    Yes, some "underexposing" bug corrected when using flash, Thambar 90 and Nocti 75 included and..... a Summilux-M 90/1.5 hidden in the firmware ¡¡!!

    And this matches with what Peter Karbe has said, 90/1.5=60mm exactly the same as the Nocti, as Peter Karbe pointed, "diameter of the entrance pupil – in other words the ratio between focal length and aperture – should not exceed 60mm in order to facilitate the operation of the rangefinder".

    I updated my M9. I don't perceive any difference at all from the older version, but why not keep it current? So I did.

    I still keep my M9 at 1.176- the last version that did not get too paranoid about batteries. I don't have the newer lenses, so did not upgrade.

    I notice my M9 isn't as happy starting up with non-Leica batteries. Was the update after 1.176 partially responsible for that?

    Yes- the later updates "talk" to the battery to determine remaining charge. Third party batteries often don't speak the language.
