After 8 weeks a Leica M is in the house.
My M9 did non get repaired after a sensor defect (4 years, 50.000 Photos), but Leica was so kind and offered me an upgrade to the M with some extra payment for me. This M(240) arrived today – together with a Summicron-M 50.
This lens is a very special one from 2003, a 50-years-Summicron-50-anniversary model, technically based on model 11826 from 1979 (type IV), optically it is a type II, which was available from 1956 onwards. If you want to know more check the Thorsten Overgaard oder Ken Rockwell.
I bought the lens 2nd hand, but it is like new, probably it has been sitting the last 12 years in a box on a shelve. Now I will take it out every day to get some fresh air
Of course you can see the first test photos
