  1. So I wanted to offer some advice to anyone considering buying a M240 in 2021. Having just parted with mine I can say that it is a lovely camera that has good image quality, but only good quality, I would compare the quality to a canon 5D Mark 2. I would say that if you are coming from an APSC crop sensor you will really notice and like the image this camera makes however if you are coming from a 5Dmk2/3/4 or any of the last 4 years Sony body's you will be disappointed and probably extremely disappointed with the ISO performance. So on the subject of ISO, 1600 is about max that you'd
  2. Hello Everyone, My M240's Shutter Speed dial has become misaligned. When set to A the camera reads 1/30th. Does anyone know how to fix this or do I have to send it into Leica? If so, how much would something like this cost to get fixed? Thanks!
  3. Just took delivery of a sliver M240 from a pretty reputable seller on ebay. The camera has practically no markings on it anywhere except for (see pic). I've reached out to the seller, and I'll hear back soon. In the meantime, has anyone ever seen this? Thanx!
  4. Hi guys, I bought an M-P last April, and I have been using it ever since, no problem at all. But last Monday, when I was out shooting photos with it, I noticed one strange thing, after I captured a photo, I pressed the "Play" Button to view it, however, that photo was automatically zoomed in, as if I had moved the thumb wheel, but I didn't do that obviously. I don't remember if I ever put my thumb on the thumb wheel, but I was pretty sure I didn't move it. And it occurred only once, I have done some shooting the following day too, but nothing happened. So have you guys encountered
  5. Hallo Leute, nachdem ich mir manchmal denke, das man nur einmal lebt, muss jetzt eine M240er her. Aus meiner Sicht gerade preislich ein guter Einstieg in das M System. Gesagt getan. Meine Traumlinse, das Leica Summilux-M 24mm 1.4 ASPH ist mir aber einfach zu teuer - und zu schwer. Ich wusste, wenn es mal eine M wird, dann ist das Voigtländer Classic Collection Nokton 35mm 1.4 auf jeden Fall meine engere Wahl. Meine Frage: Auf was sollte man achten? Es gibt auch SC und MC, und warum gibt es diese kaum gebraucht, oder bin ich blind? Danke schon mal. Euch allen sch
  6. So I just picked up an M240 and wanted to ask current users - how do people shoot these to get the best results ? Do you under or overexpose the files? I'm using uncompressed DNG is it noticeable over the compressed files? Thanks for any info. Dan
  7. For unknown reason(s) an oddity is happening with indicated exposure times seen in viewfinder. After making an exposure, for the next two exposures there is no variation in indicated exposure time when panning about with camera. After the third exposure, the indication again varies properly as you pan about different scenes. Then repeats. As if there were an unwanted exposure lock mode in effect for 2nd and 3rd shot of a 3 shot sequence.. Cannot find any obvious settings error likely to be the cause. The bracketing is set to 0. Tried to reload latest firmware but it "completes" in ab
  8. I recently bought an Orion-18 28mm F5.6 lens and coded it as Summaron. The lens has the same structure. [I like it for its compactness and low 'profile'.] I use it on my M240 but bought it for Monochrom. However, I notice some small tinge of purple on the top of this image in the sky. Should I use an IR/UV filter on this lens like on the M8? The Orion accepts 40.5 mm filters. This reminds me of the M8. I remember JaapV once said the M240 has some IR issues. And would [sometimes] need a light IR filter. I tried the M8 filters by Leica on the M240 but did not like the result. Probabl
  9. Hi all, I'm looking for some first-hand information on universal finders for M240. I'm wearing glasses, unfortunately, so it's difficult for me to see frame's edges in RF viewfinders: eye relief is critically important to me. Alternatives are: - Voigtlander Zoom Finder 15-35 (discontinued but still in stock somewhere, I think) - Leica 21/24/28 (..I've read bad reviews of this...) - Leica 16-28 aka "Frankenfinder" - any other? Could someone kindly tell me something about these finders? Actually I'm using Leica plastic single-focal finders (and old metal ones), and eye relief is (barel
  10. My Leica developed a misalignment during my trip to Chicago last week. It was prominent at infinity. Shm it sucked so I emailed Leica repair got a out of the office message Then on Monday Bill Weier emailed me back and told me to bring it in they can fix it in an hour or so if I brought it in early in the morning while I waited. Cool my Leica also had some play in the screen and it's been like that since the last fix but I didn't mention it. Went there in the morning and the place seemed busy. Bill came right out and was a great guy. I had brought my Zeiss lens with me so he took the set to t
  11. Hi all, How good is Biogon-C 35 2.8 on M240? Being conceived for film / crop sensors, is there any color cast and/or corner smearing used on full frame digital? And how is compared to Summarit 2.4/35 and 2.5/35? By the way, I've seen MTF figures between 2.4 and 2.5 and they seem slight different, 2.4 seems to be less sharp in center but sharper in the corners than its 2.5 predecessor. Anyone who tried both? How they compares to last (v5/v6) Summicron, that I know quite well? Thanks in advance S.
  12. Hi, Anybody knows how can take video more than 4GB by a M240? My camera stops recording video after 4GB, and it makes problem when I am recording an interview. Thanks,

  14. Hello everybody, I know that Summicron 35 Asph. (v5), does focus shift a bit if used on digital, while not as much as Summilux Asph pre-FLE or others, older design. I've used one on film for years without any problem back in the 90s, sold it many years ago, and recently I've bought another one, used, for my M digital. I'm not looking for perfection, nor doing endless testing on focus chart to split hairs, but this one seems to show too much focus shift even in real pictures: please look at these samples (I have many many others, and, by the way, when I engage the EVF I can clearly
  15. Hi all, I would like to know from Lightroom users what are your "starting point" sharpening settings, ie. how much amount/radius/detail gives you best results. Thanks S.
  16. I have bought a Leica m240 and now I have problems to get a sharp image with my Summicron 2/50 E3571xxx wide open. I have difficulties getting for example sharp eyes. The sharp point is always shifted. Should I get an Viewfinder Magnifier M 1.4x? Or M 1.25x? Or do I have to get a 6 bit coding? I hope I get an answer. Best wishes, Felix
  17. Looking to purchase a 24mm Elmar. Found a great deal on a new lens. Would like to hear from M240 and other M owners how they like it especially since it will be used primarily on a M240. Have heard that the new 3.8 is better then the last generation 2.8. The 3.8 has different characteristics and is a little more contrast to it.
  18. Has anyone heard of this issue and / or know the impact of this? I can't seem to find anything on it.

  20. Hi all- Thanks for your response in advance. I bought a used M240 recently followed by a new MP 240. I am new to Leica and come from the Sony/Nikon world. so please excuse me if this question is stupid. I set both camera's to exact same firmware, same menu settings, same metering modes etc Below are my observations can you please validate if there is a issue 1. The LCD on MP240 looks less brighter and has a more warmer tone than M240 - Is this the case because of the Sapphire glass? 2. MP 240 under exposes compared to M 240? - same conditions, same lens, I tend to find MP 240 und
  21. Hi All, I recently just purchsed the Leica M10 (upgraded from the M240), and would like to seek your advice on which of the 2 lenses above I should get. I have attached the following list of bodies and lenses that I currently have. M10 M6 Konica Hexanon 60mm F1.2 Leica 50mm F2 Summicron APO Leica 35mm F2 Summicron Version 2 (8 elements) I shoot with my digial M 95% of the time (well I did only just recently purchased the M6) with my 50APO. I plan on using the 8 Elements more on the M6 for Black and White photography. So now that I am looking to add a wide angle lens, which of
  22. I'm not sure if this is documented anywhere, but if I remove the battery when the camera is on (switch at S, C or timer position) then the card will be formatted. I wonder if anyone observes the same?
  23. Hi Guys, Has anyone tried the newly released Handevision IBERIT series of lenses on your M camera? Just looking for some input on what looks to be a valuable alternative. Thanks. Robert E
  24. It was a hard catch. Had to try 8 or 9 times until "boom" - I got lucky! M240, Summicron 35mm, f/5.6, exposure time 55sec. Cheers, HP
  25. After many years of frequenting these forums, finally my first post. I joined the forum in 2012, have had an interest in Leica since that time, but always stepped around trying a Leica. At that time I owned a Canon 5DmkII and a bunch of L glass, all long since moved on since I moved whole heartedly into the Sony system with some flirtations with the Fuji X system. I still own and use both of those systems. But with the M10's release, the m240 prices started to dip into the territory where I felt it was worth shot, to finally scratch an itch which I've had for years and has never gone away.
