    Not too shabby. Could do worse on eBay that's for sure.

    I've purchased used equipment from camera west before (walnut creek store), and have been very pleased. IMHO, they are very conservative on how the grade their used equipment.

    Don't worry. The queasy feeling will subside quickly enough. Besides, that Summilux deserves to be mounted on an M.

    Congratulations on the purchase.

    Cheers,

    You will love the M. IMHO, it is the best digital M. Image quality is great, specially at higher ISO. The shutter release sound is just nice and solid but very quiet. The Live View for me together with the ability to install an EVF just make the M a very flexible camera. Congratulations! Actually, the queasy feeling, is just excitement :)

    Congrats for the purchase! I think the 240 opens the door to a new era in the Leica saga...less dependent on the rangefinder and capable to manage all sort of interesting lenses...

    I received the camera today from Camera West. It looks brand spanking new. Box and all contents look like they have never been touched. Here she is:

    Looks beautiful- looking forward to some pictures with it!

    What lenses did you keep from the M9?

    Thanks, right now I just have the 35mm Summilux pictured and a 35mm Nokton. Plus a few non-rangefinder lenses I can mount for fun.

    That's a gorgeous camera. Go, enjoy shooting it. :)

    If you at all miss the quick versatility of a zoom, I can recommend the Leica 35-70mm R f4. Wonderfully sharp, and with a great macro as well. It's wonderful having a Leica-sharp zoom with great contrast on the full-frame M.

    I think you will see your lens collection grow very fast. The flexibility of the M allows you to experiment.
