Wouldn't the M-A be one of the best film M ever built? I don't see much love on this forum for the M-A and I always wondered why. I don't have one, but as soon as Leica announces that they will stop producing it (which they certainly will very soon), I'll buy one. Hard to justify almost $5k for a film camera, I know.
the MA sucks, actually
my friend's MA shows issues after about one year
and he found out that, Leica use the same chassis of the MP for the -new-MA
They just cover the battery compartment with a piece of brass and over the time, it gets oxidised.
IMO Leica did really bad job here and it shows that their film cameras are not sold very well as expected.
