Joe, I love the shot of your son taking picture. I see the same backhoe, wood railroad, and Eames chair at my home I wonder other than these and Leica rangefinder, what else we are in common. I really like that 21mm VC as well, especially after see Ron's review. The key is have decent copy. Make sure you test it at infinity and check all corner

I send off my M9 and 50lux ASPH today to NJ, I will see what they say about my 50lux. I instruct them to give me a quote for cosmetic fixing.

So no more M for at least two month I think.

Here are few images took during Disney weekend two weeks ago.

Joe - really nice results from that 21 Ultron! Yes, some of my images have a slight color cast. As you know, the WB rendering is a bit off with the M240 and hopefully the next firmware update will fix it.
Michael - It will be a long wait for you to get your lux back. At least you have all that R glass to play with on your Nikon!

A few more with M240 and a walkabout downtown at lunch. I tried out the CV15 and forgot how wiiiiide 15 is on full frame. Major distortion and ton's of magenta color shift on the edges. I tried out Cornerfix for the first time and got it fairly close....

Nice shots Gary. Do you have the 15 coded or set up in the body?

Cal - No, I did not set up a lens profile in camera for the CV15. Not sure which one I would choose. Would this choice have an effect on the color shift or just vignetting?

Ryan - I love that last shot of your son. Very funny.

I used to suscribe the Sean Reid's site and I know he tests different codes. I'm pretty sure the CV15 was best coded as a Tri-Elmar @ 16mm, but I'm not sure how effective the coding is. (Tri -Elmar is 010000, so only one black mark should do the trick)

I believe so, but it's been a while since I've been a subscriber so my memory might be faulty.

Thanks Joakim, Michael, Gary, Ryan

Michael, nice shot of your son with the 50Lux. I like the pose on the #1 35CronV1 shot, makes it look really artsy. I would really like to get my hands on a Eames lounge chair, but probably have to wait till I get over Leica fever Hope your M9 and 50Lux returns soon. Another thing we have in common - I also have to send something to Leica NJ this week and its brand new Maybe our cameras will end up on a date over there?

Gary, those CV15 and 21SEM shots are excellent. #3 is my favorite from this set. Good to know about the CV15 color cast, thanks.

Ryan, both those 35Cron and 21Lux shots are excellent. Looks like he's having fun, won't be long till you can share your gear with him too

Allen, nice environmental portrait!

-----
Probably my last post with the M240 for sometime. No, I'm not selling it. Got an email this morning from Solms that my camera serial # is affected by the strap lug fiasco and has to go back to NJ as a precaution.

90 Tele-E. #1,3 & 4 @ f/2.8. LR 4 seems to be picking an aperture one stop down on many shots. I really like the tilt EVF for these type of shots where I can preview focus & DOF and use the histogram to meter.

Well I'm in the same boat as Joe. The good news is that you all will get a break from me posting so many M240 pics! Bad news is my camera is being returned to get the lugs checked. They seem secure to me but why risk it I suppose....

Dear Leica M Customer,

We are aware of the fact that a few of the Leica M (Typ 240) cameras shipped before April 5, 2013, experienced loose carrying strap eyelets. We identified that this was caused by an assembly fault that occurred in the Leica M (Typ 240) production line. Products potentially affected only concern Leica M (Typ 240) cameras shipped prior to April 5, 2013. After identifying what happened, we fixed the production issue immediately. Rest assured that the issue has been completely resolved and corrected. We are deeply sorry that this occurred.

Having crosschecked the camera’s serial number, we regret to inform you that your camera 444XXXX is affected.

In order to coordinate the precautionary check of your camera, we invite you to contact your local Leica Subsidiary. To find your corresponding partner please have a look at our homepage

We apologize for the inconvenience.

Well, Gary and Joe, sorry to hear about the strap lugs issue with your cameras. They will go on a trip to Solms but the good news is that it only takes 48 hours to repair them. I'm very happy that I didn't succumb to the temptation of being an early bird.

Edward, I'll take the early bird when it comes to digital Leicas. In my experience, even the later arriving birds are never immune from flights back to Solms

Camera has to go back to Solms for the fix, all prepaid and insured by Leica. 24-48h in Solms but for us in the US, it has to go to Leica NJ and they in turn, they will send it to Solms. So all in, it would probably take approx 2 weeks. Not too bad I guess.

That's rough having to part with it so soon after getting it. I'm guessing this is why there seems to be a lull in the deliveries. Gary, did they cover shipping to NJ? Or does it go through TCS?

Edward - that first one is really nice.

Ryan - TCS doesn't get involved. I contacted Leica NJ this morning and they already dropped off a UPS box & label at my house. I package it up and drop it off at a UPS outlet. It then is shipped to NJ and then on to Solms. I am thinking it may take 3 weeks - hopefully less. I asked for a loaner from NJ just for fun - they said no.

Allen, a nice portrait. you capture the light
Edward, That is a cool shot. Nice compose.

Since my M9 will be gone for a while. I dig some shots from Hangzhou.

Weather was bad at the time. all by 50cron rigid.

Xihu lake under rain, what a beautiful city, I miss it.
