A question I'd like to throw out to M240 users:

Is anyone using the BM240 L-plate and grip set from Really Right Stuff? I'd like to hear your experiences with it.

I'm considering mainly the L-plate, but since that rules out my half-case I might as well throw in the grip as well for better... grip (and left hand side protection too). But according to the specs on the RRS page, that's a whole 200g plus bulk added, which I fear might bring the camera into DSLR territory.

Also, I'm not sure if the grip has any sort of soft material surface on
...Show more

That L and base plate is extremely useful for tripod work. The grip is very handy if you're using larger lens but its made of metal without much grip (its nowhere near as comfortable as the grip on the D800). I could take a picture of the M with the grip if it helps but I personally wouldn't use it for everyday shooting.

Thanks. I suppose I could order the full set and not always attach the grip... but if I end up never using the grip, that's $52 and 80g that I could have avoided purchasing in the first place.

Thomas, spectacular action shot!
Ceder, beautiful light and such a cute little girl
Katie, very nice but I think the 1st one worked better for me.
Mikael, many thanks for your comments. Nice shots with the ZM 25. Good to see other ZM users

Hi from Copenhagen!
Great images guys, traveling hasn't allowed me to comment, but I have quickly scanned the pages I missed!

atwl77 - grips pretty good for heavy or long lenses (50noct, 75/90apo probably 21/24lux), I personally don't like grips on my M cameras though, but at $52, it might be worth having, since you'll already have to buy the baseplate.

airfrogusmc, nice celebration portrait

Bijltje, your MM has nice punch. like the rocks p.984 #6 and pretty much all the landscape in p.984 #7 equally

Edwardkaraa, thanks. I would use the ZM25 more often, but i misplaced my ZI VF, been using VC VF which has been ok. Wish the ZM21/4.5 performed better on digital, just use it on film, would have been ideal on this trip for a majority of the wide situations.

Here are a couple more with M9 + ZM25

I like both versions for different reasons, but leaning towards B&W
Color Version, more dramatic


B&W Version, more details


The next 2 photos I put up to ask a question.
If you shoot with an Ultrawide, like a ZM25 and you left it coded as an Elmarit-M 90 (versus uncoded) does it do some sort of lens correction in Lightroom, even if you have in disabled in Lightroom? I tried using Elmar 24 correction in LR but it still seems a little off in the photo below; not as noticeable in the previous 3 photos due to subject matter, or maybe that's just normal barrel distortion with this lens?
Coded as Elmarit-90, lens corrected as Elmar 24 in LR


Coded as Elmarit 90, lens correction off


I'll probably do a quick "controlled" test this weekend to figure out the effects of uncoded, "correctly" coded as 24 elmar, accidentally coded a "telephoto" + LR uncorrected and corrected

Bijltje, love that series

I had another outing yesterday.

L1014379 by unoh7, zm18 f/4.8
For this one, I started on a mountain bike headed up the valley which winds to the right near the big peak in the shot above.

L1014429 by unoh7, zm35/2 f/2.8
Here I left my bike, and started hiking.

L1014448 by unoh7, zm35/2 f/8
Long way up The creek was pretty high so I looked for a bridge:

L1014441 by unoh7, zm35/2 f/4.8


L1014443 by unoh7, zm 35/2 f/6.7

creek kept climbing:

L1014450 by unoh7, zm35/2 f/6.7

fed by many rivulets:

L1014453 by unoh7, unrecorded lens.


L1014466 by unoh7, zm18 f/4

looking back the way we came

L1014560 by unoh7, zm18 f/6.7

where's our peak from the first shot?

L1014558 by unoh7, zm 18 f/8

who's high?

L1014736 by unoh7, zm18 f/13


L1014528 by unoh7, 28 cron f/13

we're now well past our peak on the left (out of view) and the "big basin" is straight ahead:

L1014763 by unoh7, 28 cron f/8

I smell a waterfall....

L1014594 by unoh7, zm18 f/9.5

I know how you guys love the B&W:

L1014647 by unoh7, cron 28 f/9.5

L1014671 by unoh7, cron 28 f/11
28 cron is sharpest lens I own at f/11 ( i think)

we could export our rocks......

L1014728 by unoh7, zm18 f/13
This range is very very old. Far older than our many other nearby mountain ranges. 1.5 billion year old metamorphic souvenirs.

OMG, that's the way home?

L1014711 by unoh7, zm18 9.5

dann, I missed one:

L1014503 by unoh7, Canon 135/3.5 f/6.7

I do love these big lenses:

L1014484 by unoh7, Canon 135/3.5 f/5.7

forgot my kayak:

L1014761 by unoh7, 28 cron f/6.7

goodbye old stones:

L1014693 by unoh7, zm 18 f/9.5
a few hours later I was back at the truck

What did I learn? Always take a spare card becuse your M9 may suddenly decide it does not care for the current one and make you wonder whether the ones you already shot are still on there

our peak:

L1014492 by unoh7, Canon 135/3.5 f/6.7

Robert, such great sets! I really like set no. 1 due to the more abstract styling.

Allen, nice autoportrait!

Neopan, nice ZM 25 shots. If the lens correction is on, the corrections are cooked into the raw file and cannot be undone. The corrections are only for vignetting and color shading.

Charlie, there are some breath taking landscapes there. Such clarity and color is outstanding!

Edwin, beautiful shots and welcome back. The 1st shot is fantastic!!!!

Charlie - nice set! Looks like you are getting out a lot to the mountains.
Edwin - great to see you posting again. I really like B&Ws like the first one you posted. Nice subtle tones...

The ZM25 is apparently slightly longer than 25, so maybe more around 26mm... I'd just ditch the external finders and get used to shooting with the 28 frame lines and expect a bit more in the images. But that's just me.


The next 2 photos I put up to ask a question.
If you shoot with an Ultrawide, like a ZM25 and you left it coded as an Elmarit-M 90 (versus uncoded) does it do some sort of lens correction in Lightroom, even if you have in disabled in Lightroom? I tried using Elmar 24 correction in LR but it still seems a little off in the photo below; not as noticeable in the previous 3 photos due to subject matter, or maybe that's just normal barrel distortion with this lens?


In-camera corrections, from my understanding, are for vignetting and colour shift control. Therefore, if the camera is set for 90mm and you shoot with a 25, images will be somewhat incorrectly corrected into the corners, but it might not be such a big deal. You could fix it with Cornerfix or the Lightroom flat field plug-in by doing a reference shot with the incorrect camera/lens/coding combination.

Corrections in Lightroom are for lens distortion. If the camera has embedded the correct lens EXIF data through the correct lens coding, vignetting and colour shift corrections have already been applied and there would be no need for Lightroom to do additional correction for this.

The best way I can think of to fix the error, if it's noticeable, is as mentioned above with either Cornerfix or the Lightroom plug-in. Or just convert to B&W.

BTW, initially I read your comment as 90mm lens shot with 28mm profile, which I've done, and you end up with brighter than normal corners and some significant green/cyan corner shift due to the profile's overcorrection for a 90mm lens... But with a wide shot with a tele profile, chance are the image will be under corrected for vignetting and colour shift,

Great images all around!
In Stockholm now.. Kinda cold considering I'm use to Singapore weather. BTW if anyone here sees a guy walking around with two M240s feel free to say hello

I took some interesting shots in Copenhagen but I have come to the realisation that I'm a straight up 50mm guy.. I only brought my 35/75 combo, and I'm really hurting for a 50mm lens!

A few shots here and there, I would have liked the 21SEM, but a 50 would have been just perfect.
