  1. I've just bought an M-E on the bay with delivery likely in a few weeks. I've owned an 111f, M3 & M5 with various lenses most of which I sold to move into large format. I bought the M-E to add another option to my kit and to have a digital option. The only lens I have left is a 50mm f2 Summitar in exc condition, it is one of the limited number with coating and 10 blades. Because it is a screw mount with m adapter, will this be an issue with the camera recognising which lens I have on it? If there are differences in using the camera compared having an m mount lens what are they and what is the work around, if any? This is my first serious entry into digital having remained with film and self processing, most particularly in LF, but now I'm looking forward to having a whole new exciting and rewarding partnership with my M-E. Thanks in advance.
  2. Hallo und guten Tag, nachdem mich vor etwa zwei Jahren der Rotpunktvirus in Form einer X1 infizierte, beschäftigte ich mich mehr oder weniger auch mit den Messsucherkameras. Zur X1 gesellten sich später noch eine X-Vario und eine X-E. Die Vario ist mein treues Arbeitspferd mit einer wirklich tollen Optik und besticht durch gutes handling. Dennoch ging mir eine "M" nicht aus den Kopf, das Probehalten einer M8 brachte jedoch nicht den gewünschten Effekt. Nun war es soweit, eine gebrauchte M9 oder M-E soll es werden. Bereits vor einigen Tagen ergatterte ich ein neuwertiges Summarit 75/2.5. Warum diese Brennweite? Ich fotografiere gern am langen Ende meiner Vario (70mm) und wollte daher diesem Exoten eine chance geben. Die Lichtstärke genügt meinen Ansprüchen. Eine toll erhaltene M-E aus 2015 mit ca. 7000 Auslösungen wurde für einen fairen Kurs von meinem Vertrauenshändler angeboten, da schlug ich zu. Es ist nun das Kassenmodell in Rammsteinhaptik - aber mir gefällt sie sehr gut. Mit dem MS komme ich auch schon recht gut zurecht, ich freue mich auf die erste Fototour. Die Bedienung finde ich logisch und schnell, besonders die elegante Lösung mit dem Belichtungsspeicher und das satte Auslösegeräusch fasziniert mich. Im Zulauf habe ich einen Visoflex III, da ich auch mit Telebrennweiten arbeiten möchte. Mal schauen, was sich da noch tut. Anbei ein schnelles handyfoto Viele Grüße!
  3. Auf der Seite "Leicarumors" war ein wichtiger Hinweis zu den Akkus: Important information about Li-Ion batteries for the Leica M8/M8.2/M9/M9-P/M(9) and MONOCHROM/M-E camera models We have determined that several rechargeable batteries (Order no. 14 464) manufactured at the end of 2015 and beginning of 2016 for cameras of the M series were supplied with a defective electronic component. The effect of this is that the camera displays false information about the battery charge level for these particular batteries. In the case of the Leica M8/M8.2 models, the battery symbol in the LCD on the top plate is not displayed at all and, in the case of the Leica M9/M9-P and M-E models, shows a false, 100% charge level no matter what the actual charge level of the battery may be.
  4. Hi I am thrilled today to have received my first ever Leica. Currently selling all my Canon gear on eBay to pay for my second hand M-E with 35mm Summicron. Taken about 10 photos before work and I love it already. I'm finding it impossible though to find out when grip accessory works with the M-E that I can use the hand loop on. I plan to get back into Macro with the 90mm f4.0 one day and possibly the 21mm Super Elmar. Can anyone shed any light for me please? Any other accessories you'd recommend would be appreciated too. Alex
  5. Ok, I must be living under a rock. My M9P came with 1.176 installed and I upgraded it almost right away to 1.196 (I think that was it...) I sent the camera to NJ for a sensor replacement for corrosion a couple of months ago. I thought I'd check... and apparently 1.202 was released a year ago... where was I? So, I checked my body to find that Leica NJ had conveniently upgraded it for me while they had it in for service. I did a brief search here, but didn't find much on 1.202... does anyone know what Leica fixed in this version? I don't seem to be able to find any release notes; at least nothing that tells me what 1.202 fixed over 1.196? 1.202 doesn't even show up on the M9 Wikipedia page. Geez! Thanks! Roger
  6. Well...first time poster here...been lurking a bit. I am currently a Fuji X100T shooter and love the little guy. If there were anything close to a perfect camera for me, that would be it. You may or may not know that Fuji is sort of touted as the "poor man's Rangefinder" camera; sort of an approximation of it. It has a glass viewfinder with superimposed framelines that move according to focus distance. It doesn't have a focus patch, it has a small patch of the EVF in the lower right corner of the viewfinder so that you can see if you are in focus. So...I've always wondered; what is it about the Leica Rangefinder? Is it really that great of an experience? Is Fuji's implementation just as serviceable? I HAVE to know...I can't wonder any longer, and since I'd most likely be getting in at the cheapest price point; either an M-E now, or an M240 in 2 years...I thought that renting an M-E and 50mm Summarit would be a good real-world test. If I can bond with this combo in 4 days time (or just know that it would work for me) then the question would be settled in my mind and I could either pursue it or let it drop forever. In either case, the uncertainty would be gone...whew! So, glad to post here for the first time. It's coming a week from today and I'll give a full report of my impressions as a Leica-outsider when I'm done.

  9. So, in May, 2017 I sent my ME to Leica NJ for repair of the corroded sensor. You'll recall, this was well before Leica announced the August 15 deadline for free repairs. After the announcement, I sent my M9M to Wetzlar through Leica Store Miami. At this point, I was willing to place money that the M9M would arrive from Wetzlar before the ME arrived from NJ. Although I was very bummed about not having either of my Leicas I was mostly OK because I still had my trusty M8. I've used the M8 since then without issue until last week. Several of us caravanned down to Key West on a relief mission after Hurricane Irma. I took my M8 along with me for once-in-a-lifetime shots. Well, you can probably guess what happened. I suffered a catastrophic shutter failure at the worst possible time. No photos of the trip. None. Nada. Zero. Zilch. . . . sigh. This also presented another issue. Now I was left without any travel camera. So, yesterday I bought the Canon 40mm f/2.8 pancake lens for my 6D. Today, I mounted the lens, took some test shots and deemed it acceptable. So, I removed the vertical battery grip and the handstrap that I use along with it. This last part is a major issue as it is cumbersome to attach and to detach. Well, you can guess what happened now. Fifteen minutes later (yes, 15!) UPS arrives with my ME. Yup. All I had to do to get the fates to deliver the ME was buy the Canon 40mm! Anyway, I've tested the camera and there does not appear to be any evidence of corrosion. Still, the receipt is very cryptic. How can I be sure that the sensor has actually been properly upgraded? It does bear firmware number 1.210. Does this indicate the proper upgrade? Thanks in advance. RV
  10. I took M-E with new sensor from authorised dealer and used it on this day as my street camera. Summarit-M 35 2.5 with it.
  11. Hello all, long time lurker first time poster. I recently purchased a second hand M-E with serial number 4425XXX and test certificate dated 2014/03/13. The camera has never been sent to Leica for servicing. Upon receiving the camera I was surprised to see the LCD display screen is sapphire glass i.e. with the small etched diamond icon. Did Leica cut over to sapphire glass for the M-E at some point in the production run, or did I just get a lucky pull from the parts bin?
