  2. Where we are now: The site is back up and running! The character set encoding issue has been fixed so old posts should now look ok. I am currently working on themes/skins etc and I will be deleting the temporary green skin very soon as it has many issues. I will do a very quick variation on the stock blue skin first just to get a light-grey background and san-serif font, and I will set this as default. Later this week I will hopefully add a professional third-party skin in pfm colours (life is way too short to do this crap myself, and I've found one I really like than needs next to no tweaking). We are getting there slowly...

  3. May I please request people check and update their email address if it is out if date. I ask as I’m getting countless bounce errors as the server fails to send notifications through etc. I’ll eventually figure out how to send these to a black hole somewhere, but it makes sense to address it at source as quite a few folk are obviously not getting the thread and conversations notifications they have set in their preferences.

  4. Things you need to know about the new ‘Conversations’ PM system:

    a) DO NOT REPLY TO THE NOTIFICATION EMAIL! I get them, not the intended recipient. I get a lot of them and I do not want them! It is just a notification, log into the site and reply from there.

    b) To delete old conversations use the ‘Leave conversation’ option. This is just delete by another name.

[FS] Leica M9 Black paint - new sensor Oct 2017 - boxed

    I have decided to sell my Leica M9, which has served me faithfully for some time. This was sent back in July to Leica in Wetzlar for a new sensor under the Leica replacement programme. Some, but not all, of the original 18 MP CCD sensors had faulty cover glass, which led to corrosion.

    Leica developed a brand new replacement sensor with updated firmware to fix this problem. My M9 has just had a new sensor and came back from Leica just over a week ago. I have not used it since then. It has taken c. 29700 exposures.

    It is only up for sale, as I was expecting it to be returned by mid October, in time for my holiday to Venice. Unfortunately Leica told me that it would not quite be ready on time. Hence I bought a black M10 as I wasn't prepared to traipse around Venice carrying my medium format S(006). I can't justify having a M9 as well as M10 (plus S006, M6TTL, M2 and two R9/DMRs) - so I am reluctantly going to let it go.

    This M9 has the nicer IMHO black paint finish with just a little bit of brassing around the corners, which gives it a nice patina. The screen in unmarked, having had an ACMAXX hard screen protector in place. As part of the replacement sensor service, the camera has had a new leather covering, service and rangefinder adjustment. The camera comes boxed with manual, charger and two original Leica batteries (for some reason I can't find the strap, which I removed before sending back to Leica). I also have a black M8 handgrip (which fits the M9) as well. The paperwork from Leica showing the sensor change will be included.

    I would like £2000 firm for the whole package - no trades. If it doesn't sell, I will happily keep it as a backup for my M10.

    Collection from Cheltenham or I may be able to deliver within a short distance for a contribution for fuel. Happy to ship worldwide at buyer's cost. Payment by bank transfer, paypal (+3%), or paypal gift.
