Yes its a Luigi case and strap. I picked it up for a good price with the intention of keeping the strap and selling the case but there were no takers on here and I'm now quite attached to it so decided to keep it.

^ Love the Konica

Heck, why not an MP3 or M6J instead
M6J are plenty around, and not so expensive anymore, below 100万円。

A little expensive! 50万円 is the going price for a body/lens set these days
Right, I forgot that the dollar is down to 78円 and prices in 円 have been adjusted accordingly.

Hey, who says a chrome MP is excessive? I love mine but have often thought of going ga ga and looking for an anthracite MP. Just because it is ..."excessive"! Jon, you NEED something excessive to match the qualities of the black SP2005. Unlike me, you will likely never feel the need to own a succession of Leica M bodies, so why not go crazy and get an M6J or an MP3, or my favorite, the Japan-only anthracite MP.

C/V body cap arrived today. Now, what to put it on?

You blokes must be in some kind of good business. Whatever it is, I wanna be in it. I mean, dropping 1mil for a camera? Sheesh! I'd have to save for 2-3 years for that kind of dough.

No kidding! I'll have to pay off my student debts before I start saving. The other day I was approached by an expat while waiting for my train who inquired about my M2 and 50 'cron, only to be left with my jaw wide open when he pulled out his M9/Noctilux.

This is the photo he took with the aforementioned setup.

I just wish I had the kind of cash-flow to persuade him to sell it to me. it'd just been returned from a complete DAG overhaul, it is beautiful - absolutely beautiful. Oh and he had his BP MP there as well, i much preferred the M4 though... not that it really matters, either way

Don't be too impressed by that M9. Them digis will keel over long before your M2 ever will. Trust me on this. I tell you what, I'd rather be fondling and doing all sorts with your M2 than that bloody M9.

I'm not really a big fan of the MP, to be honest. Try as I might, it's never turned me on. But that M4...Mmmm...hubba..hubba!

Geez, you blokes get around a lot. I might head out there tomorrow as it's a public holiday.

And in case anyone's wondering what the hell a Focomat is, see this post on TCS. There's a pic of the thing.

In the picture is a Focomat V35, now he was offering Focomat that can do up to 6x6 ( type II ?) for 32万円.

Well, there's only one way to find out.

Personally, as much as I like the anthracite MP (as much for its look as its exclusivity) my chrome MP with chrome pre-ASPH 35 Summicron is perfect to these eyes.

Happy hunting-wel enjoy following these exploits.
