Had sold my M6 several years ago but missed having a Leica. Ended up getting 2. The M3 and M6TTL. Waiting on a lens for the M6 to get here but here is my M3.

Ok, I have an embarrassing question: what does Leica "DBP" stand for?

Thanks, I didn't know that! So that's the German version of "patent pending".

You will find on vintage Leica gear either DRP or later DBP.

Both mean that a patent has been officially filed and acknowledged at the then responsible government office (Patent Pending would only mean a patent has been filed but not yet acknowledged).

DRP stands for Deutsches Reichspatent (meaning German Empire Patent and was issued as such during the time of the German Reich of Nazi Germany)

DBP stands for Deutsches Bundespatent (meaning German Federal Patent and was issued in Western Germany after the founding of the German Republic after WW2)

Received this a few days ago. Pretty great to get a 30 something year old camera with an original box.

Heck, the box looks like it has more wear than the camera!

Beautiful camera but I am most interested in the lens........ Is that a version 1 35mm Summicron in black (or black paint)? A rare bird indeed

Looks like a 35 summilux pre asph in standard black (with a nice lens cap). The aperture tabs are quite distinctive, an the chrome mount is visible too.

Finally picked up a proper M-mount lens for my M3 last weekend.
Rather fetching combo, that can only be improved with a LeicaMeter on top instead of my crusty VCII

Yes you're right! It's the standard 35mm pre asph summilux. The lens cap came with the lens

When looking at the unpainted script though this comes to mind:

Have the script filled with a highly gloss black lacqer, which has a beautiful contrast in certain light yet stays nice blacked out and stealthy.
It has the benefit of not looking "unfinished" of an otherwise exquisite looking camera ;-)
I like this idea. It reminds me of the Shelby GT500 I wanted to order; Gloss black with flat black racing stripes, but this way in reverse.

This is a very clinical view of my M7, taken for a review of the camera. My other half says that I can forget getting free kit from Leica to test after writing that...

The above was a processed focus-stack, taken against a green mat to allow the background to be eliminated cleanly. In every sense it is about as far as I can get from images taken with the M7 itself :-)
