  • Since you mention small, I assume you are referring to Leica M lenses. The primary reason these lenses can be so small vs. say a DSLR lens is because they can be placed closer to the film plane, ...
  • I'd suggest download and re-install latest firmware version. I'd also suggest returning all camera settings to default. If those don't fix it, inquire with Leica. IMO one of the things you buy with ...
