Thanks for the earlier comments and likes everyone!

Ron, nice sunset series in Goderich. Also like the tonality on those B&W night scenes, feels like I'm in a film noir scene. Those University event scenes with the strobes are really excellent, lots of depth and layering in those shots. If you didn't mentioned it, it would be hard to tell that you used a 21mm FL. I think I need to save up for a 21SEM, probably next on my list after the Ultron 21.
Edward, excellent shots throughout the past few pages with the ZM lenses. As Ron said, colors are saturated and brings back memories of slides. I think I need to try a ZM50P soon. Love the contrast and sharpness of this lens.
Ryan, those shots of your son are superb! Love them all!
Michael, very nice B&W shots with the 35CronV1 and M3. Those 50Lux shots are also excellent.
Excellent set Luka. Nice to see you back. #3 & 5 are my favorites.
Allen, cool set and street shots!
Phil, excellent set with the Mono!
Justin, excellent shots with the 50Cron.

----
Been really busy with work, etc and apart from some casual test shots, I haven't had a chance to use my M240 at all. Hopefully I'll have some time in the next few weeks.

ZM21B. Notice color cast on right edge but this is not apparent on every shot.











DR is definitely improved over the M9 at higher ISOs.






The highlight clipping indicator doesn't seem to be accurate at the moment. When set to 0-255 clipping point, the LCD would not show clippings, but when I review the image using histogram, highlights are actually blown. Firmware definitely needs fine tuning.

Thanks Phil. The clipping setting was for the M240 not the Monochrom. On the Monochrom, I set to 0-255 and it works as intended.

Joe, I believe Tim Ashley commented on the highlight clipping warning not working when set to 255 on the M. He sets it at 253 and says it works properly then. BTW, I thought United retired their 737s back in 2009? Maybe these were inherited from Continental?

Phil & Bruno: really nice portraits!
Justin - 50 Cron looks great, hope you're enjoying it.
Edward - really nice tonality again. Maybe I didn't give the 85/4 enough of a chance when I tried it back when I first got the M9...

Yesterday we had a sunny day and 15C, so went out to a nearby reservoir and conservation area for a bit of an escape from the city:












M9 vs. Google Nexus 4, again





















M9 & 50 Lux ASPH except second with 28 Cron and last with 21 SEM.

Thank you Phil, Joe, Ron for your comments.

Bruno, 3 and 4 are my favourites.
Phil, very nice portrait.
Joe, excellent results with the 240. Do you think there is an improvement over the M9 regarding color shifts? I have the feeling the M9 cyan/magenta shift is just replaced by a red shift on the right side. You should definitely try the Planar. It is an amzing lens.
Ron, 2, 5 and 6 are my favourites. The Tele-Tessar has a very special rendering despite it's small maximum aperture. I should use it more often.

Ron, thanks for the info on the clippings. You already have a lot of M240 know how, all you need now is the camera The 737s could be from the Continental fleet. Even the Continental terminals have not changed at both Boston Logan and IAH Houston. Another excellent set, #2 and 6 are my favorites.

Thanks Edward. No idea on the color shift but apparently, the corner resolution has improved with the new micro lenses. Ill shoot some white walls and test it out later.

With the M240, I'm itchy for lenses again. Besides the ZM50P and the CV 21/1.8, I'm also looking at the 180 Telyt f/4 and the 60Macro-R lenses. Tilt shift could also be interesting.

Very nice set Robert!

Yikes with the ZM21 Biogon on M240. 1st shot uncoded, 2nd shot with 21 Elmarit pre-ASPH and 3rd with 21 Elmarit ASPH in camera profile. Metered with my Sekonic on a white wall, so I did not adjust exposure in LR4.

















Speculation? Microlenses improves resolution but does not deal with color cast? Anyone want to loan me their 21SEM for a comparitive test

Phil, nice portrait. Interesting flare in the second one. It reminded me of something I saw in a few of my shots with the 28 Cron. Here's an example:







Joe, not sure what to suggest... maybe Leica is still working on firmware? Does it look bad in actual use? It didn't seem that obvious in your airport image.

Great set Robert, difficult to give up that 18, eh?
Nice one Allen!

Thanks Ron,

Nice shot!, great light. Never seen that flare with the 28 cron. Did u use the hood?

Yesterday made it even harder to decide what lenses I gonna keep or sell.
I really like using the 18 and can't see myself walking around the same with the 17 TSE and a big canon body attached to it.
Would love the 17 TSE, and it would be very useful for some of those jobs. But it can't replace the 18 SE.

Beside that I planned to sell the 28 or 35 because both are really close together.
However yesterday I used both together (normally I only pick one) and they feel so different.
I love the 28's output and little vignetting. And the wide angle makes it really nice to use.
The 35 seems a little dull in comparing, but is such an easy lens to use.

So I keep the kit as it is for now No funds to add a 17 TSE, but I don't wanna cut into the leica's for that.

A few more with various lenses - 28Cron (@ f/2), CV35/2.5 and 90Tele-E.






















Here's a quick B&W conversion in bright midday sun. The files definitely holds more highlight details than the M9







---------------
Ron, see another sample with the ZM21 Biogon below. I think the color cast on the right can be corrected via post.







What I noticed are some false details (?) on the roof and bricks. This is approx 200% crop.

Nice work Dexter!
Phil, I like the treatment above.

Joe, nice images! I think if you're typically getting slight purplish color shift along the right edge, you might be able to minimize it for some images by pulling the purple hue slider to the left to shift the purple closer to blue. This will however affect other similar hues in the image, such as some blue skies, but I find it can be an effective quick fix.

As for the detail crop: seems like color moire mostly, though the second floor windows above the minivan are definitely off. My feeling from the few M files I've played with so far is the M tolerates more sharpening than the M9, so it might help to push the files a bit more. As well, for this type of scene, it might be beneficial to try f/11 or thereabouts where some diffraction might minimize the false details. With stronger conversion sharpening, you should still be able to pull off a good file.
