Welcome Kevin!
I sold my Nikons and bougt my first Leica (R3Mot) from Philippe (Philippe, you should advertise your R8 from time to time :-)), and a Leicaflex SL. All in less than 6 months after I've joined this list. It's addictive :-)

Well, I'm in Paris on Friday and won't be able to post :-D

Should you have any questions regarding Leica reflex cameras (I've had many), this is surely the right place to ask and share. Many Connoisseurs here to help. Best,

    I have been looking at your pictures w/comments for a couple of
    weeks on this forum.  This may be the wrong place to ask, but I
    just purchased a used Leica R8 and a Leica-R 35mm F2.0 lens
    (1982 vintage).  I bought both on ebay.  I had purchased a Leica
    R4 but a camera repair store in The Netherlands told me the body
was a complete wreck.

    Pity, I had one for you ...

    So I bid on the R8 which I just purchased yesterday and have yet
    to receive via mail.  Question:  can I just attach the lens to
    the R8, focus, and set aperature/speed based upon light meter
    readout in viewfinder and shoot?

    Yes you can. ;-)
    I do that with mine.
    Wonderful to have a newby on board, welcome Kevin.
    Bien cordialement from old Europe

    I have used a Leica Digilux 2 for three years and I enjoy the
    camera immensely, but I want to do black and white and I don't
    like the shutter delay.  Also shooting Hasselblad 500CM, but
    just learning that as well.  Decided I wanted a 35mm for
