If you are undecided about silver or black, take a card to visit each dealer and shoot a few tests with the same lens on each body.   My experience suggests that it is unlikely both bodies have the same RF calibration. So you might find that one body gives you actual images preferable over the other. That finding could be your deciding point.   Someone who lives near Frankfurt will likely say, oh send any body to Wetzlar and they can match it to your lens. True. But what if you can get it ri

I have a silver M-P 240. Most of my lenses are black. The combination looks great.

that price is insane,I can get brand new one around 3500 euro

How and where? Are you talking about a China made Leica replica? Part of the fact that we are paying hose huge Euros is because that the cameras are made in Germany and stands for quality.

 

I would be interested to know more on how you could get a new one for 3500 Euros? I doubt the Leica M would sell for that price even if a new M is on the horizon!

4 043.763 U.S  = € 3598,-  ?  For a new M 240 with 2 years warrenty by Leica? That's very cheap. Could you please give me a website were I can buy the  M 240?   And please don't say that we are stupid! The CIA does not want to be called stupid....:

So when we could buy a brand new M240 for 4000 Euros, we should be stupid to buy it for well over 6000 Euros. @missme: we are definitely missing something. Could you let us know where you got your Leica M240 for 3500 Euros, brand new, unboxed, with a 2 year Leica warranty? Let me not remain stupid!

According to http://buynrent.net/t-Leica-M-240-silver-digital-rangefinder-camera, the price in China is 36000 rmb, or 4800€. No idea whether or not that is accurate though....

Hi Simon,

 

€4800,- is still a little bit more than € 3500,-  And welcome to the forum Missme. ...

That was exactly the amount that I'm going to pay here in Germany for a Leica M that comes with the 2 year Leica warranty.

 

@Missme.... yes we miss you! Could you post the link to the online shop where we could get a brand new Leica M 240, with a 2 year warranty for 3500 Euros equivalent?

      An SF 40 I purchased used is unreliable. It will no longer flash after a few days of light use - died during an afternoon Thanksgiving celebration. Fortunately, I had a Canon EOS 5D mk IV and 430EX III-RT flash to use for flash pictures. But it was very frustrating that the M10 and its TTL flash didn't keep working.   Everything lights up and the head zooms manually, but no flash, either from an M10's trigger or the open flash button (the LED ready light). Changed batteries to a freshly-charged set when I got home - still doesn't flash, even though the LEDs light up   So bottom line - SF 40 may NOT be up to professional standards of durability, and you may want to avoid it for TTL flash with Leica. Admittedly this flash was (lightly) used, but it's still disappointing. Seems like the company with the best optics in the world has only unreliable TTL flash.   I used to use a Metz 32MZ-3 / SCA 3501 for TTL flash with an M6 TTL and M7. It worked great on those cameras, but doesn't work with the M10 (or my old M8). And used Canon 430EX version 1 speedlites have been rock-solid on many commercial shoots. Just seems like Leica can't get its flash act together. 

      *** Does anyone have any suggestions for a reliable TTL flash for the M10? ***
