    Great Matt, i am sure you will enjoy it. I had to settle for M9 temporarity, as M lug issues have delayed the deliveries...

    HOWEVER, watch the WB issues. As you can see from Tim Ashley's new photo icon, Leica still has work to do in that area

    Re: Fun with the New Leica M

    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 1.1.0.2.







    Cheers, Matt

    On the M9, I code mine as an Elmarit 21 ASPH. Almost completely removes the vignetting and the colors very good. Only downside is that the camera won't report an aperture wider than 2.8.

    I did! On my way to Spokane today, so, it won't get much use. This weekend I'll be out with it. Keep meaning to connect in SLC. I'm sending someone else to the site/draw meetings. I need to go down to see the building in the next couple of months. I'll see if your available for coffee when I do.

    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.

    Yes but on Lightroom 4, it is predicting aperture all over the place, especially when shot wide open. For instance, on a f/1.4 or f/2 shot, it often shows an aperture of f/11 or f/16 and this is quite frequent. Not sure if anyone knows of a fix for LR?

    Matt,

    Congrats on the new M240 purchase, enjoy....but I already see a color issue. Man look at that gentleman's glasses. Camera turned the glass all orangy-red.

    Some have posted that Lightroom reads the 6 bit code of the 0.95 Noct as a1.2 or 1.4. lens. I wonder why it reports the lens as such, when it's simply reading the Leica code....unless it was transcribed wrong for this lens?

    re: Fun w/Digital M Images

    Zone focusing is not an art. It is easier than anything else *if* you can feel your lens/cam combo. Shoot with that feeling and definitely not with the hip.

    From a few hours ago.

    I'll get a couple (pun intended! :-) ) of pix this weekend. It works quite well. I have had it for years through several M lenses, but never mounted it.
    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.

    Re: Fun with the New Leica M

    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?

    Re: Fun with the New Leica M

    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.

    It is obvious that there is no connection between the lens aperture and the camera. What is reported in the EXIF (software) is an estimate but the meter reading used by the camera is accurate, even in this day and age. One of the strong points of a Leica cam.

    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.

    Great photos, all!

    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

    re: Fun w/Digital M Images

    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.

    Thoughts?

    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.

    Ashwin, great pics. Love the juxtaposition between the young love and older love shots.

    Here is mine. Of the few of your shots (of your wife) that I have seen here, I think this is the best.

    Do not ruin a good combo. Stick with it. Forget the Summilux 50 or Summarit 90 for good portraits. Of course, you can always buy them for the sake of having them.
