Camera Firmware on my CL is 2.2. CL menu also shows the lens firmware which is 1.0 for my 55-135.

Thank you.   Does that mean I need to update my CL to 2.2?   How to do it?

It done, updated to 2.2 😃.  

Is there a viable improvement between the 2.2 vs 2.1?

Thank you.  The camera information showing:  Firmware 2.1

is that up to date already?  And how to "if needed updating the lens firmware"?   

That is an automatic process without user input. For camera firmware updates visit Leica’s website.

Came across this on page 12....

And this on page 14.......

I'm a bit concerned, I've got a new one being delivered today :unsure:

Welcome to Leica Dave, hit and miss.

I have not had any issue with new lenses but several M camera bodies have had to go back for various reasons, mainly sensor issues.

When you get your 55-135, enjoy it, do not look for faults. (touch wood) I have not had a single issue with my CL system, lenses or body.

An Internet Forum is a honeypot for problems. It is rare for it to reflect the real-life frequency.

Just took delivery of my brand spanking new 55-135, it's a beaut.

Guess what.....it makes a noise much like the others have described but..........it doesn't bother me one bit.

It sounds 'normal' as if it belongs, but for this thread I doubt I'd even have bothered about it.

It was sealed in the grey scratch box they all come in, so it's not been handled.

NOW...................lets go and take some snaps with it. :)

Camera problems and medical advice: two things not to take seriously on the web.

I was about to give an identical answer. There is no reason why being mounted on the camera should make a difference to the zoom mechanism, which is mechanical and not connected to the mount.

Go easy with me, I'm still a newbie really :unsure:

Is this strictly true? 

In 'P' and 'A' modes the shutter speed is connected to the zoom position and increases or decreases in accordance with the zoom length, there's clever :)

The shutterspeed changes because the max. aperture is variable due to the optical construction. Stop down to a fixed aperture and it will remain the same.
