Maybe you can sell curtains as NOS then?
And have the rest upgraded to M8.2?

Terrific find!

Handsome M3 you have there, bennyng. What is the shutter button extension thing? I'm recovering my M3 and an original 50/2.8 Elmar is on it's way from an ebay victory!

It looks rather cool that way! How hard was it to remove the old covering? I am 'finally' getting a M3 and will change the covering in the not too distant future. I would go with some funky color as well

markE, what covering did you get for your M3? Be sure to show us when you get it recovered. I did my M2 last year and loved the results. The new covering helped to give the camera a much newer look matching better the new lens that it was sporting. It's probably the cheapest easiest cosmetic upgrade that one can do for a M.

My M3 recently back from a paint job thanx to Robert J. I still have the original top and bottom if I ever choose to go back to chrome--something tells me I won't. Robert did an excellent job. I highly reccommend him.

Bill, that M3 paint job looks great. I like the look of the chrome levers and knobs on the black camera body.

Leica did a limited run of these M8 Pandas (I was told 100 pieces). I got mine in March from Kurland in NYC. Same price as the standard black M8. Different finish than the black standard M8 has. Black paint of some sort, but not the gorgeous lacquer of the MP.

So that's how my M3 is going to turn out.

Robert and Youxin are doing the exact same thing to my M3... and I also have a DR Summicron.

I have a user M2 coming I'm sending to Robert and will go full restoration with everything black paint.

I have a Shintaro painted IIIf and even though the finish is different, the quality of the paint job is similar.

Robert already had the top and bottom painted. I sent the M3 last week and had it back Saturday.

So, why do folks call these anti-pandas?

Thanks! The extension on the shutter release button is an old M soft release. Got it off ebay for the fun of it. Not very practical in terms of handling, but looks nice.

I think your M3 is in much better shape than mine. With a collapsible Elmar-M 50mm f/2.8, it'll be a real looker!

Cheers,

Nice!!! I'm a real sucker for black cameras with silver/chrome dials/levers.

Do you have a picture of the top and the back as well? Would love to see the rest of the camera as well.

Cheers,
