Leica M4-P Everest w. 50mm Summicron by Abram Goglanian, on Flickr

Here's my current film M (I recently sold my M2). It's the M4-P everest which I picked up here. It's not the most collectable of M bodies, but it's definitely one of the most usable .

Pretty happy with it so far, plus it's in fantastic condition for being an early model. (Hopefully it doesn't stay that way for long!)

And to be honest, the tape is just on there because I didn't care of the abundance of branding on the camera. I also happened to like just the Everest logo, makes it visually interesting. It'll probably all peel off after a few months anyways.

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.

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.

As I'm thinking of repainting mine, I stopped and read this post. Then I saw something out of the corner of my eye, behind you. Some non-descript mountain -- wait a minute, Mt. Everest, and Nuptse.

Leica M8.2 two lens kit by teknopunk.com, on Flickr

My first digital Leica and I cannot make myself selling it.
It has been my daily user for a few years but sees little actual use now.
My favorite on the M8 sensor has always been the 35 Summilux pre ASPH.

Crazy night in Bangkok , I lost that little rubber plug on my M6ttl (under the film advance lever) and then somehow I ended up with 2 Leica SL's..... I guess you win some and lose some.

If you're lucky you might be able to trade of of those SL's for a new rubber plug for your M6ttl!

I love the wear on your M6 btw. Beautiful.
