Gentlemen: Thanks! Just brought it home a couple of hours ago. It's a heavy beast.
Here's the first out of the box, OOC, jpegs. Imported into LR4 and uploaded to Zenfolio. No other action. I like what I see, so far. Firmware 188.8.131.52.
Cheers, and say hi to Mimi.
Congrats Matt, enjoy your M240!
Mine just returned from Solms for the lug fix. Here's one where the EVF was useful. Rangefinder purist might scoff at me and prefer to use a ruler to focus, but I'll gladly use technology when available
Nikkor SC 5cm f/1.4 ltm at approx 16 inches.

You use the adapter ring to RF focus, however the image isnt necessarily in focus till you match the distance setting on the lens to the adapter mark. just waht the Alpa system does with a laser ranger.
TMI? :-) but you may have seen other adapters like this. Not as acurate as a sliding back but a good way to cross platform focus a lens.

Gary, nice catch! How are you finding the M240 over the previous Ms?
Thanks Dave! I skipped a generation and went from M8 to M240. There is a huge difference in every way between these two camera's. Pretty much everything is an improvement. I am so happy I made the switch and the M240 is an amazing camera. Are you thinking of picking one up?

Aperture values in EXIF are always estimates, based on the meter reading off the shutter and through the second meter window next to the red dot.
There is no coupling of aperture ring to camera and no electronic communication between lens and body at all, I thought this was obvious.

Leica MM, M Rokkor 28/2.8, The Hague
If the gear selection sounds boring, I can't help it. This is the best combo for me so far. I have decide against the Leica Summicron 28mm since that is bigger and offers no advantage over the old Rokkor. In fact, the Rokkor is better on the MM than the Summicron.

M.Alkhamis - really striking - especially liked the man sitting on the invisible chair
Ashwin - loved these, especially the elderly couple meeting in the street and the smiling couple at the end

Early morning spontaneous grab-shot of SWAMLP (She Who Approves My Leica Purchases ).
M9, 50mm Summicron V4
I like the 90 Elmarit-M for more organized portraits, but I keep grabbing the 50mm Summicron for the quick available light shots. As is the case here, these are not the sharpest (ISO at 320, f/2.8, 1/45 s.) nor are they the best technically (pose, expression, not quite looking into the lens) - but I love taking these.
I keep wondering whether I should get a 50mm Summilux ASPH for these instead.... I had one lined up a week ago, but it fell through. I am sooooo on the fence on this.

Fritz, it's Doug from the Cafe, in case you didn't know my identity here. lol. It seems we both have drifted into the lighter side of Leica, from the Dark side of Nikon. But I am keeping 1 foot planted in each for now.
Your wife, lovely as ever. She seemed a little tense in this shot. get her to loosen up a bit, heh.
I say get whatever glass you can that you enjoy. A 50 lux is a great lens to have, IMO. For many people, it becomes their favorite lens. To me, a 35 and 50 lux are the two most important lenses that I recently acquired. I did have a nice 35 cron, which I sold, great lens.
I say go for it.
