Remembering The Leica M240

As I probably won’t be shooting with a Leica M anytime soon, some final thoughts on the top end of the market-

  • It is not as responsive as other brands- shutter lag is a problem
  • LCD and menu are a little clunky
  • Rangefinder is not always accurate
  • Reliability is questionable
  • You have to take the bottom off to get the card out

Having said that I would drop all other cameras to shoot with a 50 lux and a 30lux kit. Why? I don’t know but the pics and the camera plus my vision seem to come together in a magical way. Its a mystery but there you go. I will miss you, you crazy German. We laughed and we cried, we travelled and saw the world but no its time to say goodby-

“You do something to me
Something that simply mystifies me
Tell me, why should it be?
You have the power to hypnotize me”

Marlene Dietrich
