Your 50mm Summilux Hood fell off too? That really griped me when it happened to mine (when I still had the lens). Odd that it's held on by that one solitary screw. DAG provided me with a new screw to hold it tight though and it didn't happen again after that.

Beautiful combo otherwise!

A quick teaser of my newly acquired Leica M7 0.85 with updated MP finder. Still need a lens. Leaning toward a VM Nokton 50/1.5 in chrome!

I know a few people this has happened to as well.

Yes, it is a conversion by Leitz made in the early seventies (the serial number is not from a batch of black cameras) made on demand to match a Noctilux 50mm f/1.2 . The paint type is the same as of a black M4.

The method of engraving the serial number is the giveaway: no spaces.

Those conversions are very rare, only a few were made, as the cost of them was astronomical.

The lens is an original black paint one, however.

Erik.

Damn it I want to have my IIIg repainted OD Green so bad. I really like my M3 with silver but would definitely want to do it in black maybe too. Maybe one day I'll have some cash laying around and can afford to send one of them to Kanto.

I love those Safari green or Khaki cameras, but I refuse to be driven by fashion.

There's a difference in doing it because it's a trend and doing it because you genuinely like it. I've always loved the green and black M cameras but I know I'll never be able to afford a real one and even if I could scrape the funds together I'd probably not want to use it as much. Hence the reason I'd love to have a repaint.

Legends never die - they became legends as they are forever like rotring pens, Nikon SP cameras or the single most amazing calculator ever created (no, not the iPhone).

The fun thing is that old gear will never get old, it just doesn't even get broken - and if it does, you just fix it.

That rotring 600 ball pen writes for me for more than 20 years and I am absolutely convinced it will still write just fine when the PCBs of that Leica M Mono are long dissolved into dust.

It might probably still be outlived by that Nikon SP body if someone takes good care of it after I am long dead
That very SP though is largely responsible for the fact that after I got it, the MM has not advanced a single frame ever since. Nikon RF's are just soooo gooood!

Running 1 st color roll already .. everything seem spot on ..
now its on bw roll

still choosing the right black lens... all black lens is chrome or shiny black paint like this hexanon

perhaps will try with Hexanon ltm 35mm with satin chrome.. perhaps

thanks .. a great M2 indeed

I've had a few updates over the last few months
7Artisans 50mm f1.1


Advance swapped to an M2 lever which feels much better.

I've never liked that two stage advance lever. M3/2 lever feels perfect for me too. If I ever pick up another M body as a backup/2nd body I'd love to get a beater M4-2/P and just swap off the advance levers for an M3/2 and call it a day.

Thanks! I use the PCcalc app on the phone.
All normal calculators are broken to me and I have troubles using them. HP RPN calcs are just so logical ;-)
