Re M240 baseplate: I think it's thinner. At least it feels that way. That's immediately what came to mind the first time I removed it the day I received the camera. That day I also had a couple instances where I accidentally didn't put it back on all the way... that said, I haven't noticed any play in it, yet.

Adam - difficult to say because as you noted, it's not a direct comparison, but the 50AA image does feel more lush to me, and not because of the colour/WB difference.

Robert - keep us posted on what happens with your camera.

Ron, I'll definitely have to do a direct comparison. Oh and about the WB etc, I just shot what the camera wanted me to shoot would have edited them both, but just didn't have the time, I really only did this to show my wife as she was asking, and I had two shots of what I think might be the same cat one day after the next. Maybe this weekend before I head off to LA I'll do a test. Working now in about 20m and on Saturday, so we'll see if I have time.

Katie, The first portrait is great! your son is so handsome BW set is great too! we are posting almost at same time.

Adam, I didn't see anything, I haven't figure out M240 yet, now you give us 50AA example

Charles, She/he looks happy the focus transition does look nice benefit from good composition I like my 55FE very much, but for portrait, somehow I prefer my R lux result. it could sensor, or even LR profile, it could be my process or it could 55FE is too sharp

Here are more 50lux at Qingdao. all at f5.6~f8

I will add it is the friendliest thread and I do like what you all post, very tempting to join in, and I also joined in I found a Monochrom for a good price but I snoozed as I really want my cake and eat it. I want a Monochrom with live view. Maybe I will have to take Gary's suggestion and just get a M-240.

I could always convert to B&W but my heart is set on pure monochrome but the M-240 does have beautiful colors and as Gary says there are adapters available for my classic non Leica- lenses. Still fence sitting.

Nice shots Katie.

I can't compete with your photos here Katie - I like those first 2 best of your last post, but why also is your son shooting his homestate's football jersey ?

Just to sate your wish to stop the posting hiatus, here are just a couple I quickly took when snapping some gear I want to sell.
These two were taken with my M8 using a G45/2 converted to LM. The A7R had been used to taking shots of the M8 and M9 and a couple of other things. The C/Y Zeiss Planar 50/1.4 is already Leitaxed to EF.



M8 with G45/2 at f5.6 or 8. Face probably not in the focal-plane - I had misplaced my specs!

[

M8 with G45/2 at f8 or 11


I'm still mulling over what I sell and what I keep, having bought an A7R. Here in Aus Sony's promotion meant that it came with a free vertical grip and a free adapter of choice.

I'm not selling the 7R, but do I sell my M8 and M6 Classic and keep my 'newly-sensored' M9, or vice-versa? As i've rambled on about a few weeks ago I am pessimistic about sensor longevity of the M9, combined with its still considerable value if it should fail.

I have a 5D III for action photography and that's getting less value by the day - a weekend motorbike trip caused some chafing of the camera bag against the pentaprism, causing yet more paint rubs through to the metal. It looks like I neglect my gear which is far from the truth.

Now, anyone got a picture of a Porsche 911 before this page number increments?

My apologies for not commenting specifically on images - I've been very lazy, just 'liking' lots of great shots.

Burningheart - the M8 is of course a fine camera for digital B&W!

Thank you for the comments and likes
Charlie, nice series!
Gary, excellent work with the 180 APO!
Katie, love the B&W and the angles
Lenticular, the A7r is an excellent cam, even with its quirks. I would keep your M9 IMO, as I believe it is a very robust travel cam. Only issue is that you may need to re calibrate the RF every 12 months, which in Australia is only a 3 day exercise.
Phil, beautiful tonality!!! The M-M always amazes me.

Shot from this afternoon at a birthday M240 50 Cron Rigid DR, in macro mode.

Charles - what a beautiful shot, Phil described its qualities very well.

Thanks for your own views on the M9. The A7R was bought when I was firmly on the path of sell M9, keep M8, M6Classic. With M9 prices dropping fast at least in North America, I may revaluate!

Sort of a leica question:

What postal-service did you use when sending to Solms? And what insurance?

I'm from Amsterdam so it doesn't has to be overseas ect. But looking at for example Fedex the prices are 100 to 200 euro :S
It is cheaper for me to drive to Solms....

I really want the package to be insured since there is a 6500 euro camera inside. But adding that amount of value skyrockets the price.

Last time with my M8 I just gave the camera to the shop who send it to solms for me. Total costs 100 euro including the repair..

Burningheart, go ahead, you only live once

David, nice shot of the chinese lion!

Phil, I like it very much, simple but effective

Charles, beautiful light and selective focus! Outstanding!

Edward, thanks for the lion comments, although its typically `lenticular-mediocre`

Congrats on getting the M and in selling your M9, not to mention getting it repaired quite quickly.

Gutsy move from you I think, to take that first one with what's happened in recent weeks in Bangkok. That one and your last stand out from the others for me. There's a lot of dynamic range in that last one ( of your 1st post on this page).

The little boy in your last shot epitomises street photography!

Thank you David! Nothing mediocre about the lion shot

Thai army are very friendly guys, no worries about that. After I took his picture, the soldier gave me a military salute! Too bad I had the camera away at that moment

The M has excellent dynamic range but imho the A7 is quite better and I do prefer the Sony colors. But of course working with the A7 is like working on a computer, you have to keep on pressing buttons. Not my cup of tea. I really love the analog experience of the Leica M.

The soldier shot would have been very difficult with the Sony because of the net, but focusing the RF was like a breeze

I know what you mean about the A7! I shot all last weekend with my 5D and today only took a small number of shots with the M8, but how great it is to have the simplicity of RF and Leica's interface.
