    Very nice performance with the M240 in the middle of a hot, bright day....

    Great series. Superb lens for story telling. Maybe the second and fourth as B/W?

    I need to spend some time in downtown Saint Paul with this lens ...

    Interesting thought.... I shoot a lot in B&W but this time I chose to emphasize the colors... I'll develop them in B&W and see how they turn out.

    I believe it's the latest version. I just purchased it used (Mint) from Popflash it's the silver 35mm f2 Summicrom M 6-Bit coded...

    Tanks for the kind input. I am very happy with the Leica M and the Leica glass. In reality, for some reason my images are just better in general than those I have made with other systems. The camera really shines under difficult light situations. Even shooting JPGs I am able to recover a lot of information. The images above required very minimal LR5 manipulation, basically to suit my own predilection. I will post more shots with other lenses that came out nicely even though the contrast of light and shadows was incredibly harsh.

    is the m240 as iso-limited as the m9?

    I haven't had the M9, but based on my friend's experience and that of many others who've posted on the topic, the M240 is much more capable of producing usable images with higher ISO numbers.
