Hey everyone, I just got my m2 off ebay and had a look through the viewfinder only to see 2 main very noticeable spots. I attached a picture and the one on the lower left looks much dimmer and looks like a dot and a hair almost? It's kind of light greyish and I think it's a particle or dust but I'm not quite sure. However, in the middle the speck seems much darker (basically black) and more prominent. Could this be separation or is it another speckle of dust (imo it doesn't seem like one). If this has happened to you or you know what it is, any input on how to fix or your thoughts would would be greatly appreciated! Also the shutter curtain on the front seems a little pushed forward and I can see the whole seam on it, is that normal? The curtain works 100% fine but I'm not sure if Im supposed to see the whole seam and overlap of the two curtains. On the back it stays slightly open by 1mm or so (didn't include a pic sorry)... should it cause a light leak? The camera was also recently CLA'd. Lastly, the viewfinder has some "gold specks" which I think is separation, but I hope i'm wrong. Please help if you can clarify, recommend a fix, or give any thoughts on ^^. Overall the camera seems amazing and none of the things I mentioned has really bothered me, but if I can learn more about them then it would be great. Thanks in advance, Ashley
Dear all, I just received X Vario purchased thru eBay a few days ago. I was super exited but due to work, I havent had the chance to fully test the camera. I work in office and would see clear sky on weekends only.. (yeah.. bummer!! :-P) When shooting clear sky, I would see these clusters of spots. I have contacted the buyer and he said that he has never experience these spots on any of the pictures he's taken. He sounded genuine and as a good seller, he offered full refund or AUD100 for repair. (which is I dont know how much yet) The cluster of spots will move with auto focus movement (when I move between the contrast area of tree/clouds) I have fallen in love with the camera and would like to keep it is the problem can be fixed easily.. (I live in Malaysia Kuala Lumpur.. and the nearest Leica service center is in Singapore). Now, I'd like to get advise with these photos if the X Vario is worth keeping? how much would Leica charge to have the sensor cleaned, presumably it is the dirt crud on the sensor? Would I be able to claim warranty? I've called Leica Malaysia but the answers are between 1-2 years only for X Vario? Is this true? I dont see any warranty card in the box except a test certificate. https://www.flickr.com/gp/zul-fawie/5071y2 Would these cluster of spots develop overnight or during shipping? is the ex-owner is telling me the truth?. it was shipped well in original box and bubbles. Appreciate your kind help as this is my first Leica. no cluster of spots if taken a faster aperture. Kind regards, SR
