Long story short, I've been a film Leica M shooter for a while now (M2), and I've been considering buying my first digital M. Since they are not even close as repairable as fully mechanical analog M's, I really don't want to spend that much money on a digital one.
So I came across a lady willing to sell me her M9 for a "bargain" (something like U$250), but as you guys can tell from the picture above, it comes with the dreaded corroded sensor.
I'm no professional and I want one of these to try them out, since I've never truly used one.
My question is: how's the situation of this one in particular, can it be used in anyway in this condition? Is it worth it for the price? And finally, is the 1000U$ dollars repair worth in my situation?
I'll be very happy with any contributions.
By boojumI have an M240 with the Epson viewfinder which turns the camera into a virtual SLR. And when that happens I can use any lens which can be adapted to this camera. Currently I use a Pentax 50mm f/1.4 which is not RF compatible but with the VF it works just fine. There are many old K mount zooms and macro zooms available to very attractive prices which would also work just fine. So, my question is, has anyone on the board tried this? And how did it work if it has been tried?
There is an abundance of new glass out there for Leicas and it is very good and the prices are very attractive. With that electronic viewfinder a lot of old glass is usable, too.
By JapanFotoHi All,
I am considering buying a Zeiss 35mm lens for my M6 with 0.85 viewfinder.
I can not really decide between the 2.8 and the 2.0 version. I would like to have the extra stop of light – but not sure if this would block the view- or rangefinder window.
The little bit more money isn’t the problem – has anyone an Idea of the blockage with and without lens hood ?
Thanks for thoughts and advice
I recently bought my dream camera, a Leica IIIf!
The unit came with a VIOHH Universal Viewfinder and noticed that the framing is crooked (see attached image). Has anyone seen this issue before, or know how to troubleshoot?
Thanks in advance!
