Not really interested in shooting 4K with this camera, I wish they would strip this out and put the savings into a lower priced option. To me, video has to be done right, which requires a lot of support equipment which I do not carry around on a daily basis.
Looks like Leica has recognized this and is taking action to replace the motors free of charge. I hope they have a better solution, motor/gear, than just replacing the existing motor.
Good to know that they stand behind their…[Read more]

Hats off to Leica for standing behind their products! The M9 entered into service 5 years ago, most companies (Canon, Nikon etc) would just turn their back after their standard one year warranty is up. I guess that is why we lay out the extra $ – for extra service and support from both Leica and their authorized dealers.
If you are driving up the coast, at the border of California and Oregon there is a spectacular grove of redwood trees (sequoias) at the Jeddidiah Smith Redwoods.
Had the same problem with my 30, would not focus to infinity in AF mode. It ended up back in Solms for a tuneup.
Looks like your lens will get to visit the new factory in Wetzlar. Contact Kelsey Fain and maybe she can arrange a loaner for you.

It’s great that Leica brought along a T so everyone on the workshop could try it out.
I will admit that I tried to make the system take a bad picture (technically) but it was very difficult. The only thing I wish were better is the image stabilization feature. With Olympus, the 5 axis…[Read more]
I hear you there! Hiking with a big tripod and S gear can get tiresome! The T is a very good system, wide DR and great image quality. A great upgrade for my X2 which I also carried out in the field. The lenses, 23 and 18-56 zoom are up to the standards that we have become accustomed to. It works very well with the T-M adapter and if…[Read more]
The 350 f 4 Tele Tessar that I believe you are referring to is for the Hasselblad 200 and 2000 series focal plane cameras. It is in V mount, so a Leica S-V adapter is needed. The 350 was produced into versions, F and FE, the main difference is the FE had electronic contacts for aperture communication to the 200 series of cameras.…[Read more]
Interesting, they must have changed the wording, mine reads:

The OLED battery icon indicated 3/4 of charge left when I started the cycle. Lucky for me I only intended to use the magnifier scope to inspect the sensor at the time. I was probably a minute or two into looking at the sensor determining the best course of action for the cleaning when this happened. A battery will display a voltage at rest and…[Read more]
The wording on the certificate is below, it does imply that the lens has to have been bought from a Leica S dealer as you will have to go through them for the exchange. So in a way this keeps second hand lenses purchased from private parties out of the program.

Great stuff! You should take advantage of the lights when you can as well. Your use of the available light is very good, keep working on it!
I am confident that Leica will answer with a fair and thoughtful solution. They have proven to be responsive to the customer needs and have shown above and beyond support with the M8 IR issue and M9 cracked sensor problems.
I purchased my lenses after the deadline, registered online and was allowed to download CS lens vouchers. I also…[Read more]
Have they changed their position on the upgrade process? I thought that there was no time limit on when you bought the original lens and was told just the opposite recently that there is a definite cut off date. So I checked on the owners area today and there indeed is a purchase by date of Sept 20, 2010. So it would appear that any lens…[Read more]
