Leica M 240

Post by wlewisiii » Mon Aug 16, 2021 7:02 am

It's been a long while hasn't it? Not sure how many might remember me these days but I've been getting the weekly digest all along and noting Les' passing made me realize how long it's been.

Was using m4/3 for a long while, then a couple of years ago shifted to Nikon D7100 & manual focus Nikkors. I was fairly happy with that though I occasionally entertained the thought of a modern Leica, the cost was out of my reach. Then last January I got notified of a small inheritance. With some careful ebaying and scrounging I've been staying digital and getting back into rangefinders.

(Luigi case & Aki Asahi leather)

I've got a nice handful of LTM lenses for it:
Voigtlander 35/1.7, 50/1.5
FSU 35/2.8 (J-12), 50/2(J-8), 50/2.8 (I-61), 50/3.5 (I-22)
Chiyoko (later Minolta) 50/2 Summitar clone
Leica 90/4
with a Voigtlander 21/4 superduper wide arriving soon.

Here's a small selection of recent images.

Thanks for looking. I hope to be a bit more active again but we'll see what life brings.

William! Glad to see you again! I see your sig has changed - I'll admit I have permanently associated you with Holiday...

Nice photos, all, and wonderful rig you've set up. Looking forward to seeing more from it.

Glad to see you again! What a way to get back into RF!

I like that cat in the window.

Good to "see" you again, William. We'll all have to get reacquainted. I've been considering an M240 myself, but have other options to consider. I like the blue covering you chose for yours.
