Thanks...I went out yet again with the R 6.2 and compared readings...the R9 was regularly one EV off...kaput as I said...sometimes I wonder about the purported Leica quality...the lenses are the best...the M bodies were great....I hope the the M 240 and Monochrome live up to the heritage of being manufactured to the best standards. Now that there are many more 240 bodies arriving in the USA we will soon have some feedback.
