  • Thank for posting your inquiry here.  I would like to offer my experiences as well. For me, photography is a creative outlet and hobby.  I enjoy capturing pictures of whatever catches my eye.  I ...
  • I concur that the EVF is very useful with the f/0.95 depth of field.  Might I offer up an alternative in any of the live-view M240 series cameras?  M240, M-P240, M246 all have this feature.  You ...
  • A possible explanation is a memory card that is marginally out of spec to the camera, or vice versa.  I would try another card, although a finicky camera can be a pain too.  Perhaps a swap, ...
  • 35/1.4 is a much better environmental portrait focal length and stop. 28/2.8 would be an excellent landscape lens, also quite affordable. If you're not queasy about buying used, or have a good ...
  • I see you list the M240 in your prior gear list.  Why did you sell it?  I really don't want to know your personal business, but if you sold it because it didn't provide a function or experience ...
  • Perhaps the most powerful statement I've read regarding photography this year. Eric
  • If you're really tired of the RX1.1, I would swap for the M3 if it is a really well sorted out copy.  You're right on the edge of being on the losing side for the trade unless the M3 comes with a ...
  • Replied in Very nicely done
    Thank you for posting the link.  I especially enjoyed the numerous photos attached to the article.  I see I have some catching up to do with Seal before I get the VIP treatment, with his 35+ Leica ...
  • I also owned an X1 and had the battery retaining clip break loose.  One relatively quick trip to NJ, and the camera was returned repaired for free, although they did swap my lens cap for one with ...
  • Thank you for the link to the prior discussions.  A little intellectual back-and-forth helps to define a better concept. I was thinking the Leicavit trigger vs a crank on the side of a Rolleiflex, ...
  • So, I had an idea.  Remember the old Leicavit film winding devices?  These replaced the bottom plate of your M and had a collapsible lever that was used to advance the film.  They are a neat ...
  • i recently purchase the 90/2.4 from Leica by Boris and was well-pleased.  Remember to budget for import duties, just in case. Eric
  • Replied in 28/2.8/ASPH II
    I have the new and the old lens and the new lens seems sharper in the corners than the old one. Eric
  • One of the coolest parts of the White editions is they come with a white leather strap and a white leather lens case. Unfortunately, the digital limited editions by Leica have had mixed results in ...
  • The Oberwerth is definitely handsome, but I am more of a Fogg fan myself. The chrome-plated closures on the front could scratch a camera body if I slung both from the same shoulder. The brass ...
  • The advice of a rental is excellent. Rangefinders are their own breed, and the M series shares a great deal of commonality from 1954 to date.  If you want digital, the M9/ME or M240 series are ...
  • I picked mine up as part of the December wave, and used it for a week in Orlando.  I concur with your observations that the classic meter underexposes when compared with the M9, or the M6, M7, MP, ...
  • The 28/2.8/ASPH is one of my favorite vacationing lenses.  I like to capture entire scenes, and the 28mm focal length works well for that.  It does miss out on some telephoto-centric image ...
  • I inquired at the Leica Store Los Angeles yesterday afternoon and they have not yet received any.  I also am following ebay to see if any are listed as an indication of initial shipments, and none ...
