Who Already Has one?

Recommended Posts

HI There

It seems that some cameras have actually shipped - a month early!

 

It would be interesting to know who the lucky recipients might be, which country they're in - and which firmware they are using.

 

All the best

Jono

Got mine on Friday 25/4 in Manchester, England.

 

Firmware 1.0 on the camera, fresh out of the box. I got the 23mm Summicron and the Visoflex too.

 

I am still smiling widely

Wow that's great care to share where from and if they had any more.

The acid test will be the availability of the M to T adapter. It took Leica 15 months from announcement to get the R to M adapter out and since I have decided to buy just the body for now, it will be a paper-weight until the lens adapter arrives.

 

It would be good to think Leica have turned over a new leaf but, of course, the M to T adapter has some electronics in it which could yet delay it.

I agree. I asked the same question in this thread I started. Some seem to think it is available now.

It came from Stephens in The Barton Arcade. I think he got just the one in the delivery.

You could be right, however, it seems every dealer I know already has had the adapter for demo which was not the case with the R-M adapter until 15 months had passed.

If it were true (cross fingers...) that would be great news and would make more actractive the set.

 

Cheers,

Leica must be still tweaking their supply chain. Now they are shipping ahead of schedule.

 

 

I swear, I never thought I'd live to see this. Hah.

When, weeks ago, people surmised we would have to wait a couple of months for the camera to ship, I claimed that the T would be available around the time of the announcement. I guess nobody believed me …

its smooth, but very expensive if compared with the Sony!!!

It's not surprising; there was a good supply of XV cameras at the launch date so why not for the 'T' as well. M240 camera production is flowing too. Is the Wetzlar factory operational?

 

I'd like to know which other 'T' prime lenses are due to be launched. I guess a macro is inevitable and if so it will be very expensive.

HI Michael

It's not supposed to ship until the 25th May (look at the press releases) - and shouldn't have - some lucky people have theirs early, I don't think it was intentional - of course, you can check it out.

 

All the best

Jono besides you and other beta testers who have one to use it looks like maybe less than 10 have been sold early and most are in the UK.
