So many beautiful tools I use without knowing they are beautiful 😉.

Black Chrome M-A?

or a Black Paint MP?

Neither. To me the most beautiful is the silver M-A. 😜

Of the black ones, I think the black paint looks better when it's clean, but the black chrome has the edge when you use it a lot, as it's more fingerprint-resistant.

Between the two mentioned, my vote is for the black paint MP - back in 2003, a black paint MP was my first M camera.

But the most beauteous of all is the titanium M-A. 😍

One of the early M-As where Leica's QC process missed that someone by mistake used the MP shutter speed dial.  The correct M-A dial does not have an Off position...

There is so little to check on this camera it is quite remarkable how stuff like this gets missed.  But as long as they stick in that little hand signed inspection card...

This M-A left the factory as a regular black chrome camera !

Or I missed something 😉

You had an MP black paint top-plate replace the M-A one?  But kept the M-A hotshoe?

Yes and yes . Ear lugs and counter dial from the M6 Millenium . 

IRRC the MP shutter speed dial needs some filing/tweaking to fit properly on a  M-A.

I love the smell of black paint in the morning.   It smells of a hole in the bank account.

This camera to me is one of the most beautiful ones but I tried using it in the store and neither me nor the person selling it had a clue how to use it ahah
