    Really disappointing that they are using the same half-frame box as the M8.

    I could have done a better unpacking video than that! Have Solms send me a Steel M9 and I'll show you!

    thanks guy! working on it. so far i am impressed with the m9+35summarit, m9+90summicron. the 15mm CV M-mount generates a lot of cyan fringing and is -with FM 0.922 - unusable.
    tomorrow i shall get the 50 lux and the 24 lux...

    Great Peter I think a lot of folks are wondering about vignetting and my guess is you need coded lenses for sure or does it have a lens manual setting in the menu.

    Also I need to know something . Can you tell me if you hit the info button the working ISO comes up or not in your production unit.

    guy,
    it has a manual lens selection option, but only for leica lenses. i think it only corrects vignetting but not cyan drift.
    no working iso on the info button. p

    Thanks Peter that last line was what I was looking for. They need to change that

    Peter with the 15mm CV you should be able to input the Tri-elmar or the WATE as we call it.
