Hi Guys, I've been using my M6 TTL without an issue for sometime and then I left it dormant for around a year when I left the country... Now the meter wont work , the M6 would work fine and still take pictures if exposed correctly with an external light meter, but the mechanism now would not turn on. I'm based in NYC and have sent it to the Leica repair and they sent it back saying that they can't fix it because they "no longer have the parts", I contact Sherry Krauter and she said that she gets her parts from Leica, so if they don't have it, she won't either. So really now I'm just asking for help! Thanks! H
Hello everyone! I have aquired an M3, which so far looks allright to me, some bigger dents, shutter sounds like a charm, viever is bright and clear, but there is one issue that maybe you can help me. The strange thing is about the advance lever, I recognized when using it. Having forgotten if I advanced it allready after taking a picture or not I advanced it and it moved but it was allready strained. The lever seems to not get into the fix position after straining and still moves on in a loose way. I have a short video I just made with my phone right here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/f6emlz6nmzpe43j/IMG_0215.MOV?dl=0 Does anybody know where this could come from? And if this is something serious to care about? I d love to fix it but don t have the budget if this would be expersive. I never saw something like this on a film m. Thanks a lot in advance, best regards Christian
Hi, I am new to the forum and new to Leica. In fact, I just bought my first Leica this evening, a black M7. (I owned a M2 for about a week I got in a trade, but had to resell it before using it, before I was interested in owning a Leica). However I was a bit naive going into it. I found a nice article detailing what to look for when buying a Leica M (change in shutter speeds, etc). However I think my M7 has a problem that I have not been able to find any info on ANYWHERE on the internet, and I have been searching for hours. A little backstory: The guy I bought this off of was the original owner, and he said he bought it ten years ago. He said he has run around 10 rolls of film through it, and hasn't used it for years. It's in mint condition cosmetically. I would believe his 10 roll claim. While looking at the camera, I noticed that the LED lights in the viewfinder were quite blurry, doubled, and seemed to be reflecting. He had no idea if this was a problem or not, and neither did I. I didn't have my glasses at the time and thought it may just be my eyes. I thought I was getting a good deal, so I bought it without thinking about it much further. Upon getting it home, I have wiped off both sides of the viewfinder, the rangefinder, and the lens. I cannot figure out what the problem is, so hopefully you can help. I am adding two pictures here. The first one is how I assume the LED's should look, and the second one is how mine look when I look through the viewfinder. Any ideas are welcome. I am hoping that this is not a major issue, as I really want my first real Leica purchase to be a positive one. Notes: -The seller put in brand new batteries today. They say CR 1/3N on them. -This is my first Leica, but the actual view through the viewfinder, and focusing through the rangefinder seem to be working fine. -My serial number is 2885xxx How I think it should look: http://i704.photobucket.com/albums/ww48/videomatt916/goodviewfinder.jpg How mine looks (the best I can demonstrate): http://i704.photobucket.com/albums/ww48/videomatt916/badviewfinder.jpg
Dear Leica, Can you provide a firmware update for the Leica M8 with the following feature, please? It really would make me very happy. “Because we’ve all missed a shot or two by flipping the shooting mode selector switch to self-timer by accident, Leica has come to the rescue with a 0 sec self-timer menu setting. In other words, it disables the self-timer and makes the shutter release behave like it would in single shot mode. Just another example of working to address user concerns.” - David Farka, Leica M9 Review: Shooting in Wetzlar, Germany Thanks! Simon
