On selling my M9 I removed my minus 2 eyepiece diopter and transferred it to my new M10. To make that possible I purchased and incorporated the Leica M9/M240 to M10 eyepiece adaptor. I have now noticed that my viewfinder is no longer sharp compared to my M9 experience and focusing is difficult. Has anyone else noticed differences since switching from one model to M10. I appreciate that the basic M9 body incorporated 0.5 compensation. Has Leica removed this internal compensation from the M10? Comments from users with similar setups are welcomed
Hi Guys, I am a new leica user starting with a handsome m3 camera a few months ago. Really loved the camera but i had lost the eyepiece part. I guess it falled somewhr cause it is a 60+ years old camera. The problem is i do not know the parts exact name and how i could find it. A friend of mine gave me the part of m2's but i cant see anything with it. I am uploading 2 photos so you may see and help me about it. --------------------------------------------------
Hello folks, I followed this forum for several months – and now I joined "the club" by receiving my steelgray M9 - finally. ) As first lens I bought a second hand Noctilux1.0/50. I know: not the easiest starting point, but coming from Canon 5D MkII (which I will keep for T/S architecture and video work), I know for sure, that I love to shoot minimal DOF (85/1.2 and 35/1.4 on my 5D). As second lens I ordered the new Summilux 35/1.4. Now my questions: I'm thinking of buying two accessories for the M9 and need some advice: 1.) MS MAG x1.35 by Japan Exposure: I need an diopter to focus precisely wide open, and I think, the Magnifier should help further. Is the light meter in the viewfinder still visible with the x.135 – or how does it change? 2.) Thumbs Up: The Noctilux is quite heavy and Thumps Up should help me to hold the camera more relaxed and stable. I'd like to buy the steel gray EP-1. There is a offer on the bay by popflash.photo888. Are they recommendable? On machtechnical.com there are only black ones. Is there any difference? Thanks a lot for your help, Ralf
