Pros: Robustness, Value for a Leica, reliability, battery life, all brass and as it ages is also more beautiful, unique M with video mode, sapphire rear screen really anti-scratch that without protective film

Cons: Price of used however adequate to Leica, expensive accessories, no GPS, no connection with Smartphone, inadequate EVF viewfinder

Opinion: I had the MP240 for a year and I'm going to sell it reluctantly just because I took off the sphidness of a new M10P, actually there are no real differences between the MP240 and the M10P in terms of image quality, I can't talk much about the M10P yet, but of the MP240 I can tell you that I went from -20 of a cold Baltic Sea in Lithuania on New Year's Eve to .41 in Tunisia this summer , I went from a rainy and humid winter Germany to the dry and dusty Sahara without ever uncertainty and without ever missing a beat .... thanks to you I started and faked a photo book in 6 months (next release ... I hope ) .... never a problem and this convinced me to switch to a new digital M that I will keep for several years, I do not deny that the M10P has several advantages, but the price difference is not small

Pros: LiveView, optical viewfinder, LCD resolute, improved battery, LED frames, light meter to three options (spot, weighted, matrix)

Cons: Weight, Size, EVF viewfinder of poor quality, lack pose T (present on M9)

Opinion: It had for three months to replace my old Leica M9. At first glance the machine fills all the gaps of his predecessor, and you immediately notice a general responsiveness in both reading and writing, the ability to use the latest generation SD card, an LCD resolute and conveniently with the LiveView lens "accessory "as the 21mm and 90mm, where thanks to liveview you can do without external viewfinders to be put on the sled, so you have full control of the frame and fire thus avoiding parallax errors (optical wide) and errors fire (short telephoto lenses) .rnRispetto my M9 I found it too heavy and large, and all those megapixels combined with an optical rangefinder viewfinder 0.68x, have meant that we often had to fire or shake-problems. Also I could see that the .iso is not improved much, you gain 1 stop for color photos and 2 stops in white black, always in comparison with the old CCD M9 where one would stop to 800 iso.rnPersonalmente the M240 with its CMOS 24mpx it was not aroused strong emotions that I abandon all my old M9, where instead that because of its CCD sensor 18mpx is still a special car today. I think that the M240 was an attempt to counter leica a cutthroat market, creating something that would allow different uses (see possibility of useless video on M system). Not by chance after the M240, Leica has "baked" the M262 to maintain a minimalist and pure philosophy.

Pros: Size, quality, performance at high ISO

Cons: Design and weight

Opinion: When you pick up the heart beat and feel the urge to shoot you strong. I had one available for two days of workshops Leica Akademie and I can say that the rumors are true sometimes. Beautiful, both for feeling that for emotion transmitted. Menu, various settings, all very understandable. Incredible quality, the maf with a rangefinder system requires a bit of practice but if in doubt just start over. The viewfinder is large, the display as well, the ignition is fast and battery strong enough. HOWEVER, the beautiful design a limit has to have it .. Well .. The body weights and the grip is not the best .. From definitely revisit .. Many times I was afraid to see her fall tumbling to terra.rnIl judgment can only be positive .. It is a body that knows the town and there is a lot of fun using it!

Pros: Lightness, strength, excellent performance, ability to take high-quality optics not only M series, uniqueness and value over time.

Cons: Jpeg not up, the system limits rangefinder not autofocus that make it very suitable for many types of photography (sports, action, etc.), sensor easily sporcabile (when it is on the shutter open to allow the metering sensor, often changing optical accidentally with the machine switched on and with the sensor exposed) rn

Opinion: Camera heir of m8 and m9 and new end point of the Leica rangefinder camera. Personally, in the past I did use and abuse of reflex, I went back to get interested in photography, because of the simplicity and quality of the Leica M system manual, which allowed me, during various trips, to create excellent photos without having to absorb as pounds of equipment, as in the past. For me it was a revelation, both for the sense of freedom that comes from the lightness and compatteza equipment, both for the quality that express these machines coupled with Leica lenses, especially those of the past. You have to try it. Even in the past I was skeptical about the cameras of the German mark, but soon got hold I changed my mind and I could not go back. Certainly for certain genres and for daily professional use, I realize that you have to look elsewhere. It seems absurd today instead having to carry around, during leisure, those beasts ... and I do not mean only the cameras but also objected toyou. rnAndando right at M10 (M240 type) I have to say that I come from the M8, M9 and possess even one against which, no doubt have been made important steps forward. If certain that the CCD M9 gives denser picture and set low ISO, the M240 while remaining extremely simple (of course for those who have mastered the technique) adopt solutions that allow a wider use. Live view, bigger screen, electronic viewfinder, and especially ability to mount many optical level. The real difference from the M9 has the ability to shoot at high ISO, I would say up to 3,200, although you can go further. The range of situations in which you can photograph widens then quite a bit, not excelling in this area (high ISO), the M9. Personally I find relevant the possibility of automatic ISO according all'accoppiata time / aperture set manually. In any case the quality of the CMOS is not significantly lower than, at least so apparand from the results, the CCD. My opinion is that the beauty of the shots so prevalent depends on excellence leica optics, even those of the past. No coincidence that my favorite ones are the 70s / 80 still in perfect condition and necks can show a kind of three-dimensional image. Again you have to try, even I was skeptical punto.rnInfine, the feeling of challenging a number M, especially now that the competition is represented by plasticoni, is truly unique. It perceives the craftsmanship of the piece, for which the price, decidedly high, can not be a counter, however, the expected value over time. rnrnrnrnrn

Pros: She and her optics.

Cons: JPEG on camera (film tenuous and lively), tend to completely demolish the detail and knead the photo. with those in bn clearer the details but the noise reduction is absurd. Slow sw in LV.

Opinion: That is, the system M either love or hate. I come from cameras "modern" as D600 / D800 / DF, but the M is unique in its absurdity. detail, the three-dimensional color and timbre of this system are unique. You have to buy it only if you know what you want otherwise they are a waste of money. RNLA 240 in question is an attempt to get closer to the technologies leica competitors while maintaining its stamp inconfondibile.rnRispetto version with CCD sensor, there are several improvements but also a disadvantage; we start from this: rnIl CCD offers unrivaled detail for a CMOS sensor. The leica m is less than the engraved M9 / ME to base sensitivity (ISO 160 CCD - ISO 200 CMOS) rnSul rest instead there storia.rnISO you can push in 3200 without any major dramas of loss if the photo is properly exposed .rnMirino Electronic - this is the real advantage of the machine with the best performance ISO. In fact, in addition to having the advantage of being able to shoot with long system and be sure of the point of MAF, the reduced draftallows if one wants to attack us anything like a normal mirrorless. With the rangefinder shoot with a 50mm f 0.95 or 1.4 is practically impossible, and the percentage of good shots is much reduced. by lengthening the focal things get worse esponenzialmente.rnConservando though the optical rangefinder and working with under 35 mm, the M becomes a machine to battle for the street. You're almost always in hyperfocal and speed focheggio with the rangefinder is istantanea.rnDa try at least volta.rnrnrn
