    I am considering having a couple of my R series 3 cam lenses upgraded to the ROM version, so I can have full metering use and readout with my R8 camera body...without the ROM lenses the internal display info in the R8 and R9 are useless...the camera is only usable in the non-metered Manual mode. It's a little pricey to have them converted (but anything Leica is expensive anyway) but it will give me full function metering with the body. Has anyone in this forum had this done ? And with what success....Thanks..Bill
