  1. Both my M240 and M246 have gotten a lot of use and traveled a lot. I ran a simple test on my 50mm f1.4 ASPH, 75mm f2 APO and 90mm f2 APO. I checked both cameras using my Lens Allign tool (obviously in manual focus mode) at a distance of 3 meters. All images show the optimum focus wide open anywhere from 5 to 10 cm behind the point I focused on. Most of my images are taken at or near infinity focus and typically at f4-f8 so the back focus is rarely noticable. Nonetheless I am a bit of perfectionist. Other forum discussions indicate the obvious that there is some level of unavoidable offset between the point of optimum focus on and image and visibly perfect allignment of the rangefinder patch. In other experience is 5-10cm backfocus at 3 m significanly beyound what others find the system will achieve?
  2. There is no autofocus function when using M lenses. I have just tried out the camera. Focus is quick and accurate. Focus peaking better. But no autofocus. Is it worth the price and the weight?
  3. Today I took the SL for a stroll together with the Noctilux. For the first time it was easy to focus this lens at f/0,95! It will be interesting to see what rangefinder developments the coming M will have that will make it competitive for decades to come.

  4. Hi all, Its been a while since I visited the forum so am glad to be back. So I picked up my 'Q' on Wednesday and am having the usual quirks one has with a new camera. Does anyone know how the turn off or lock the back wheel on the camera - I shot my first assignment with the camera today and it quickly turned into a pain - I have the camera focus point set to 'selective' or spot focusing. I carry the camera on my side or chest as normal but every time I raised the camera to my eye the focus point was in a completely different place - all over the place - If this wheel cannot be 'locked down' its a design disaster by Leica (along with my second gripe about only being able to see my images in the finder if I don't want to have the back lcd on all the time). Thoughts, advice and ideas are so welcome? Best, Charles Ommanney
  5. Hi, my 50mm Summicron (Latest non-APO) was recently repaired. Problem is, I just found out that the Range Finder patch does not aline when aiming at objects at infinity. However, the image is in focus. I use an M240 and indeed the image is in focus. Is this normal? considering that the lens was recently adjusted by leica based on the repair sheet.
  6. Hello all!I've just purchased my first Leica (M3 DS) having only ever been a digital user. I also purchased the following mighty lens: Summicron-M 50mm F/2 Type V Chrome A weighty beast to be sure! Please forgive me if this is a really obvious question about the rangefinder focus. I'm guessing the pinpoint digital sharpness factor becomes far less important with film. It's hard for me to explain but I'm wanting to know that if the images are lined up (the ghost and the real) inside the rangefinder does everything within the vicinity come into focus too? I know this has to also do with depth of field and f-stop as indicated on the first ring of the lens (the one nearest the body). If I focus an object or person within the rangefinder then adjust the camera position so said object is in the left or right of the frame, does it remain in focus? Any tips advice at all will be fantastic! Cheers, Ben
  7. Hello there, When Touch-AF focusing is selected the shutter release button continues to focus when pressed. Is there any way to avoid the shutter release to focus when pressed ? Thanks for any help.
  8. I have M8 with voigtlander 28mm f1.9 LTM with focusing problem ( back focus ). When I place an object ( eg 2 meters from camera), the lens mark distance is correctly in 2 m after I focus. But the picture result is back focus. Does anyone know what the problem is ? Thank you in advance
  9. There are certain Leica Summilux 35 1.4 non ASPH lenses that are incompatible with the M8 or M9. I have one that is made in Canada. I looked everywhere to find clues on how to fix the issue. I found little pieces of information and I wanted to do everyone else a favor by taking a video of how I resolved the issue. First, to test if you have a problem - Set the focus to 3 feet (not to infinity). Mount the lens into your M8 or M9. Move the focus ring toward infinity GENTLY. If you feel resistance before infinity - stop. You have the issue. Now, to unmount, backup your focus ring to 3 feet again and then dismount. If you have the issue, do not try to mount the lens while focus is set to infinity. Bad. The problem - There is a shroud that sticks out (a black piece of aluminum highlighted in my video) at the back of the lens. This shroud increases in height as you move to infinity. The M8 and M9 body is preventing that shroud to further stick out while moving to infinity. I have highlighted in the video exactly which part of the shroud is hitting. I also show how I've done the job myself of shaving 1mm off the shroud to allow the focus to get to infinity without obstruction. There are illustrations that say measure 7mm from the bottom of the ring to measure exactly how much to shave, but my video shows what I've done and it works for me. I'm now a happy camper. Happy enough to share what I did. PS: I did not show it but I did tape the lens glass to protect it while I was grinding the shroud with my dremel tool. Here is the video for future adventurers: https://vimeo.com/275145377 Ronnie
