Well other than the script on top, it looks (and probably acts) just lick my black M-A.

Yup, I'm sure it's identical, other than the text on the top plate and the BP finish (and matching lens). Nice set, though.

Cant stop loving my MP despite its earlier quirks

Don't usually care for off the truck skin colors but this one really works. A beaut.

Thank you, i was too not expecting the color would match just fine…

If you wait about 80 years you might be lucky and have your black vulcanite fade to that nice colour.

Unfortunately, I had to send my M6J 50 elmar-m in for a CLA. One of the things I like about modern elmar-m is the short focus throw but the ring was just too stiff on the one I got. I'll have to use the black one until it comes back from CLA. I really wish there was a black version with a focus tab as it's a great fit on the MP for me.

Agree totally, the collapsible is an ideal mate for the MP.  I have a summicron 50 too but it stays on the electric M10!   The MP with the elmar-M is really pocketable…. A pleasant change as I’ve been shooting my Brick-esque Mamiya C330 TLR this week!

Absolutely johntobias, there's a reason the 50 elmar-m and MP combination shows up a ton in this thread. The collapsible summicron is obviously no slouch either...

Leica please modernize and re-release this lens 🙏.

Enjoy your break from the Mamiya :)

It's interesting how much many of us appreciate the focus tab.  I traded a v5 50 Cron for a Canadian v4 just for the tab.  

BTW, great looking MP.

may be the most beautiful thing I've ever seen

Many congratulations, but really. What about a MA without the battery cover?😉

Seriously, it looks fantastic!  Again, congratulations and enjoy!

Yeah, the battery cover is my least favorite feature, but I'm able to overlook it due to it being eclipsed by that gorgeous black paint finish :)

      Hi all, I did a search and it doesn’t look like we have a thread for this beautiful camera.
      I recently acquired this example from Meister camera and am looking forward to putting a film through it.
      The mechanical precision of the camera is amazing.  Easily on par with my M3.  The meter seems to be accurate based on comparing the readings I get from my Nikon F3.  The weight with lens and leather half case is about 1300 grams compared to about 950 for my M3 with leather half case, Voigtlander meter and Zeiss 50mm f2 planar.  The original leather half case is actually quite heavy at about 200g, but I like to use these to keep my cameras in mint condition.

      After two months working with the M I can say: I love my M.
      It sounds wonderful. It feels wonderful. Takes great pictures. And also thanks to Luigi it looks great!

      Not sure I can "love" a mechanical object but, in the spirit of the forum, I thought I ought to start a new thread for Leica's new film camera. (In truth, I think the M-A is really a variation of the MP rather than a different camera but I suppose Leica would like us to see it differently). It is certainly a handsome camera and, strangely, the M-A also feels a very modern camera.

      Hi everyone,
       
      My first post after lurking for ages. I thought all the M2's were feeling neglected and couldn't stand for it any longer!
       
      Mine is lovely and with my 35 Sumilux asph. produces lovely results! No need to go digital for me. It is much easier just to get a scan when I need it! In berlin there are some really good labs too...
       
      Cheers and to lovely M2's
       
      Adrian
