Hi guys, After idly wondering for the past few years how to figure out the shutter count on my M Monochrome mk1, I finally did a little research. I found this excellent (i.e. very easy even for me to use) Leica app on the Leica Rumors site - https://leicarumors.com/2010/11/02/free-software-for-viewing-leica-m9-images-and-exif-data.aspx/ Dragged the most recent file I shot onto the app, and found that the shutter actuations on my camera number 36,950. Does anyone think that's a high number? I know that pro Nikon and Canon cameras are over-engineered, and their shutters are designed to exceed 250,000 but the M9/M Monochrom mk 1, I think, is not designed for that kind of high mileage. Leica were kind enough to replace my sensor last year (for free), and I just wonder how many more useful years are left on the shutter of my cherished camera. Anyway, if you've ever wondered about your shutter count, do get the app - it's incredibly simple to use. Best wishes all, Colin
Hi guys, After my recent trip to Hong Kong, I think it's time to put down my 50 pound Canon 1Ds-MarkIII and start enjoying travel photography again and possibly joining the Leica world with an M8 or M8.2. I have a question for everybody... is 16747 Actuations a little too many when considering the purchase of a used digi-M? The price seems fair right now but it definitely seems to be a more loved camera than other M8's on eBay. Would love to hear your thoughts on this...
