    Leica Been "insanely busy" with work.

    And not enough time for photography... Been focusing on some new projects that I've been asked to take on, and the project that I've worked on for 15 years now still needs attention. If there is a pony in here- I still use FORTRAN, Assembly, DOS and Wordstar -for almost 40 years- and get asked...

    Leica Is the M9 sensor replacement same as sensor in M240?

    I am still waiting to get back my M9 from Leica NJ, and I wonder how the images will be like with the replacement sensor. Has anyone here seen major differences in their M9 after getting a new sensor?

    Leica Showcase Minolta 5cm F1.8, Leica Thread Mount

    This lens is a 6 element in 5 group Double-Gauss, the same as my Minolta Hi-Matic 9 that I bought in 1969. That was a lot of lawns. First shot with it- could see on the back of the M9 screen that it rendered like the lens on my Hi-Matic. I'm happy. The salesman at K-Mart convinced me that the...
