Always a good idea to point your Leica with wide open lens straight at the sun In full sunlight that could burn through your shutter very fast.

It was stopped down and pointing at a tree. It is not direct sunlight. I know the rules.

My trusty M7 having lunch in San Francisco about a month ago. 50 'Cron, A&A Silk Strap (love it BTW!).



...and here's another day with that M7 chowing down again.

That big speed dial and the old-style M3 lever look to be made for each other!

I'd almost warm up to a TTL camera...

They're just a reminder as to how happy you'll be when yours is back and working.

Yep, another name for it is the XOOIM hood. Any ideas as to what it stands for?

Thanks Wes, yes, despite being worn pretty quick and rambling of some Leica users of how much better the older black paint was than the new black paint , it is my most liked finish.

Here is an older picture of the M8.2 - it was my daily shooter for a year.
This seems, to change now slightly, as at the moment, I use the M9 more (I guess, until the "new" rubs off).

The M8.2 is so pretty, makes me want one. Nice pictures of your babies

Worn in all the right places.

I wish my MP was BP.

@Kristian
Thanks ;-)
When I bought this camera second hand, it had a brassed corner of the on/off switch and a brassed edge on the base plate.
I took off the ugly base plate sticker and the white letters and used it daily ever since.
It is strange, how this black paint can make these cold boxes somehow dear to one self - I could not sell this camera!

Too bad, Leica switched to a different, matte paint (which seems more durable) on the M9. The M8.2 paint indeed almost looks like piano lacquer, when used for a while, as it get's some shine.

@Wes
No worries, your's will wear too, oh and it's not a written law, to forbid ownership of two MPs ;-)
The BP MP has been almost new, when I took that picture, but it surely will hold up better than the M8.2, as I shoot mostly digital (some recently acquired lenses might change that though ).

Yeah thats the reason I went for a chrome M9-P. I loved the M8.2 and was disappointed to see they went for a more durable black, especially when the lifespan of these cameras now are so short compared to film M's.

I guess Leica sees it as if they extend the used value of their cameras with less wear (more durable paint), they will increase the perceived overall value of the brand.

It's all marketing 101
