By ashley12234Hey everyone,
I just got my m2 off ebay and had a look through the viewfinder only to see 2 main very noticeable spots. I attached a picture and the one on the lower left looks much dimmer and looks like a dot and a hair almost? It's kind of light greyish and I think it's a particle or dust but I'm not quite sure. However, in the middle the speck seems much darker (basically black) and more prominent. Could this be separation or is it another speckle of dust (imo it doesn't seem like one). If this has happened to you or you know what it is, any input on how to fix or your thoughts would would be greatly appreciated!
Also the shutter curtain on the front seems a little pushed forward and I can see the whole seam on it, is that normal? The curtain works 100% fine but I'm not sure if Im supposed to see the whole seam and overlap of the two curtains. On the back it stays slightly open by 1mm or so (didn't include a pic sorry)... should it cause a light leak? The camera was also recently CLA'd.
Lastly, the viewfinder has some "gold specks" which I think is separation, but I hope i'm wrong.
Please help if you can clarify, recommend a fix, or give any thoughts on ^^. Overall the camera seems amazing and none of the things I mentioned has really bothered me, but if I can learn more about them then it would be great.
Thanks in advance,

I want to buy the Leica X type 113 camera , but original electronic Leica viewfinders are really expensive.
Also it is impossible to use analogs from Olympus like for X1 and X2 models.
Anyone knows is it possible to use on this camera some kind of old types of optical viewfinders for example the 36 mm from Voigtlander or Leica?
Waiting for answers .
By ArneNorrisI'm planning to get a 28mm Summicron for my M-A. Of course the camera's viewfinder has frame lines for 28, but the lines are a little difficult to see at times if the hood is being used.
I'm thinking of adding a brightline finder for quick shooting. The older 28mm Leica finders are difficult to find in good shape. The Zeiss 25 28 finders are optically great, but can be fragile.
So the other option I'm considering is the current Leica 21mm Brightline finder with the brass housing. And then to use the frame lines in the finder meant for use on the M8. Given the 1.33 crop factor, my understanding is that these lines should correspond to a 28mm on a full frame camera.
Any experiences or thoughts?
By jaegerI just wanted to verify if focus shift is a design flaw on 24mm Lux or something it can be fixed by adjustment.
Since this lens has forgiving depth of field so the focus shift will only noticeable at the following conditions....
1) at close subjects that's less than 1.5 meters, please set yours at 0.7 meter on the barrel to test. (don't push all the way, some lenses might go below 0.7m that your viewfinder doesn't)
2) provided your lens and camera are perfectly calibrated, which supposed to be no issue wide open at f/1.4 at any range. The focus shift will happen started from half click increment. Greater than f/2.8 will stop seeing focus shift just simply becoz this lens has very wide DOF.
I use this lens for close subject intensively so please don't tell me how to use it or how you use it -- thank you in advance. I start noticing all my pictures are out of focus between 0.7 to 2m when aperture is set to f/2 plus or minus half stop. So I did a test at home to confirm my copy does have focus shift between f/1.8, f/2 and f/2.4 (I include half click). My lens @f/1.4 is perfect at any range, every click closing (not step) will result in two inches back focus, @f/2 is worst at about 5 inches total. Beyond that range like f/2.8 is fine, it starts to recover a wide range of DOF - some called it zone focusing.
If it's not a design flaw, then I need to speak to a Leica technician who is going to fix this lens. Thank you very much.
