Thanks LCT - I have seen those numbers elsewhere and hopefully they are somewhere near the mark (although maybe against the M-E). One of the reasons I got the M8.2 was for the sapphire screen and...

I only found this thread because my M8.2 has the dreaded coffee stain and it looks like I have to make the choice as to whether I should use the upgrade path through Solms. Love the M8.2 and have...

CV 50/1.5 and loose aperture ring

Had this lens for a little while and use it on an M8.2 - sharp wide open and an absolute bargain if you can find one used.

I still have and use my X100 - aside from its quirks (and the simplicity of the M8) it still can compete with the M8 (at an equivalent 35mm). I am sure the X-Pro 1 and 35/1.4 will be the same for...

Hi Timmyjoe,

I would be surprised if a shutter or sensor repair is any more expensive on an M8(.2) than an M9. What is crucial is whether any spare parts are available. The LCD issue is well...

I was (and still have - but rarely use) 5DII,
Then bought X100 (usual reasons - weight etc..),

Voigtlander 50mm 1.1 loose front ring

Hi,

I have a Voigtlander 50mm 1.1 with a loose front ring. It does not twist, but there is about 1mm play - as if the internel screws that hold it in place are loose.

This has no effect on the...
