I just received a brand new Leica M 240. One of the things I notice is that the spit image focusing through the view finder, at least for me, is not nearly as clear as my M9 or my MM. That is to say, that one of the two images created in the spit image section of the view finder is very clear, while the other is very faint. This makes focusing, particularly in low light situations less effective. Has anyone else experienced this? Or do I, perhaps, have a defective model? I hope this is not a redundant question. Your thoughts are appreciated.
I recently purchased a 21mm Summilux and a Brightline Finder 12024 to accompany it. When I slide the finder into the hotshoe on my M10 it feels remarkably loose and unstable, so much so that if the camera is tipped it will slide out. This can't be right. Investigating further I tried the same viewfinder on my M9-P and it fits securely, same when I try it on an M4 body. There are raised bars under the edges of the M9 hotshoe (see attached photos) and similarly on the M4 they seem to have springs under bars to use light pressure to hold things in place. Did something fall off my M10 without my noticing? On a stock m10 is the center area with the pin cluster flush with the rest of the hotshoe or is that area in the center raised up a bit from the bare metal? All other hotshoe items that I use have pin locks so nothing else falls out. I had a thumbs-up grip that went in the hot shoe that was too loose as well. I had assumed it was the grip bring too small, not that something was missing from my camera. Can anyone confirm this behavior or help me to understand what I may be missing? I I can use a small bit of gaffer's tape to fill in the loose area when using the viefinder on the the M10 but that hardly seems like the best solution. M9 hotshoe with raised pressure bars: M10, same area: M10 Top Down: M10 Straight in, note slightly raised center pin cluster. Is there a surrounding plate that is missing on my hotshoe?:
