The magenta tone taken on by certain synthetic materials, the most widespread complaint about the camera, was evident because I was shooting without the corrective filters Leica now supplies. But at times this was actually quite entertaining. One day, I went to a lunch party with dozens of important Iraqi politicians, some of whom are exorbitantly wealthy and speak highly of their Saville Row tailors. With their Rolex watches, Cuban cigars and well-cut suits, they looked the part to me. The M8, though, saw Rolex watches, Cuban cigars and well-cut polyester suits. Though the magenta casts were annoying at times, the problem isn't that bad, and it's corrected easily enough in Photoshop.
