Here is mine, second version from 1959, with Leicavit and Summaron 35mm f/2.8 also from 1959.

A beautiful camera, working like a chronometer, and still with its black "L" seal.

This is what the mailman brought yesterday...

Leica M2 (1958, still sealed and works buttery smooth!) with Leica-Meter MR.

 

Enjoy!

 

Cheers, Z.

Time for a thread bump.

 

New, as of yesterday, from our friend in Barton Arcade Manchester.

Big birthday next year as this is from a batch of 850 : 22/07/1959.

 

First film through already and I can still use a light-meter I found.

 

 

 

P.S. Should I crop as indicated ?

:D

Wlifredo,

 

You will never, ever, regret it. A little trick - when setting the frame counter, load the camera and cock the shutter about 50%, and then set the frame counter to -2. The gears disengage and the counter disk moves freely. Then wind on fully (twice) and make pictures.

 

Cheers,

 

Michael

Thanks for that I hadn't heard of that before. On loading I've just found a BNIB (new old stock) rapid load adapter. It is amazing what there is out there.

This one I really enjoyed !!

) but found it to give wrong readings (about one stop under-exposure). Can it be easily adjusted ?

      After two months working with the M I can say: I love my M.
      It sounds wonderful. It feels wonderful. Takes great pictures. And also thanks to Luigi it looks great!

      Not sure I can "love" a mechanical object but, in the spirit of the forum, I thought I ought to start a new thread for Leica's new film camera. (In truth, I think the M-A is really a variation of the MP rather than a different camera but I suppose Leica would like us to see it differently). It is certainly a handsome camera and, strangely, the M-A also feels a very modern camera.

      ...open thread
      Since I did not see any thread "I love my (Leica) M7" I'll open one, if you agree.
       
      My M7, I mean my 2 M7, make me great service and to thank this camera for services rendered, I start to post you a picture of my latest
      acquisition, instead of a M240. I "became allergic" to digital photos (edges and "smooth"* lines, "synthetic images"* for some pictures, "flat"
      and "without consistency" * "perfectible color" (compared to film), all of this brings me to leave my two Leica M digital more and more at home,
      now used as back up and my 2 M7 become my main camera, they accompany me everywhere even at 12,000 Kms from here.
      Each M7 has its attached lens , with one camera b&w film, and the other color film !
       
      Here's a photo of my M7, that I just prescribe for me as "anti-allergic"digital image !

      I just bought fifty rolls of Kodak Portra (160 and 400) , and my supplier at Paris told me that this film works very hard, he sells a lot.
      Film is not dead !

      ... now that we had the "I love my MP, M6, M7" but what about the "under-dog", the black-chrome M4-P ?
      Hello guest! Please register or sign in to view the hidden content. Hallo Gast! Du willst die Bilder sehen? Einfach registrieren oder anmelden!  
      The first Leica having a VF with 6 frame-lines, a motor-drive or rapid-winder can be attached, all M-lenses with or without googles (including the DR Summicron) and the Super-Angulon-M can be used without restrictions. Isn't it the most versatile and at the same time puristic camera Leica ever made ?
