  • Previously abandoned 1880s vintage row houses refurbished for a second life as rental units in Springfield, Massachusetts. Leica M240 / Voigtlander Ultron 35mm f1.7 LTM Lens.
  • Leica M240 / Summicron-M 2.0/50mm V3
  • I have the Summicron 2/50mm V5 that I use with my M240 and M262. When I was researching the different 50mm Summicrons, several reviewers said that optically, the V4 and V5 are identical. The ...
  • Replied in Celebrities
    I was sitting in the dining room of a small pizzeria and restaurant in town waiting for a take-out order. The owner used to have two much larger restaurants but decided to downsize. However, he ...
  • Replied in Circa 1765
    This colonial home was built in Suffield, Connecticut by David Hanchett in 1765 prior to his marriage to Deborah Sheldon in October of that year. Leica M262 / Voigtlander Ultron 1.7/35mm LTM V1
  • According to the lens Code List on LaVida Leica it should be 11874 (Black), 11883 (Silver), 011101 (6-Bit code), for the Voigtlander Nokton 40mm f1.4, which is the same code for the Summilux-M ...
  • As others have said, your Leica is a specialized digital computer and like any other computer will get warm. Panasonic actually has an optional fan that fits onto the back of the GH6 to prevent ...
  • Leica M240 / Voigtlander Ultron 1.7/35mm LTM Lens Version 1
  • The M9 corrosion issue was a true nightmare for Leica and like so much more surrounding Leica creates all sorts of rumors and mythes. I've heard that the glass on the M9 corroded because of the ...
  • I had the M8 and M9 both and the Leica rumor mill was always implying that the Kodak CCD sensors in both were designed to emulate Kodachrome, something never confirmed by Leica or Kodak. I shot a ...
  • Replied in M10M vs M246
    I have an M240 and an M262 and like the OP, every once in a while, I have an M246 GAS attack. But I mostly shoot color jpegs and if I think an image would be better in B&W, I make a copy and ...
  • Replied in The Watcher...
    Leica M240 / Summicron 2/50mm Type 3
  • I have a Summitar 5cm f2 Collapsable that I bought earlier this year that I use on my M240 and M262. I'm old as dirt and based on the serial number of the Summitar, it was manufactured in 1942, ...
  • I agree with JD that normally a bad card would be the most likely culprit, but you have reformatted all of your cards, used each one with both batteries, and the problem persists, so it seems like ...
  • Replied in Sun Flare
    Taken in strong mid-day sun above the left of the photo. Still, this 84 year old lens handled the sun flare pretty well. Leica M240 / Summitar 2.0/5cm Collapsable
  • From the review here on DPReview and a couple of video reviews already up on YouTube, it sounds like they're selling what is mostly an MP with a body designed to look mostly like an M6. The fact ...
  • Besides their main store in Manhattan, the have the NJ warehouse and another warehouse in Brooklyn. I have received both used and new items from all three.
  • Replied in Hilltop Barn
    Leica M262 / Summicron-M 2/50mm Type 5
  • No SL, but I've purchased a number of the items from them in the past with no problems. I've also bought from Adorama, KEH, MPB, and Used Photo Pro. All the time, B&H, Adorama, and KEH change their ...
  • Replied in Inside Mawaga
    Took me 10 years to get past the normally locked gate to this sports club, only to find out it looks the same on the inside as it does from the outside. Leica M262 / Summicron-M 2.0/50mm Type 5
