I've been reading some of the various online fora and it appears there are some common issues with the new Leica M based on user feedback.
I personally don't have one yet but have put down a deposit - I was told that it's likely I would get a call sometime in August or September
(I don't expect it earlier, heck, it's Leica after all...) - and I hope these issues are fixed with Firmware updates before I get mine.
So far I've read the following issues:
- Freezing - battery needs to be removed to clear the issue
- Over/Under Exposure when waking from "stand by" or "sleep" mode
- Time to wake up from "stand by" position is a bit annoying
- Strap Lugs - but this is a "given" on the early models as per the recall
Some of you are members over at LUF so I figure this is just repeating that thread from over there but for those that are not, and those that may have the M - have you had any of the issues above? Just a yes or no - not trying to start a "Leica is a HORRIBLE company !!!" / "Why does this happen to a $xx,xxx camera !!!!" type thread - just curious if there have been issues for folks with the new M.
