From the Manufacturer
The new Leica M8.2 is a significant development of the digital rangefinder camera for professionals, the M8. Where important attributes of Leica M8 such as discretion, intuitive work and robustness have been further improved.
Even more intuitive operation
The new snapshot mode "S" can be particularly useful in tight reportage conditions. It will also appeal to all those who use short focal lengths from 21 to 35 mm and want good results right away without knowing a lot about photography. If the shutter speed dial is turned to the new "S" setting, the camera controls all the key features automatically, such as automatic exposure (aperture priority), automatic ISO speed setting and automatic white balance. Another new feature is a quick override setting.
For more precise framing at long distances, the bright-line frames in the viewfinder have been designed to handle larger framing areas.
Robustness & discretion
The new Leica M8.2 is the very first professional digital camera to use an ultra scratch-resistant sapphire crystal as coverglass for the camera monitor. It is so hard that it can only be worked with special diamond tools. The camera also sports a new easy-grip and specially robust "vulcanit" finish.
Thanks to numerous detailed modifications, the noise and vibration of the shutter action have been audibly and noticeably reduced even further. The fastest shutter speed of the metal blade focal-plane shutter is 1/4000 s, and the flash sync speed is 1/180 s. To make the camera even more discreet in critical situations, the photographer may personally determine the suitable moment when the shutter is cocked.
Compact and quick - New charger unit
The new compact charger unit is designed to take up a minimum of space in the photograper's bag and has a quick-charge function when charging the battery. The LED flashes yellow after about two hours when 80 percent of the charging capacity has been reached. This is already sufficient for about 400 exposures.
Top customer reviews
I picked in this camera and a summicron-m 50 f/2 and voigtlander 21 f/4 and am stunned at the results -- amazing dynamic range in the DNG files and beautiful character of light in the hard transitions of light to dark.
Still, it's fully manual, so you'll have to work for your images, but man, is it worth it!
Bonus -- nobody knows it's a professional camera so it's easier to get better stuff documentary-style.
