  1. Hello Everyone, My M240's Shutter Speed dial has become misaligned. When set to A the camera reads 1/30th. Does anyone know how to fix this or do I have to send it into Leica? If so, how much would something like this cost to get fixed? Thanks!
  2. I am not sure where to put this thread so I will put it here since the Zenit M is said by some sources to be "essentially a Leica M 240." To be honest, the camera itself doesn't have much of a pull for me; the 35mm f/1.0 lens is interesting, though. It would be great to see some test shots from that lens. Only 500 of these kits will be available, according to the article. Priced at $7000 USD, I think I'll pass. Here are two links with articles about the Zenit M: https://leicarumors.com/2019/12/15/the-zenit-m-camera-with-leica-m-mount-is-now-available-for-purchase-in-the-us.aspx/ https://petapixel.com/2019/12/16/the-zenit-m-full-frame-rangerfinder-made-by-leica-is-finally-available-in-the-us/?mc_cid=6ad6d1a39e&mc_eid=08903530b5
  3. I put away the Leica hand-grip and installed the stock bottom cover today and I realize there is rubber opening that aligns with the SD card. I have never used the stock cover... so can I remove the SD card thru that slot without take off the bottom cover, or even without powering off the camera? Thanks!! In additional, I have a MP version in black. Does the bottom cover brassing like to top plate as well? That would be sooo pretty!!

  5. I have a trip planned for January 2020 to the Azores and Lisbon. I plan on bringing my M240 with 35 Cron, and 28 Ultron VM. I want to do some landscape and seascape images and would like to get a wide or ultra wide angle lens. I'm looking for suggestions or user experience on what is available. Right now my top choices are the Voigtlander 12mm f5.6 (which i can use on my Xpro2 as well) or Voigtlander 15mm f4.5 which will be cheaper but won't be useful on my crop sensor (I already have that focal length covered). My other option would be the Leica 21mm f3.4 SEM... which I hear is an excellent lens but would require me to sell some gear fast to afford it. Anyone have any other suggestions or can give me insight on their experience with the choices i have listed?

    Mike the Magician

    While I was having coffee at my favourite place this guy was sat running his office over his cup of coffee. "Hi, it's Mike the Magician" he said down the telephone. Sadly the guy at the other end didn't seem to know who he was. I took this candid shot of him with the M240 + 50mm lens at 1600iso. I then processed it through Lightroom Classic. Hope you like it!

    I have been in a rut lately so have posted very little. However I did shoot this a few days ago because I liked the combination of colours. I hope you think the effort was worthwhile! Leica M240 + 50mm Summicron-M f2 @400iso. Gerry

  10. Hi All, I recently just purchsed the Leica M10 (upgraded from the M240), and would like to seek your advice on which of the 2 lenses above I should get. I have attached the following list of bodies and lenses that I currently have. M10 M6 Konica Hexanon 60mm F1.2 Leica 50mm F2 Summicron APO Leica 35mm F2 Summicron Version 2 (8 elements) I shoot with my digial M 95% of the time (well I did only just recently purchased the M6) with my 50APO. I plan on using the 8 Elements more on the M6 for Black and White photography. So now that I am looking to add a wide angle lens, which of the 2 would you recommend? I know many people say that it's best to pair a 28mm with a 50mm, and a 24mm with a 35mm; and that 28 would work better if I wish to shoot some street + landscape, whereas the 24mm will be better for pure landscape. But do both lenses render really differently? Is it that much more convenient knowing that u do not need an EVF for the Elmarit? Could the Elmar be used for some street photography as well? And since the 28mm is much newer, does it have something the other doesn't? I would really appreciate if those of you who own / have used both lens could let me know your thoughts on both lenses performance wise, and which would you pick if you were me. Thanks a bunch! Cheers, Jeffrey
  11. I was trying to use a 7Artisans 28/1.4 M fit lens on my M240. I went into manual lens selection, with the expectation of being able to declare it as a 28/f1.4 Summilux, only to find that this lens was not listed, unlike on my SL and CL. On checking, I found that the latest firmware release,, dates from around 20 months ago in November 2017 and does not seem to allow for a number of the latest lenses such as the 28 Summilux. I also noticed that a number of the links on Leica's download page for the M240 are dead or inactive (take you to a blank page). It would seem that the M240 is now being written out of Leica's consciousness, even though it is still listed as a current product. It cannot be a big rewrite of the firmware to add additional lenses if the firmware was well written in the first place, as this should have been allowed for. On the basis of past experience, it is an extremely laborious process to get Leica to listen when they have made firmware errors and/or omissions and can take up to 2 years to get these corrected, after Leica have admitted that they have made an error or omission. The GPS error on the multifunction grip is a good example of this, when GPS was pretty much disabled by an FW update error and it took 2 years for Leica to correct it, in spite of many reminders from me and others.

  14. Hello everybody, I know that Summicron 35 Asph. (v5), does focus shift a bit if used on digital, while not as much as Summilux Asph pre-FLE or others, older design. I've used one on film for years without any problem back in the 90s, sold it many years ago, and recently I've bought another one, used, for my M digital. I'm not looking for perfection, nor doing endless testing on focus chart to split hairs, but this one seems to show too much focus shift even in real pictures: please look at these samples (I have many many others, and, by the way, when I engage the EVF I can clearly see the difference between the sharp, magnified image in EVF and the yet-not-coincident one in rangefinder patch at f/4, so I can exclude a focusing error from my part) (I use Dropbox to upload full-res samples) First sample, f/2, focus on the first plant (a couple of meters away from the camera), seems to me spot-on (and a pretty good wide open performance) https://www.dropbox.com/s/6kq47e913lugejp/216%20f2%20plant.jpg?dl=0 Second one, f/4, focus on the same plant... but sharpness has shifted to the plant behind the first one, and to the background: the plant in the foreground is clearly less sharp than in the wide open shot. https://www.dropbox.com/s/0qej8xtdvxn7042/215%20f4%20plant.jpg?dl=0 Third one, f/4, focus on the little shovel's handle... now first plant seems to be in focus as it should: https://www.dropbox.com/s/2v9kjqn4o2gbwxx/214%20f4%20handle.jpg?dl=0 Should I return the lens, or any Summicron 35 v5 behaves more or less that way when used on M240? (today is the last day I can return it, by the way) Thanks in advance, any advice will be appreciated. S. edit: fixed link URLs
  15. The only item that has attracted my attention in the launch of the new TL system is the EVF Visoflex Type 020 and I believe that the Leica M system deserves an updated version of its EVF with higher resolution, sensor for the eye (to switch it on/off), a tilt and swivel movement for more convenience....so Leica I hope this one is coming Your thoughts / input please...

  17. Hi all, I'm looking for some first-hand information on universal finders for M240. I'm wearing glasses, unfortunately, so it's difficult for me to see frame's edges in RF viewfinders: eye relief is critically important to me. Alternatives are: - Voigtlander Zoom Finder 15-35 (discontinued but still in stock somewhere, I think) - Leica 21/24/28 (..I've read bad reviews of this...) - Leica 16-28 aka "Frankenfinder" - any other? Could someone kindly tell me something about these finders? Actually I'm using Leica plastic single-focal finders (and old metal ones), and eye relief is (barely) enough for me. Do Zeiss finders have more? Thank you in advance S.
  18. My Leica developed a misalignment during my trip to Chicago last week. It was prominent at infinity. Shm it sucked so I emailed Leica repair got a out of the office message Then on Monday Bill Weier emailed me back and told me to bring it in they can fix it in an hour or so if I brought it in early in the morning while I waited. Cool my Leica also had some play in the screen and it's been like that since the last fix but I didn't mention it. Went there in the morning and the place seemed busy. Bill came right out and was a great guy. I had brought my Zeiss lens with me so he took the set to the back. A few minutes later he said,"Hey your rangefinder is out of alignment but so is your lens. It's back focusing. We can fix the rangefinder but not the lens" Oh NO! But hey I had a warranty with Zeiss so off that goes tomorrow. Then Bill says," Hey did you know about this?" as he pushes on the screen with his finger. I shake my head yes. He says," Hey when its this bad that means the seals failed completely and they need to fix it because dust is going into the camera." Well last time it came back cleaned with no dust behind the lcd but then developed the play. So I say ok well let's get that fixed you convinced me. He said it should take 3 weeks. Long story short... my camera is gone long gone lol. I drove all the way there because last time shipping something expensive ups lost it and that was a fiasco. Sorry for boring you guys. Oh ps. There weren't any free magazines......

  20. Hi all, How good is Biogon-C 35 2.8 on M240? Being conceived for film / crop sensors, is there any color cast and/or corner smearing used on full frame digital? And how is compared to Summarit 2.4/35 and 2.5/35? By the way, I've seen MTF figures between 2.4 and 2.5 and they seem slight different, 2.4 seems to be less sharp in center but sharper in the corners than its 2.5 predecessor. Anyone who tried both? How they compares to last (v5/v6) Summicron, that I know quite well? Thanks in advance S.
  21. Hi, Anybody knows how can take video more than 4GB by a M240? My camera stops recording video after 4GB, and it makes problem when I am recording an interview. Thanks,
  22. Hi all, I would like to know from Lightroom users what are your "starting point" sharpening settings, ie. how much amount/radius/detail gives you best results. Thanks S.
  23. Hi Guys, Has anyone tried the newly released Handevision IBERIT series of lenses on your M camera? Just looking for some input on what looks to be a valuable alternative. Thanks. Robert E
