Leica M2 my friend loaned me. © 2018 Tedwhite

Fit Zoom

This photograph is Copyright and may NOT in part or in whole be reproduced in any electronic or printed medium without prior permission from the photographer.

Notes:

When I asked if he had a leica my friend said sure. He knew I wanted borrow one.
Oddly, it works perfectly. Obviously, he is somewhat indifferent to cosmetics.

Lens is a 21/4 Super Angulon.

I love it! Now _THATS_ a Lieca I'd be willing to own. No worries about scratching it!

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.

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!

Heck, my own dinged and dented M4 looks like new compared to this one. It's really got some character. I gotta go use mine a lot more! Over the hills and far off...

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.
My bet:
We have a cinderella here...

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....

Self-made black paint M2. Here is the reason why you should spend $2500 to have an original black paint. :p

Looks like it would clean up really well . . . maybe could use a little help from Cameraleather.

That is a good looking Leica! Vulcanite is over rated anyway - and can be replaced with gaffers tape if needed.

If the internals are good...then who cares. The type of camera thiefs wouldn't even consider.

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!

Everybody usually wants a mint Leica, but here, everybody wants a "whatever-is-remaining-of-this-camera-Leica".

And my friend still has it and the Super Angulon. I tried to buy it. No dice.
