    can't wait. I'm not expecting miracles, but I am hoping for a "wow, this is a lot nicer than what i've been getting from my Exilim"...some form of noticeable difference in point & shoot quality

    "wow, this is a lot nicer than what i've been getting from my Exilim"

    My wife just bought a D-Lux 3 a couple of weeks ago, and that has been her reaction thus far, after using a Canon Powershot S500 for the past few years.

    Any camera, film or digital, is only as good as its optics. Leica digital cameras all have Leica aspherical lenses, which are cutting edge. It doesn't get any better.

    I had a DL4 then recently swapped to the Oly PEN to get me started on a compact digital camera with manual as well as swappable lens (in particular Leica M) in the preparation of getting a M8..

    2 months later.. I get my hands on a M8 & 2 days of steep learning.. The PEN was an almost instant success for me (8/10 pics were IMO excellent for my level & more than enough for WAYW posts), as for the M8 it is frustratingly good - that is you have to work it (I may get 2/10 pics, but DANG it's a joy).

    Yesterday was my 1st day of using a M8 for my WAYWT pics were with the M8 + CV 35mm f/1.4 (except of the ones of the M8 - that was by the PEN + 17mm kit pancake lens)

    Almost certainly Filson, I'm more curious about the straps on those cameras.

    I was curious as well; looks like it may be the small field bag. Very nice looking - never would have considered it based on pics on the site, and now I want one!
