I've been looking at getting a case for my MP. I've come across a few made by Leica (the Ever Ready series), but with slightly different variations on Ebay. Do you know if ones made for the M6 should fit without any issue on the MP? The camera dimensions are exactly the same, so I'd imagine they would be ok.  Also, I've seen cases for the MP with Leicavit. Do you know if the Leicavit changes the dimensions of the MP?

 

Has anyone had any experience with these cases in terms of fit, longevity, etc.?

The Leicavit adds half an inch or so to the height of the camera so cases designed for Leicavit use will not be much good for an MP with the standard baseplate.

I have the Artist and Artisan half case. It fits very snug.

The older MP Leica cases are the best - the way to tell them from the new cases is that older case has two press studs at the front of the half case. Also the half case fully covers the battery button so it does not unscrew its self and fall out.The Artist and Artisan case does not cover the battery cover. The older cases have better leather and the seams are very secure. Red Dot cameras London does have the older pre owned MP case in stock? Good Luck! :)

Hi folks, although not officially Leica, if you are going to get a case for any Leica, it's a good idea to see what Luigi has to offer.  They were formerly called LeicaTime, but I guess supporting Leica products with gorgeous leather doesn't allow you to use even the word Leica in the name ;)

 

Here's some pictures, and for 20 Euros more, he's got a perfect fit case for the Film Ms + Leicavit.

 

Here's some pix of the non-Leicavit versions:
