Yes but I couldn't call it "new". New model yes but there is nothing "new" about it.

Sure it is. All of the parts are made new and assembled into a new camera. It might not have any new technology in it, but it's still new.
The MP had nothing new, yet it was a new camera when it was released, and is still available new. If you think about it, no M since the M3 has had new technology, it has all been available on other cameras well before on any M.
A light meter in 1990, wow. Autoexposure in 2000, wow again. Hardly new technology.

These are as close to ideal as I can afford. A black paint MP3 is my dream. I had these two MPs modified to be as close as possible. Black paint, vulcanite, black frame counter, M3 style rewind, and only 35/50/90 framelines.
What would I change? I'd happily lose the meter and have the shutter release changed to the one-stage release of the M3/2/4. I've considered sending them in to have this done.

The M-A feels new and tight, as a new camera should. My perfect condition CLA-d M3s, M4, M5 do not feel like that. So yes, everything is new with the M-A.


My perfect Ms are the ones I have , which is why I have them.

Something made with magnesium alloy like the Typ 262 was.

Why they'd been keeping the bricks so heavy (and soft, dent-prone) is beyond me...

I sold an M3 with a .85 finder when I worked at B&H. Now that I think about it, if I shot more of the 35mm focal length and didn't have an 8 element 35/2 with goggles then I'd have an M2-R with a .85 finder and *that* would be really perfect.

Thanks for the M-D recommendation.
I looked at the M-D and the M10.
I liked them both.
I bought the M10.

this is what i want the 262 version of the m10 to be like:

- remove the iso dial, use the stepped edge like the m9, add a round button next to the shutter button for changing iso with the rear dial
- aluminum covers to reduce weight
- remove the focus button, add touch screen functionality
- remove frameline preview lever
- remove brightness sensor
- remove red dot, use small screw cover instead (not the big one)
- add classic top plate engraving

I'd love an MD version of the M10 with separate frame lines for 28, 35 and 50mm only. Exposure compensation where the ISO currently is and ISO (with an auto setting) on the rear as per current MD.

Nice to have blue-tooth built in so you could pair with a phone app to change settings instead of button mashing on the camera.

Black paint of course!!

- Not that I've been giving it much thought!!

(I already have my ideal film M's - a custom chrome and black repaint M2)
