Usage brassing is near impossible to replicate as it's so irregular. This looks like it's been aged a little. The problem with ageing a repaint is that the brass underneath is always too bright and shiny for the age of the camera that's usually painted ie m2,3 and 4's.
I've only ever seen 2 lenses painted that looked original and they were done by an ex Wetlar employee.
This still looks nice though.

The lens and camera are both re-painted.
Even it looks exactly like the original, they are still re-painted, no doubt about that.
Lenses come and go

People, don't "brass" your rig with sandpaper or a nail file. We can tell. Brass it by using the hell out of it. By product: you might become a great photographer.

For some reason this is one of my most viewed pictures on flickr. Possibly because of the lens attached.

Aesthetically speaking those Zeiss / Voigtländer lenses with the bright chrome hood bayonet do look well balanced on the chrome bodies - more so than on black bodies unless the hood is attached.
Very versatile fast compact lens the 40 Nokton - it took me a while to get beyond all the internet pros and cons ... and just try one ; glad I did - I really like it.
It's the weird colour scheme that freaks me. Every time you try to operate one of these weird black controls, which are labeled in black on a black background, a small black light lights up black to let you know you've done it.

Ahhhhh the Rotring 600 (mine is black and brassing nicely)
