  1. Thankyou Steven , Now I did not suggest that your photographs were 'crappy,' and as we are all in a pandemic lockdown with rubbish weather finding something that makes a Leica 35mm APO sing is a tough call. Maybe they should have released the lens when it is more widely available and we are all out of lock down , then we could all be more creative. Regards Matthew
  2. Steven something worthy of such great a great development in photography , not something your dog created. Something with strong side light , deep shadows and texture . Bustling streets of people , scrub that were in a pandemic. Just do a study of light and reflections Regards Matthew

    Leica M 10

    It could be a test / prototype camera and not the finished M10 . You quite often see these cameras turn up on Leica auctions as test cameras.
  5. The GPS in the multifunctional handgrip does require a reset of the M240 to acquire a GPS signal from my experience if this is any help. Try a reset of the M240 ,in the cameras menu and then switch off the GPS and switch it on , a signal should be acquired if the weather is clear within a few minutes. Remember to switch off the GPS to save battery if not required as it does increase battery consumption. I hope this helps, Matt

    LFI8

    Hello Jason, Upon emailing LFI regarding my missing LFI8/11 it turns out that the credit card they were using to renew my account had expired back in June /11.I was only notified of this upon chasing up my missing copy ,which i received today. This might be worth checking as some credit cards have short expiry dates. Cheers Matthew.

    LFI8

    Anyone in the UK still awaiting LFI8,dont want to start sending emails if others are still waiting,as its getting well over due now, Matthew.
  10. Looks like Seal has already got his own ''special edition M9 '',that Leica has made for the AP Ffordes competition,same finish ,minus logo and lettering,different leather covering ,what do you think ?
  11. yesss... status now "packed"... as well !! this lens will really make the M9 a go everywhere with me camera, Matthew.
  12. Horazio, Any update on your order status as it is well over a week since I placed my order ,and still no change, Matthew
  13. Horazio, When did you order your lens ,as mine still says ''processing'' on the Japan Exposure website ,when I placed the order on 5/1 .I know Chris is still waiting as well,lets hope its not to many days/weeks Matthew
  14. Just look at the size of that viewfinder eye piece, that has to be full frame ,regardless it being an M9 or whatever they are going to call it .............
  15. Its not a rubbish lens,but just not designed for the M8,thats why i sold my noctilux and brought a 50 f1.4 asph which is smaller and better suited for my needs than a noctilux. As someone said earlier the noctilux was designed over 30 years ago with film in mind, Cheers Matthew.
  16. Here is what has been posted on WeyCameras website regarding the price increases, Please note that Leica will shortly implement prices changes on the M8 and 16-18-21 Tri Elmar. from the 1st Oct the M8 will rise £400.00 to £3390.00 and the Tri Elmar will rise £700.00 to £3180.00 Order soon and make significant savings. Never seen this before,glad that I brought them at the old prices !, Cheers Matthew.
  17. David, Glad to see that it went to a fellow Leica Forum user,it will be missed ,but I have had the WATE for over 2 months now and something had to go, Cheers Matthew.
  18. David, You didn't by any chance buy it from Aperture Photographic yesterday,as I have just sold one through them to help pay for my new WATE, Cheers Matthew.
  19. Robert, I would send another email to the reply email that you got from Leica M8 Support Team when you ordered your 2 filters.They are very responsive and as long as the filters are in stock you will see something soon, Cheers Matthew.
  20. I just got a hood from my Leica dealer £116.00 for the E49 mkII luckily because of what I have purchased in the past M8,WATE etc they were able to give some discount off the retail price. I would strongly urge you to get one quick or they will run out of stock ,most dealers said it was an order only item,luckily the one I wanted was in stock at Leica and it arrived in 3 days, David, Check with your dealer as it turns out there are two types of hood for the E49 MkII MATE as I found out when i tried the one that they had in stock,mine was the early E49 mkII not the current E49 MK

  22. Guy Yes the framelines do change when you switch it between 28-35-50, I was very lucky to buy a s/h E49 version that was 6 bit coded recently,the only expensive part was the hood £116.00 ,luckly my dealer gave me some discount, Cheers Matthew.
  23. Just to let everyone who is posting on other threads about slow delivery of the 55 UV/IR filter that I have just received my 49 and 55 UV/IR filters today by FedEx here in the UK, Well done Leica for a prompt response, Cheers Matthew.
  24. Just to follow up my previous post i have just received my 49 and 55 filters by FedEx Well done Leica for a prompt response Cheers Matthew.
  25. I have just received an email to say that they are Fedex-ing my 49 and 55 today and it should be with me by Monday next week at the latest. I started sending them emails asking because i am off on our holidays next weekend and really needed the filters. Try sending an email to your reply from the M8 support team and see if they can help, Cheers, Matthew.
