    thedirektor has posted in Leica M7 now discontinued in Leica M-A / M7 / MP and Film M.
    Does anyone know how serviceable the M7 will be in the future ? Are the electronics going to be a problem ?

    lct has posted in Leica 50mm Summicron APO vs 50mm Summilux (unmarked, but also APO) - is there a drastic difference at f/2? in Leica M Lenses.
    P. Karbe: « One Saturday morning, I woke up and remembered that the Summilux 75mm f/1.4 was derived from the Summilux 50mm f/1.4 (designed by Dr. Mandler) and I decided to try the same basic idea w...

    tritentrue has posted in M vs. TL lenses on the CL? in Leica CL Forum.
    After ditching my TL lenses along with my TL2 some time back, I decided to use my R lenses and focus manually on the CL.    Why?  First of all, I thought the TL zooms were great unti...

    Too bad:  with Auto exposure the M7 brought something different and new to analog Leica M photography.   The surviving offerings (M-A and MP) appeal to those who wish to strip down that s...

    S-T-P has posted in rangefinder alignment question in Leica M (Type 240 / 262).
    To my knowledge the vertical alignment of the M10 and M(240) can be adjusted with a 2mm hex key. A good quality key is available below 5 Euro, preferably from a professional tool shop. Does that...

    Pity. 16 years is a pretty good production run for a camera and especially one which has had to compete against an incoming tide of digital competitors. Whilst all success stories come to an end, I...

    Yes, per Peter Karbe the Lux is also an APO.  They decided not to name it as such.   He has said that the 75mm Apo-Summicron was derived from the 50mm Summilux Aspheric design. Think...

    hektor has posted in I love my M5 in Leica M-A / M7 / MP and Film M.
    Agreed.  I prefer the M5 to the more modern M7.  It is intuitive and more ergonomic.  Too far ahead of its time when the SLR ruled supreme.
