    Summicron 75mm Apo ASPH - Back Focus

    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.

    Summicron 75mm Apo ASPH - Back Focus

    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 again.
  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.

    1.138 Firmware-THE ANSWER

    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.
  8. 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.

    Thickness of M9 a problem?

    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?
  12. Thank you Uliwer. Most useful answer.

    Is this a Billingham bag?

    Billingham has gone far from it's original design and quality. I am a fan of this brand and have a few of them.
