Lost the file. It was of a wall. So not a big loss.

Hey! Walls have feelings too!

I bet it was a beautiful brick wall, with fine, old, slightly crumbling bricks ... it has separated two households for over 120 years, and it has some stories to tell -- neighbours chatting over the wall, rain pelting down, a skylark sheltering from a windy day ...

All this was captured by your image but is now lost to the ether ..

Perhaps one day we will find all these missing images, they simply fell through a timespace portal and now lie on a random SD card somewhere in the future ...

I'm adding Updating user profiles to my tips below (tip 7). The tips are purely empirical as usual since 2002 so don’t feel compelled to follow them. About tip 7, camera becoming unresponsive and rear screen going black have been reported under firmware 2.1.1 in case of shots in quick succession. Happened to me once too so i updated my user profiles and since then i got no more issues. About tip 4, Leica has found a fix apparently but i keep it in my list given that some LUF members are keeping an old firmware. All advices are welcome for improving the list if needed.
1. Switching camera off before mounting or removing a coded lens or adapter.
2. Switching camera off before mounting or removing the Visoflex 2.
3. Formatting memory cards with SD Card Formatter before inserting them in the camera.
4. Refraining from selecting lens detection auto for uncoded lenses.
5. Setting auto review to shutter button pressed.
6. Setting dust protection to off when using uncoded lenses.
7. Updating user profiles after 2.1.1 firmware update.

I have no freeze issues with my M11. However, it happened a lot with my M10-R and M11-p. I bought my M11 at the Leica Store Berlin, and the other two were ordered directly online, which is problematic. I eventually sold the M10-R but kept the M11-p.

The files from the M11-p were randomly corrupted no matter how I changed different SD cards (different brands and types I, II) or updated the firmware. It is confirmed that Leica's quality control is definitely on another level.

I've just received my Hasselblad 907x 100c today, bought online as well, and there are 0 issues at the moment.

That is a real bummer. Really puts a damper on my enthusiasm for getting another M11 variant.
