First post here, but long time Leica shooter. I currently own a Leica M7 but have had my eye an MP as a second body for some time. I'd like to purchase a new one and have been considering an Al La Carte MP to get the green leather . I have a few questions for those who have gone the MP route.
1. How nice is the leather? Does it have that lovely high quality leather smell to it?
2. How long did it take to make and receive your MP? I was quoted 12-16 week by Leica Miami. Is this the norm?
3. Did you have any issues with your build?
4. Anyone do the custom engraving? Thoughts? Was it worth it? Regrets?
Any other thoughts/help on the matter would be appreciated!
