MP’s Out Of Stock?

Recommended Posts

Advertisement (gone after registration)

I sold my MP a while ago and went the digital route with the M10.  Although I am throughly enjoying the M10 I find myself missing my MP film camera and am considering purchasing another one.  However, I am finding the MP’s are “Out Of Stock” in all the usual places I have looked.

Is this because there has been a resurgence in shooting film and the MP’s are flying off the shelves or just the opposite?  If it’s the latter then I’ll have to rethink this sudden impulse.

FWIW, I got an email from Leica a couple of days ago saying that M-As are now back in stock.  I had forgotten I'd added myself to an email list to be notified when they were available again as they too had been out of stock.  I have a black chrome M-A but had a crazy notion about getting a silver one too :) Anyway, it looks like Leica film cameras are still alive and well.

I was lucky enough to get an MP 0.85 and MP 0.58 on the a-la-carte before it was discontinued.  250SWB said it best, call the Leica dealer you are closest with and they can place and order an probably get you one.  Depending on the dealer, you may need to pay for it in advance.  They said they are not doing the a-la-carte anymore, but you can ask the dealer to see if you wanted different leather or other options.

My MP 0.85 is silver with the M240 grip.  It is my modern M3.  The MP 0.58 is black lacquer with the standard MP wrap, which I love because it just glues to your hand in crazy weather....

Best of luck getting one !  I love mine.

I appreciate the replies and I did put my name on the notification lists.

If anyone knows where I can find a Silver MP in stock in the US please let me know.  I’m sure there are stones left unturned out there.

 Thanks again

There is one for sale via Vico, Ken Hansen's son in law. The condition is like new with 1 year warranty and I believe the price is $4,150. 

You can google Ken Hansen's email address (it is still be used) and Vico will respond very quickly. 

I was looking for a black one otherwise I would have bought it.

Interesting.  Is Vico just selling Ken's inventory or is he taking over Ken's business?

BTW, I randomly signed on Leica.com last Friday night and they had 1 MP and 1 MA in stock. I purchased the 1 MP on the spot and the MA was gone by the time I woke up. I checked because I thought it was random they were in stock.

Was it black paint or silver chrome?

Haven’t seen a new black paint in a very long time...

Black paint. Both MP and MA were black paint.
