    Leica infinity focus with M240 and Lux 50 Asph

    I bought both pieces used - both are in excellent shape - but i'm finding some focus shifting issues - when I put the LUX on my M3 - it focuses to infinity no prob. on the M240 - the RF doesn't line up at infinity - so i'm guessing the M240 needs an alignment - is this a typical thing?

    Leica Lens Shootout - 1959 50 Summicron DR vs new Summilux 50 asph

    One was taken with the old DR lens, and the other taken with the new Summilux. There is a hint in one of the photos as to which is which (that I didn't intend to include but alas) These were shot with my M240 and the new SF40 flash... which is absolutely perfect on the 240 unlike that huge boat...

    Leica M6 classic light window....

    Seems like always - indoors, there is a DRASTIC difference in the shade of the RF box vs the rest of the VF

    Leica M6 classic light window....

    so - i'm noticing an issue with my M6 when trying to focus - the center rf box is really washed out - making contrast focusing nearly impossible.... its nowhere near as bad on my M3 - is this a problem with the camera that can be fixed or is my RF mirrors trashed?

    Leica Leica M to Canon EF adapter

    anyone know if this is possible???? I'm not looking to put a Leica M lens on a Canon body - but rather - I bought a BlackMagic 4k Cinema camera that has a EF lens mount... rather than now going after Canon glass - i'd rather mount my far superior M lenses - they wouldn't autofocus - but that...

    Leica DR sum micron w/o goggles

    I suspect that if you mod the lens for use on M9/M240- you can use the close range on the 240 in live view? And it will still couple to the rf in the standard position?

    Leica Flash for M240 and M6 Classic

    So - anyone know of a Flash that would be good on both the m240 and a M6 Classic? I have a Vivitar 283 that works on both my M3 and M6 (with a cable) but i'm selling the M3 and just want one flash for both the M6 and 240 - i probably won't do MUCH flash work - but i do have some stuff coming...

    Leica DR sum micron w/o goggles

    are the goggles just for framing, or do they affect how the RF works? basically - i'm wondering is it still possible to focus without the goggles? - even thought the framing might be off...

    Leica m240 vs m246

    so - I'm looking to buy a 240 - (i've owned 2 and sold both because I needed the cash) but before the end of the year, i need to make a purchase or two SO.... I wanted another 240, but read about the 246 - i have ZERO need for video and for live view - and would happily pay a little more for...

    Leica 240 adjustments

    what are the recommendations for sending my 240 in for "check up" i had one, sold it - regretted it - so i bought another - - while i'm positive i'm focusing properly - i just can't get razor sharp pictures as I used to - my lens is a Canadian V3 50cron - and that was fantastic with the...

    Leica telephoto for M240 with RF coupling

    so i grabbed a NIkon 70-300 f4 to use on my M240 with a cheapo nikon/leica adapter... works fine in Live View - will try it tonight at my son's soccer practice - - as for the 135 F2.8 - those ones with the Goggles - I assume it couples with the goggles on the 240? or should i look for a...

    Leica telephoto for M240 with RF coupling

    anyone know what the best option for telephoto with the m240 would be? beyond the 135? my oldest son starts football this week and I'd like to get some good closeups from the bleachers :D thanks A

    Leica sharper(sharpest) lenses for the M

    i'll look at those Zeiss lenses again - I'd love to get a 50/2 and a 35/2 - and then eventually something like a 90 for closeups....thanks for all the great advice

    Leica sharper(sharpest) lenses for the M

    ok, so i tried the 1973 50mm Summicron this weekend - and its about the same as the 1936 Zeiss Jena Sonnar 5cm I got from Brian - the 5cm 1.4 I actually like the Zeiss better as it seems to have less flare, and the colors are just great. ITs just a tad soft. I'd rather have razor sharpness and...

    Leica sharper(sharpest) lenses for the M

    what do you guys think of the 50 Summicron? I can get a pretty good deal on S/N 2610140 its made in Germany - but if i date it correctly - its 1979? thanks

    Leica sharper(sharpest) lenses for the M

    i've been thoroughly enjoying my 240 - but i've been shooting with vintage glass - which i also have been thoroughly enjoying... but i'd like to look into something that will get crisp images like that from my Nikon glass. i'd really like to not spend 3-4000$ if possible - so i'm curious what...

    Leica Showcase Nikkor 10.5cm f2.5

    i'm curious - using the M9 or M240 - with adapted Nikon Lenses (I have the 105 f2.5 and a 85 f2) would love to use them on my M9 - does the rangefinder focusing work properly - or do you have to measure - old school? :D thanks

    Leica short focus M lens without macro

    HI, are all the rangefinder lenses minimum focal length a meter? i have a visoflex 2, and i get some great macro shots - but that kinda defeats the purpose of a RF in my humble opinion. i get frustrated with my M9 from time to time with a 50mm on it because i often can't get close enough -...

    Leica M9 with SF58 and vintage lenses????

    Ok, so i'm in love with my M9 and i'm using it with a Zeiss 50 f1.4, as well as a summicron 35, and 90 but as you all know, the m9 isn't the greatest in low light situations - so i bought an SF58 to shoot photos of my kids and parties and stuff - and i'm finding it to be terribly...

    Leica Flash recommendation for M9

    I do ALOT of indoor shooting i've been playing with my SB900 Nikon flash - with great results only part of the time - they do not really communicate and the manual mode is not all that user friendly - so i'm wondering which Lecia or other flash would be a user friendly device for the M9...

    Leica Viewfinder magnifier?

    so - does the magnifier enlarge the entire viewfinder accurately? and is there any reason that one couldn't use a 1.4 magnifier when using a 35 or 50 mm lens? does the magnification throw off the focusing, or just simply make the VF bigger? Thanks
  32. aaronz28

    Leica Viewfinder magnifier?

    Yup. The Leica 1.25 and 1.4 are like 300$ And they are recommended for 50mm and up or 90mm and up (respecticely 1.25 and 1.4) Im more interested in the 1.4 for the sake of making the VF easier to see. But i use a 35 and 50 primarily

    Leica Viewfinder magnifier?

    ok who uses a vf magnifier - which one, and do they really make focusing easier by enlarging the images? Thanks

    Leica unload Nikon for M8.2/M9 or M240

    yeah thats what i was aiming for - just challenging in low light to see the contrast - which is why i think i'd benefit from a VF magnifier - and if i can sort out that (what appears to be) vertical shifting. the best way i can describe it - imagine you are bringing an image into focus as...

    Leica unload Nikon for M8.2/M9 or M240

    so I got the M9 - its really quite awesome - here she is with the Zeiss 50 f1.5 I got from Brian - sitting on the 8track case in my 1979 Coupe DeVille - only issues i discovered - 1) inside the view finder - one of the indicator lights (for the digital LED numbers) is out - so an 8...

    Leica unload Nikon for M8.2/M9 or M240

    question though - at one time I considered sending my M3 and lenses to Youxin Ye - but i was able to clean up the shutter ring myself and the camera has been great since - i can't pretend to know the differences mechanically between a film and digital cam, but is he a good source should I want...

    Leica unload Nikon for M8.2/M9 or M240

    yes - about 2/3 of what they are consistently selling for on eBay - i figure 1) a CLA can't possibly cost 1000 bucks to get it to top shape - and 2) even if it does - a CLA'ed M9 is still an honest 3k or more camera and i'll still have less than that into it - so either way - its an...

    Leica unload Nikon for M8.2/M9 or M240

    the guy said it just needs some cleaning on the jog wheel - and one of the number LCDs are out - so no real functionality issues - but for the price - i couldn't pass it up - i've never shot with a digital Leica and i've only had my M3 for a short time - so i'm kinda looking forward to playing...

    Leica unload Nikon for M8.2/M9 or M240

    well - i found and pulled the trigger on a used M9 that needs a little work - - i'm confused though - for me, no need for video, i'm not sure how effective live view would be with a manual focus (at least for me) but what other benefits of a mirrorless cam are there? cheers A

    Leica unload Nikon for M8.2/M9 or M240

    so i've pretty much ruled out the M8 - i want bigger than 10mp there is a pretty good deal locally for a m240 - about 1500 bucks more than i can pick up a use M9 is the difference between the 9 and 240 justified? cheers

    Leica unload Nikon for M8.2/M9 or M240

    thats helpful - although the technology is a bit beyond my pay grade lol - i'll say this - i prefer vinyl and 8tracks to CDs even though you could argue that CDs are sharper/cleaner/less noisy - since i don't shoot professionally, spending 5k on 240 is not gonna happen - and even 3k on a...
