leicavit M on M4-P Problem

Recommended Posts

Advertisement (gone after registration)

Its my understanding from general information and the instruction book that came with a recently received mint in the box leicavit M, that it is suppose to fit the Leica M4-P. This one just won't go on the camera. I can see no damage to the Leicavit body or my camera body, but it just seems a tiny bit too short in length to go down onto the body at the latch end. My regular baseplate fits on smoothly.

Am I doing something wrong or is this an issue in general.

thanks,

Robert

It fitted mine very well, except for one thing: The vulcanite covering around the round 'hanging' stud went too far down. Leica fixed it for me.

I wondered if that is the problem. What did they do to fix it? Replace the vulcanite or trim it or what?

I had two Leicavit-M with M4-P combinations -- one in chrome and one in black. In both cases, the Leicavit was a "snug" fit. More snug on the M4-P than on an M7 or MP. First time on required distrubing forcefulness. Once on and off a few time it seemed to fit easier. Either that or I got accustomed to the snugness. I used the M-Motor on the M4-P as well, but I don' recall the same tight fit with that.
