My other M3 re-skinned.
This one had most of the vulcanite covering flaked off from years of use.

Colyn,

I hope you realise, you have kick-started one of the most popular threads in the rangefinder-world. 'Camera & Coffee' thread, beware!!!

10 years in Uncle Sam's Boat Army and I never got a taste for coffee. Tea has been my drink since I can remember.

Serious? Thirteen years in Blighty, and tea is still not my cup.

Not to mention sharpness and bokeh which are technical part of it and we all know it is perfect, now combine excellent sharpness, contrast, bokeh, tonality, texturity, sparkle, smoothness, size, build, beauty!!! well yeah and the price

This is a shot in the dark but im willing to bet your m7 is the one that doesn't have the mp finder in it which cuts flaring. You might want to have it sent in for a finder upgrade (after you spend so much on it of course)

there's isn't a clean cutoff number, but it is roughly 2885xxx. the flare fix only makes it more resistant, though.

Here is my new MP-3 with the old syle XOOIM hood on the new/old style 50mm 1.4 asph lux. I like the looks better than the new hood that came with the camera.
What do ya think?
