Any wear showing on your Black Chrome M body? I had an M6 awhile back that started showing the chrome look on the edges, but never really seen a black chrome body that has shown significant wear? photos please if you have one to show. My M-A still looks as new as when I bought, going on two years ago.

I have no photo’s to show, just my honest answer about the Monochrome1. I owned it 10 years and the wear was negligible and rather sympathetic at a few small typical spots prone to wear such as the rounding of the bottomplate

Here's my 1985 M6 that I bought in either '85 or '86 and have used ever since. The top edges show light reflections not wear. It has generally lived in a Benser pouch case for travel.

My 1975 M5. Bought it in 2013, have put around 150 films through it since. Bit of light silvering around the corners, a few scratches on the baseplate. That's about it. Can't say it's been used hard, though.
