  1. A woman waiting to welcome the first client at the opening of a yoga class (Southampton, England) - verbal permission given. I spotted this as I was walking down the street and asked for permission to photograph her (very unusual for me to ask!). I had the 24mm Elmarit-M f2.8 ASPH fitted, so I shot with what I had. Leica M240 + 24mm Elmarit-M f2.8 ASPH. 1/180 f16 @ 400iso. Gerry
  2. 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

  4. 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. So on Friday I received my used m240 from the Leica Miami store and finally after waiting all weekend my Voigtlander 35 f1.7 arrived. I have the Voigtlander 50 f1.5 arriving tomorrow. They aren't Leica glass, I know, but from everything I've read, they'll allow me to fully try the Leica experience, then maybe in another 5+ years I'll move to German L glass :-). As wonderful as my Sony A7rII is which I'll continue to use alongside the 240, there hasn't been a camera that I've been quite so excited to try, not since I moved from a Canon Rebel to a 5D 10 years ago.

  5. 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 the 2 would you recommend? I know many people say that it's best to pair a 28mm with a 50mm, and a 24mm with a 35mm; and that 28 would work better if I wish to shoot some street + landscape, whereas the 24mm will be better for pure landscape. But do both lenses render really differently? Is it that much more convenient knowing that u do not need an EVF for the Elmarit? Could the Elmar be used for some street photography as well? And since the 28mm is much newer, does it have something the other doesn't? I would really appreciate if those of you who own / have used both lens could let me know your thoughts on both lenses performance wise, and which would you pick if you were me. Thanks a bunch! Cheers, Jeffrey
  6. 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 under exposing. is this common? 3. The B&W Film simulation images from MP 240 are a bit more vintagy looking than M240 or bit warmer than M240? Please see the attached image for the LCD issue (maybe not a issue). ignore the metering in the image thats just me playing around. I really appreciate your assistance in validating the above. Glad to be a part of this community. - Donny
  7. 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?

  9. Hi all, I am an M9 user but of late I have been seriously thinking of getting an M240 (M-P) to use for landscapes. I am not concerned with the differences in file output but what I am interested in is any advice you can give with regard to using filters. With my M9s I find filter use (Grads, Polarisers) at best inconvenient at worst downright annoying I am thinking that with the Live View on the M240 it will be easy to judge effect of filters I'm even thinking of adding the EVF for more convenience. So any advice/comments on your experiences on the use of filters with the M240 would be greatly appreciated. I should add that for "serious" Landscapes I do have the Fujifilm GFX 50S Medium Format system the 240 would be for when I travel light but still want to be able to do landscapes as well as travel style.
  10. Another memory of high summer. #BodiamCastle #NationalTrust M240 with 21-35mm Vario Elmar-R.

  14. Hi, I have Hasselblad V series lenses and also a M240. I was thinking of buying 'Kipon Baveyes Ultra 0.7x Adapter for Hasselblad Medium Format Lens to Leica M Mount' so that I can use these lenses. Has anyone used this adapter, and what was the experiance? N.Shah
  15. Well, I did it. I found me a nice used M 240 for a good price. It was rated as a 7+, probably because of a gouge in the top plate near the left edge, but it looks in far nicer shape than my M9 —still without the sensor replacement— but then my M9 has been with me for four years of travel across the US, through the Ecuadorian Amazon, to Peru, across Turkey —it survived after I got hit by a car in Ankara— and around Spain. Took the 240 out this morning to take pics of the balloon festival. The deets: M240; VC Nokton 1.1 (shot at f8); postprocessed in Lightroom. Cheers, S

  17. Hi all, I have had an SL with 24-90 for 18 months. Lovely IQ but heavy combination so been using a couple of Zeiss ZM lenses (35/1.4 and just got the 50/2). Enjoy manual focus on the SL and the EVF is great....although it is still clearly an electronic VF, not optical The decision to go with the SL was difficult - I was torn between the SL or an M. At that point I had a full range of Fuji gear but wanted my first full frame digital and had always wanted a Leica. It really was a head vs heart debate - my head questioning the viability of a rangefinder mechanism today etc. Anyway....I am once again considering an M. Tried the M10 pre Xmas and produced some very pleasing images, with crisp focus. I am happy staying at 35 and 50mm but a bit concerned about manual focus on the M and (probably a bigger issue), not ‘seeing what you get’ in terms of image as I am used to EVF. The lack of info in the VF concerns me a bit I have come close recently to buying an M10P and 35 summicron but wonder if I am better going for a used M to start with - chance to prove to myself that I can get on ok with it. Could even use my existing ZM lenses initially. So any advice on used Ms pls? Cheapest entry is an M8 but I don’t want to go so cheap that I get an experience that puts me off....so an M240? Other option is to rent one for a week, anyone help me out with recommendation pls (UK)? Thanks everyone.

  21. Hello All, I shot MOV videos with my M-P 240 and some of the files got corrupted. I absolutely *MUST* restore these files. I tried the commonly found free techniques (QuickTime, VLC). (Unsurprisingly), Most of the paid software restoration tools out there already claimed that they don't take Leica in charge as each brand and model have their own MOV file structure. I have spent time with their support team in live chats confirming this. Based on my files sizes (ranging 640 MB to 4 GB), I still have hope. Data definitely exists, but it's only a matter of finding the right restoration technique of compatible software. Anyone ran into a similar ordeal? I am devastated... Thank you so kindly in advance for your help! Charles
