Leica M24o (M Type 240)

Usability: Shutter Action and Feel

The shutter release does not have the same tactile quality as the shutter on the M9. Numerous times (over and over), I press the release and nothing happened; it requires a firmer press to make it go, which is especially annoying in self timer mode.

There is apparently no Advance = Soft | Discreet | Soft & Discrete setting to be found on the M240.

The shutter mode (single frame, continuous, self timer) was also quite sticky on the camera I tested; it kept sticking when trying to switch to self timer (and back). Perhaps this is intentional, but I found it troublesome.
