I'm interested in hearing from anyone whose made the move from an M9/M-E to a 262.
How are you feeling about your decision?
I've recently replaced the sensor in my M-E, which included a full CLA from Leica, NJ. It feels like a new camera, but I'm also reminded of the only gripe I've ever really had about it: Limited ISO performance. I max out at 1200, but even that can turn a Summer afternoon into a snowy day in B/W. I'd love to (when necessary) shoot between 1600 & 3200 without the resulting photograph becoming an exploration in Pointillism.
In addition, weather sealing and the larger sensor seem like a plus.
Let the CCD vs CMOS debate begin!
So good people...
What say you?
By Mr.PrimeI realized, after using an M3 since Christmas (my foray into the Leica world) that I would also like a digital version. Yesterday I lost an M-D on ebay, it went for US$4,100 and I had bid $4,000. Looking around there just aren’t any available for good prices. I was thinking about the possibility of getting an M 240 / 262 and converting it to an M-D myself by removing the screen and buttons and replacing the leather covering. Given falling prices on the M10 and stupid prices on the M10D that might be a better starting point but there likely isn’t much of a difference in the work required. No doubt there’s a bit more work involved than I’ve alluded to but I’m a fairly handy kind of guy (I design and build my own hi-fi electronics and speakers for example) and thought perhaps somebody else in a similar predicament to myself may have done something similar ???
By horosuI am selling here a rare beauty: the 35/2 Summicron-M pre-asph silver chromed.
The lens has been bought from RedDot Cameras in the UK (Invoice included) and subsequently sent to Leica for 6-bit coding, tightening of the aperture detents and general inspection (Invoice included). It feels, operates and looks pristine. There isn't a single paint blemish, or any other imperfections on this lens.
It comes with the original package, with all the papers. The buyer gets:
1) The lens
2) 12524 rectangular lens hood (perfect)
3) Leather lens keeper
4) Warranty card
5) The RedDot Cameras invoice
6) The Leica repair invoice& certificate
The price includes EU-wide shipping by UPS Standard. For other shipping options or destinations extra charges will apply.
By kentishrevI love my M-D and the ISO control on the back. There are the usual numbers - 200, 400, 800, 1600, etc., and there are two stop points between each one so, in theory, one can graduate between the known values. I like this control.
I see the M10-D uses the ‘rewind’ ISO control. Does that too have 2 stops between each labelled value? Or is there a lower level of control on the M10-D?
