Initial results show that these two Leica APO lenses work exceedingly well on the M240, including ease of focus and sharpness. Results are stunningly sharp. I’ll be posting many Ultra-HD examples when I return, my goal on this trip being to explore the performance bounds on the M240, as well as bokeh and overall behavior.
One also wonders whether a suitable lens adapter (with necessary tripod mount) will be forthcoming for Leica R lenses on the Sony A7R. Now that could get interesting: a Sony A7R with these Leica APO lenses (36MP) versus the Leica M Typ 240 (24MP). But that Leica R-adapter M is a superbly built item whereas 3rd party lens adapters range in quality from marginal to adequate.
The worst problem: forgetting to change the lens profile when changing lenses.
It’s cold at 13,000' elevation. Colder than usual for mid October. My practical usage complaint about the Leica M Typ 240 is that its controls are badly designed for use in cold weather (gloves), really inferior to a Nikon or Canon DSLR which I can operate with even fairly thick gloves.
