I'd like to swap out the top plate with the old 'Leica AG' script on top. Ideally I'd prefer the M2/M3 engraving (Leitz/Wetzlar), but it seems like you can only get the newer 'Leica Camera AG Solms Germany' script nowadays.

I'm always game to shoot. Let me know next time you're in town and available.

BTW - We should meet up and go shoot sometime! I live in OC but I work in LA so I'm usually there during the week.
If it's the camera show I went to last year, that's a huge waste of time (IMHO). Only plus side is the fact there's a Portillos right down the street!

Now that Leica has returned back to Wetzlar, maybe it's possible to order a top plate with Wetzlar instead of Solms? I'd write to their customer service department directly in Germnay and ask: [email protected]

Did you get the CLA done locally? Good job?

ps Love the floor. I can imagine various shades of yellow, brown, and green!

Just shot them an email. Suppose it doesn't hurt to ask, thanks!

The new M-A has a Wetzlar script which is loads better looking than the 'Leica Camera AG Germany' script from the M9P and the last few years

(not my photo)


In reality, I still want them to engrave it like my M2's. Seeing as I'm paying for it, I don't see why this isn't possible and that's the frustrating part. I'm even okay with the newer style font.

I got a friend who brought my lens to a Hong Kong master, he has been doing CLA for my friend for many years.

You are pretty spot on with the tile colours!
