Zhangyue, wow, another spectacular set. I was kind of suspecting VSCO I downloaded it a couple of months ago, but got confused by so many options. I'm the kind of person who prefers to be limited in choices

Mike, Superb portrait!

p831
Andrew, superb set from Cyprus!!
liyuanayu, welcome, very nice!
Michael, wonderful set again! I love the PP'ing to your images now

p832
Paul, nice images with the Nocti Nikkor!
Andrew, great images!!! Love this set
Gary, thank you for the images. Wonderful compositions and imagination!
Michael, love your new style of images! Very nice
Mike, very powerful portrait!!!

If I have left any one out, my over sight!!

I have just purchased the Oly VF-2 for the M240, and I never thought I would like a EVF. This is such a great option to have aside from the RF way of composition, and particularly for close portrait work!! Now having the EVF andLV is a great backup while traveling, should the RF drift for any reason.

I have a question...

I'll soon be getting a Summitar Collapsible 50/2.0 LTM from a friend.
Has anyone used this on M240?

I ask because there is a danger of damaging the camera when the lens is collapsed on M9.

Charles, congrats on your VF. I need to get one of those sometime in the future when they finally start shipping the R - M adapters.

This is another shot from my usual hiking trail. I had posted this earlier but this time the waterfalls had better flows from the recent rain.

Paul I have one and don't even collapse into body of M, it works great on my MM but on M I have sharpness and low contrast haze issues wide open, stopped down it is sharp and the contrast improves somewhat. I will use it on my MM but do not plan on using it on my M

BTW works great on MM for that great classic leica rendering look

I dont have funds to buy MM at the moment....

I guess I have to use the lens as a non-collapsible lens.

Edward, you don't need any help from preset, your image as good as they are! I always enjoy your images' color。I mainly play and excise different idea, VSCO make it handy.
Charles, congratulation about EVF, I bet it will help for MFD portrait and wide angle shot.
Thank you for comments!
rirakuma, beautiful color! Which lens? What r lens you plan to use on M?

Thanks Zhangyue! It was taken with the WATE. I'm going to use an 80-200 vario elmar when I get the adapter, I think it will be really neat for landscapes.

Does anyone have any comments about Adapters on the M for R lenses? Nikon lenses? Give me the scoop please if you can. I know Paul I think used the Noct on his M, others have used some R lenses, right?

I noticed a novaflex is expensive for R converter, Adorama has one for 39 bucks, big difference for occasional use? The novaflex supposedly put you in the menu for selecting your R lens. Is that really that big a deal?

Andrew, get that MM away from me ha. I have to pay for an M first...

Counting off seconds until tomorrow. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9....M

Thanks.

Rocky, another excellent shot! The Oly VF2 EVF, is excellent value at $200, and just extends the useability of the M240! I will not travel without it for now It is very much smaller than I expected, and you easily swap using the RF and EVF while it is still attached! The 50 Nocti f/1.0, marginally back focuses when closing down from f/1.0 to about f/2.8 - 4 (Just the nature of this lens) The EVF will be very hand here.

Asiafish, nice captures.

Doug, congrats, almost! After seeing the issues with the A7's, my take would be to get the best possible adapter that you can afford. I have had many lenses calibrated with Camera Clinic in Melbourne, and the fine tolerances needed to just bring back focusing by 1.5cm, is the thickness of paint. Even the weight of the 50 Nocti f/1.0, 75 Lux, with strain the mounting screws, and do need to be tightened after about 12 to 18 months.

You do have to be careful, as I know with the 50 Cron Rigid DR, I needed to modify the near RF cam focusing so the Macro range would work with LV on the M240.

I may just stay up all night, I am getting giddy with anticipation, ha. Like a kid on Christmas. Come to think of it, tomorrow is my Christmas and Birthday too, lol.

Thanks for the advice Charles. Budget is tight right now. I may try the 40 buck one first, maybe get the Novaflex or wait on Leica's adapter, if it's not $2000.00

Doug, I would recommend saving for the novo flex instead of the budget adapters especially if you're going to use it a lot. I've read stories where cheap adapters fall apart and it just wouldn't be worth the savings if it happened to damage your lens. I remember seeing a mint novoflex lemnik adapter in eBay recently for 200, it might still be available. Best of luck!

Charles, many thanks for your kind comments! Congrats for the EVF. Now you can use the M like a Sony (just kidding!)
Rirakuma, good job with the waterfall shot. Love the cool colors.
Zhangyue, thanks for the compliment
Asiafish, nice shots and good noise performance at iso 5000.

Thanks for the advice. I'm not sure how much I will use it. After all, I did buy 3 Summiluxes, and 2 Crons for a reason. :-) However, if I was to trade into another R lens, it could increase a bit over just 1 lens. Like to have a Nikon adapter too, so I can try my Nikkor Noct as well. :-)

First samples, M Type 240... or just M.


First image was Live View focused on back side of the glass angled off the back. Not bad...

Doug, how do you like your M so far?

OOB has been pretty positive so far. Camera is pretty intuitive for someone that has owned an M9. LV seems pretty cool to have. I see some things that seem like they have more dynamic range, then I see other things that don't seem quite as crisp. I believe it is going to take a little time to get the hang of the camera. Its not the same to shoot, but I see a lot of potential I think. It's been a pretty hectic afternoon and evening, trying to get charged, had to run an errand dealing with my Mom's property. Just several things going on today. Software download, etc... (Lightroom). I like the shutter sound, very stealthy! Camera feel is pretty good.

Unhappy to see same camera strap hookup as M9 (I do not like that strap. I stole 2 triangle metal hooks off an old camera that doesn't work, and went with my normal neopreme quick release strap with as much protection for camera mounts as possible.
