Brian Sweeney 02-23-05 3:25 AM That Vulcanite can be replaced for $25 or so. I see a little haze on the VF; a CLA would take care of it.Black paint over chrome, the chrome looks good! no big deal. One terrific wide-angle lens.You have a good friend.
JoeFriday 10-11-05 7:51 PM I think Todd meant, there's a little chip OF vulcanite... that's the kind of camera you could leave on a park bench and come back an hour later and pick up off the grass where somebody moved it so they could sit down.. no worries about theft!
sanmich 08-29-08 4:59 AM Yana what?
this camera hasn't necessary went through a lot of use.
Dry vulkanit can chip off badly on a beautifull camera. And the BP over chrome is known not to stick around too much.
We have a cinderella here...

crawdiddy 08-29-08 2:55 PM - Rated it: 10 Beauty is only skin deep.
But ugly goes all the way to the rf patch, slow shutter speeds, baffles, flssh sync, take-up spool, self-timer mechanism, pressure plate, frame counter....
Koni Kowa 03-6-10 5:37 AM Self-made black paint M2. Here is the reason why you should spend $2500 to have an original black paint. :p

Phil_F_NM 11-1-13 9:54 AM What a beauty! Just broken in, to be sure.
Rob-F 12-8-13 4:19 PM Looks like it would clean up really well . . . maybe could use a little help from Cameraleather.
Tom A- Likes this Photo ! 12-25-13 11:08 AM That is a good looking Leica! Vulcanite is over rated anyway - and can be replaced with gaffers tape if needed.
zuiko85- Likes this Photo ! 01-14-14 2:07 AM If the internals are good...then who cares. The type of camera thiefs wouldn't even consider.
news shooter 01-17-14 5:32 PM like Tom A said, maybe gaffers tape, cloth black or how about wood grained contact paper? Ya know, trailer trash. Diamond plate stick on foil would be a good redneck option. Last but, not least, mossy oak break up!
