M11 and non-Leica lenses
1

Lloyd Chambers really likes the M11, but has apparently discovered some unpleasant bugs with non-coded lenses.

In particular, if you mount such a lens the M11 completely hangs up, and will not be resuscitated until the lens is removed and replaced with a coded lens ie a Leica lens.

He found this with the CV 50mm APO-Lanthar, which just happens to be the lens I covet most.

One hears to never buy Model 1.0 of anything, so maybe the M11 is yet another illustration of this?
