By SrdjanSHi everyone,
I am quite new Leica user. Got M6 TTL few months ago. Love the camera big times. If I new how it's gonna be I would save my self a lot of money and time and buy one much earlier instead of going through all the cameras I've been till now.
But... and there is always one BUT... shutter on my Leica is quite loud. When I say loud I mean much louder than my friend M7. It's not like a major problem but I'm wondering if it means something (as if I should check the camera)? I live in Abu Dhabi and any kind of repair or even CLA is a bit of the pain in the neck, so I would like to start planning it as soon as possible.
Any advice is more than welcome.
By casalolaAs this is my first post, i would like to thank everybody for all these years reading from you.
I found this forum trying to solve all my doubts when i get an M9 in 2010... Broken sensors, glass selection, manual settings, inspirational photographers, all of you have been an important guide for me to improve...
i didn 't want to post anything till i feel myself i have something important to say or to ask for.
Next week i will get a M6ttl. I know that i will need many rolls trying to get my path, but i would like to know what combination of film and lens will you use if next week you were about to shoot your first one.
I have 4 lenses: a 2.35, a 2.90, a 3,4.12, and a 0,95.50...
i would like to try B&W film. And as it is an 0.85 M6, i have thougth in 50mm, and 200 iso film...
What would you do?
PS: Thanks in advance
By QuintaviusI bought a "like new" M6 TTL last week (serial number denotes a 1999 model) with only three rolls run through it and have fallen head over heels in love with it. Problem is, the 50mm Summarit that I've been using on my M8 will not mount correctly to it. The lens will fit into the mount but will not twist and lock. The issue is particularly strange in that the lens mounts and focuses perfectly on my M8 and Voigtlander R4a as well as my friends' M3's, M2's, and M4's. Furthermore, all lenses that I've used on my M6; 50mm Summilux, 50mm Summicron, 35mm Summicron, 75mm Summilux, an older collapsible 50mm and even my voigtlander, zeiss and konica lenses mount and focus perfectly.
I suppose I should mention that the Leica hood that I bought for the Summarit fit's a tad crooked (very slightly diagonal to the horizontal body lines on whatever camera I've mounted it to) but I can't imagine this having anything to do with the issue I'm having with the M6 as it has mounted just fine to other cameras, crooked hood or not. I know every company makes mistakes some times but this is really bugging me.
