Thank you. If there's a backstory, I'm not aware of it. I was just walking by and the strangeness of the scene caught my eye. I was prefocused and took a quick shot. That's all I can say about it.

Thank you John, I hope for that too! I think mine went in ahead of a major crush if only by three or four days. I emailed to try and get an ETA and have yet to hear anything.
I'm trying not to go for anything like an M in film although I have the glass to support that. I am enjoying the XA, Contax T and Rollei 35S....and really love not changing lenses!

Good luck with your MM. If I were you I would share with them your commitment as a professional customer and urge them to replace your sensor regardless. It's really not fair of them to expect you to face the prospect of a $1K repair and many months without your camera again. I think you have a strong case and I would certainly make it to them.

John
Thanks John for the advice and I will take it.

I was trying to get a little more to the left but then my shadow was beginning to encroach on the arm of the bench.

I've been without my 246 for about a month -- I sent it and my 50/1.4 Summilux in for calibration and to have the sensor and rangefinder etc checked out (things just didn't seem to be in focus at wider apertures). I can now say that if you are concerned about faster lenses not being sharp at wider apertures, it is definitely worth it to send both the body and lens in together to get them 'mated'. I've only taken a few photos in the backyard since I got the camera and lens back, but I can already see the difference:

My MM is in getting the sensor replaced. Big brown did deliver a new M 10 last week. I was thinking I wouldn't see it until the end of the year or early next year. I was on a couple of waiting lists. Murphy's Camera in Louisville (the same place I bought my MM 5 years ago this Oct was the first to get it in. Kevin Murphy is the person I have dealt with both times and they have both been wonderful experiences.

Haven't been shooting for some time, but put in some effort to get out shooting this past weekend. Didn't get much in the way of sunrise, but the 246 excels in soft light.

Well I don't have the M10 but my X113 suffices!

Very nicely done (trees on lake image Jeremy

Little bit of good news last night -- My entry to the Leica Store DC's 2017 National Juried Exhibition, 'From Dusk till Dawn' was awarded 1st Place by the jurors! Quite a surprise indeed, as I generally don't take too many photos 'from dusk till dawn'. There was the only photo that I could think of in my archives (you were allowed up to 3 entries for the submission fee), and it was chosen as the best shot in the exhibition. The other interesting thing is that the Leica Store removed the middle wall from their exhibition space last year, so they only had 14 pictures in the show. I'd be interested to know how many submissions they got!

Another surprise was the award -- a Leica Sofort!

Many thanks! I try the best I can

Interestingly, last night someone mentioned to me the Orson Welles movie, The Third Man, and how he thought my photo was lifted right out of that movie. I did a quick Google search on some images from that movie - very eerie similarities!

Many thanks guys - the thing that I thought was funny (to me anyway) was that after I submitted my photo, someone from the store sent me a note reminding me that I could submit up to 3 photos for the submission fee. I replied that this was the only 'from dusk till dawn' photo that I had (I have since found a second one), so this one photo was it. Guess the blind squirrel does get an acorn every once in a while!

The annual exhibition usually gets reviewed by an area art critic for the Washington City Paper - I'll be interested to read what he has to say about this year's offerings.

Still having a hard time with this camera in very contrasty situations, but if I bracket enough I tend to get closer lately.



This one is looking quite like what I was able to get with HP5+ pulled to 50 in the woods:



both with the 35/2.0 V4 and the Heliopan yellow filter.

It must be a srew that screws the coding system up. (I was the lucky owner of the Elmarit 90 first version with a screw in the wrong place).

I think you might be right. Its odd that I never noticed it until recently when I was trying to figure out when I managed to get a Wide Angle 90mm lense hehe..
