  1. I wonder if these recent QC issues with film cameras is partly as a result of making the film M’s in batches rather than a regular production line camera.
  2. Its pretty deflating to see such a huge price hike here in Australia as I ve said earlier in the thread. I have owned each of the Digi M bodies including the M10 with a trade in for each successive body. The trade in now (changeover) cost is simply too high to justify and the feature set, apart from the ability to "print bigger and crop at will" doesn't speak to me. I will stay put but I wish Leica would maybe try and think about getting these cameras into the hands of more people rather than pricing them out of reach
  3. The case is very different here in Australia - for reasons best left to Leica to explain, the cost of the M10R here is $13500AUD whereas the M10 is still available for just under $10,000AUD. Can someone explain to me the price difference in Australia whereas in the US it appears the M10R is only a slight premium (hundreds of dollars) over the M10?
  4. I think the best analogy for me is that the M10 is like an acoustic guitar. It’s difficult to hide behind the complete lack of technology unlike an electric guitar which requires amplification, often effect pedals (ie like say the bells and whistles of a Sony). It makes you work a little harder for the shot but at the same time the lack of features is a blessing.
  5. They are the two M lenses I own. 28 Cron and 50 Lux. Perfect combo Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. I have the M10 and the 28 Cron and to be frank, can't really tell the difference in terms of FOV compared to the M240 or M9. Its still a bit of a struggle to see the whole FOV in one go
  7. The artist and artisan range is generally more flexible and looks less like a camera bag than the Billingham options. I've never gone for the "dentist on holiday" look that Billingham bags lean towards. I'm also not convinced by extensive swathes of leather on camera bags given past experience with mould issues.

  8. Does the same issue exist for the M6 classic? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. It is. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Enjoyed the review and images Adam. Looking forward to the wedding pics. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Mine was spot on. I'd be reluctant to fiddle with such a newly purchased camera though. May as well send back in and let Leica deal with it Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. I've used the M10 now for a month. Everything about this camera is significantly better than the M240. The size, the focus peaking implementation, the rangefinder, the viewfinder, the menu system, and most importantly the image quality (color, ISO sensitivity). No regrets whatsoever Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Unlike previous incarnations of the digital M, I have noticed far less criticism and/or negativity about the M10 which to my mind speaks to its refinement. I am very impressed with the camera and believe that Leica have finally produced a digital M that is worthy of the M moniker. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. The rangefinder on the M10 definitely appears to be more precise and/or accurate. I previously had issues with some lenses not behaving well with the M9 and M240 but none of those issues have arisen so far with the M10. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. I picked up my M10 last week and am thoroughly impressed. I owned the M9, M240 previously and hands down the 28 Cron version 1 has mated perfectly with the M10. Beautiful colors and no complaints whatsoever. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
