By iriscaddisGreetings, I am doing some research on buying a used M. I am not a pro, just a devotee since my father used them, and I can now afford it.
I have 3 main questions surrounding purchasing a used Leica and I am thinking about buying a M-P (Typ 240).
1. Do reputable photo houses refurbish the camera's or send them to Leica for a certified-used designation?
2. Are there more reputable stories to purchase from? I am dubious about eBay. What about B&H in New York, Tamarkin seems overpriced with little inventory. Can anyone make recommendations?
3. What should I look for. Someone told at a photo store that Leica cannot provide the number of actuations. Is that right? I basically don't want to spend >$4000 on a something that has 100, 000 miles on it, so to speak.
Thank you all for your feedback.

By robsonjHi there,
I don’t think this is an issue with my Leica M, but given its new to me, I thought I would post incase anyone has seen such an issue that did turn out to be camera related...
On importing images to Lightroom from the sd card (compressed dng) I’ll see a couple of corrupt images (previews - from embedded preview image) in the library module. If I flip to the developer module, the raw file is perfectly fine. If I regenerate the preview, the corruption goes away. One would think it points to the camera saving a corrupt preview images with the dng, which is resolved on a preview regeneration in Lightroom.
The weird thing is if I do the same import to another computer... no corrupt previews. So that would point to an issue with the computer, but I only see this from the Leica shot images. 2 imports of a couple of hundred images each time usually results in 1- 2 corrupted images as described above. One thing worth noting is that I’m pretty sure the corrupt images where shot in continuous mode and shot at the point of a full buffer.
Very weird and easily remedied by generating the previews.
Any thoughts appreciated.
By pmconatyHey everyone. Normally I shoot raw and post process in lightroom. Occasionally I shoot raw+jpeg with vivid color. Sometimes the results with Vivid are spectacular. But most of the time the images come out far darker than what the lcd suggests. On top of that, when viewing the images in lightroom the blacks area almost always crushed. I love the color it produces, but not crazy about the contrast it introduces in the process.
A. I wish you had the ability to set the intensity of the effect in the menu (maybe something in the m10?)
B. Does anyone have any lightroom presets that come close to the vivid color settings? I've tried many times to get my raw files to look close to the vivid but with no luck
