They just cover the battery compartment with a piece of brass and over the time, it gets oxydised.
IMO Leica did really bad job here and it shows that their film cameras are not sold very well as exepcted.
Can't see the image. Can you repost it? I tried to view it on my iphone and my mac with no luck.
I think it is really obvious that the M-A is the MP w/o the meter, so why would Leica create a new chassis? It's the exact same camera but with no electrics and a better set of frame lines. I have no issues w mine.
