New M-A limited edition

http://www.leicashop.com/brandnew_de...eica-shop.html

Check it out
Super rare and priceaaay. I like the painting, wish the lens would
Share the same design. I don't like the hotshoe btw... not classic enough for such a camera.

I'm getting a sense of déjà vu – I'm sure this edition was announced a year or so ago because I seem to remember discussing the MR-4 meter and the possibility that Leica might reissue a limited run to cash in on the then interest in the M-A. I don't personally share the enthusiasm for the hammertone finish but it does look beautifully made and I'm sure others will get $30,000 worth out of this kit.

For fun I wanted only Leicameter MR Hammertone for my M-A , never obtained that.

I prefer the M in black, frankly. I think my black M4-2 with MR-4 meter on it would look even nicer with a black Noctilux-M 50mm fitted. That's a body that cost me $800 fitted with a $10,000 lens... A different kind of "special."

Leicashop has been trying to sell that for several years now. The camera is gorgeous, but the finish on the lens does not match.
I guess they refurbished the MR-4 meter.

Hi,

Buy a good looking one and get it rebalanced etc. Most of them don't need much done to them, based on chatting to the firm who did several for me dating back to the 1930's.

Regards, David

Not sure I see the attraction of that combo. The hammertone finish won't make your photos any better. Of interest only to the collector who wants one of everything.

...wait! Is the MR4 meter available new in this matching color?

The page title says "Brand New Cameras" .

I'm not finding it on BHphoto or through a google search.
Must be a No.

No, refurbished and repainted, or as they put it"

"and reworked Leica Meter MR-4 in grey hammer tone finish"

It will if you are taking shots of MC Hammer and Tone Loc.
