    Like the new Thumbs Up grip for M240

    Fits snugly and looks great. It gives a way better grip than the thumb-bump thing on the M240, which is too small and too slippery.

    I'm tempted to order the EVF for my M240 but not sure if I can give up the Thumbs Up!

    I have used and enjoyed the TU, but on the M240 I'd rather have the EVF.

    We need a Thumbie for the M-240.

    I find that a grip makes a real difference (I am using the RRS grip at the moment while I wait for Leica's multifunction grip). The gripe is great, and with Leica's 'thumb bump' I find the camera has excellent stability whilst maintaing handlability. Though I only occasionally use the EVF, it is a useful addition. I want to be able to quickly slot it in place when needed.

    Love my thumbie(s) - and with it I have the full benefit of the hot shoe.

    I used a Thumbie on my previous M9. Love it. I email him (off hand forget his name, a wonderful guy to deal with) about Thumbie for M. He told me that he had a design for it but no plan for turning it into production as he doesn't have the M to verify his design. Not sure if it's still the same now.

    Am I the only one that does not like the new thumbs up for M design? In fact if you look carefully it does not fit straight into the M hotshoe (though it is very tight) and I have worries that the torque may damage the hotshoe when a heavy lens like Noct is mounted. I have used quite many thumbs up before on my M9 which fit perfectly so this is kind of a let down.

    I contacted Tim who asked me to ship back the grip for examination, he found nothing wrong and shipped a replacement which unfortunately behaves the same.

    I have the thumbie on my M9 and it is great. Wish I could get one for the m240. Cannot give up the EV.

    When I do not need to use my EVF, I mount the TU along with the RRS grip for a great solid combination.

    I absolutely love the TU for M240. I have had it on since day one and it is superb. Tim is a great guy too.

    I haven't seen the thing but does it preserve the weather sealing on the EVF connector?

    It covers it even more like the plastic insert that comes with the M. There is rubber on the back of mine if I recall as it is not with me as I write this.

    A rubber strip / pad follows the entire back-side of the Thumbs Up. This keeps the Thumbs Up from the marring the M's painted finish. The rubber also covers the M 240's EVF port, probably as securely (in terms of weather resistance) as Leica's stock covering.
