Congrats. I have a similar early M3, but without preview lever. After recent CLA it's more joy to use than my black M3 SS.

My M7 was delivered this afternoon by the FedEx Man.
- I Only wish I had a lens, but not-long until pay-day!

I'm happy it's finally here!

35mm Nokton f1.2

The thing has the ugliest focus ring I've ever seen.

Hi, Why should the Summi be modified for the M8?

The DR Cron interfere with the light baffle on the M8 I think. I remember that I cant lock the lens in on my M8

Hi Ron - the DR Summicron won't mount on the M8 because of the dual-range (close-focus) cam. As soon as that's shimmed off, it'll mount nicely - and it won't be a big deal since the goggles are long gone...

New entry,
for the series "I go to the shop to take max a pair of filters and a roll.."
She came dirty cheap, I mean, I got it reasonably cheap and it was dirty..
Some guy did an awful (because of the results unfortunately) work near the
eyepiece after, we supposed, a bump.
The fact is that he attached the eyepiece with silicone and
repainted the work with silver painting but he also covered
some brass spots near the straps lugs...

The viewfinder is clear, rangefinder unfortunately not very
contrasty niether in focus.
But it seem to be useable.
As I saw her it's like I fell in love..

She has just some problems with slow times > 1/8 that some
times goes just like 1/125 but the salesperson said that if it
continues he repairs it free of charge.

She's a 1967 M4:





I also got a Leicameter MC that is not working, I disassembled it and
rebuilt in it's original shape.

Sure is a beauty, but how is focussing? I recall that in the past several focussing problems were reported with this lens.

Very unfortunatly not the best picture possbile since it was taken with my iPhone.

Here she is, my Leica MP Anthracite plus my second love : the Noctilux.

Couple of snaps I took today with el-cheapo Kodak run-of-the-mill-film that the lab had ( I'm on a small town with 1 photo lab )

Still was fun
