I have used an M(240) with success for 10 months in conventional rangefinder mode with several lenses and only today tried for the first time to use an R lens with the LV mode. Lens was the 180/3.4 APO which seemed to perform satisfactorily for a few minutes until the LCD showed horizontal lines of mostly magenta color and increasing in number from 1 or 2 up to many over a period of a few minutes. Lens used with an R/M adapter. Minolta EVF attached or not made no difference. Turning camera off/on made no difference. Few hours after that I tried using LV to check rangefinder focus accuracy of much loved 50/2.8 Elmar M. Same horizontal stripes without EVF attached. Stripes appear in both DNG and JPG files. Stripes never appear without LV turned on. But RF focus on inner edge of frame of picture spot on so the LV is indeed handy for that test. Is this a known problem? With an easy solution? Will try to attach photos. Had to reduce size but problem should show. 293 No banding at turn on of camera with 180mm. 303 Few stripes after few minutes 304 Example of many stripes soon after that 309 Check of rangefinder focus on inner edge of frame with 50mm In case I have to send it in to Leica and might not be back in US until after 1 year from purchase is up, would they accept notice of problem now but permit delayed return shipment of camera??
