There is no actual evidence that M8 by design would have much of a problem in terms of the rangefinder randomly drifting. Everything I have seen and experienced suggest it is reliable as far as rangefinder mechanisms go, although chances are there are even more reliable designs out there.
Epson R-D1 on the other hand... easy to adjust for a reason.
