  1. Thorsten, Thank you for this article. Very useful indeed. Understandably if the English is not perfect but the message delivered is loud, clear and benefit readers. Please let us know when you post the second installment. Keep up the good work.
  2. Hi Erl, As soon as I am done with comprehensive test and can conclude the results, I will send the lens and/or the M9. Thanks.
  3. Dear All, Thank you for your inputs and comments. At close distance, the focus is accurate. At beyond 5 meters it back focus by about 30 cm (i.e. although I focus at a point, the sharpness occurred about 30 cm behind it - consistently). As suggested, I will do careful test in a couple of weeks or as soon as time permit. I only found out about it recently as I usually take picture of subjects within 2 - 3 meters. The thought of parting with either the lens or M9 for a few months is not comforting. As soon as I have done the test, I will report the result back. Thanks ag
  4. Dear All, Has anyone experienced back focus on Summicron 75 Apo ASPH at a longer distant of around 8-10 metre mark, aperture F2.0, using Leica M9? I recently noticed this occurrence. Close focus of around 1m is accurate. Any comment or input as to what I need to do to rectify this? Thank you in advance.
  5. I downloaded the firmware using MacBook Pro and installed it on my M9 without problem. I was not even aware there was issue with this.
  6. I would not buy anything of value from Lucky Plaza in Singapore. Too many bad incidents and experiences. I would also avoid Alan Photo. Cathay Photo provides the best overall service and price in my personal experiences.
  7. for every good product there is...
  8. I have been using film Ms for many years and owned 8 of them. No problem whatsoever when switching to M9. I wonder why it's an issue for you? Is it a matter of habit or just feel?
  9. Thank you Uliwer. Most useful answer.
  10. Billingham has gone far from it's original design and quality. I am a fan of this brand and have a few of them.
  11. Will this lens damaged M9 when the lens is collapsed? Thanks.
  12. For those who already own 35 Lux ASPH, there maybe little reason to buy a new one. Especially if they don't encounter focusing issue. My lens is perfect on my M9. However, for those who doesn't have one, the new 35 Lux ASPH (if the rumor has truth in it) will be very compelling after having seen the 21 Lux, 24 Lux, and 50 Lux.
