Leica Kit by Abram Goglanian, on Flickr

That's what I work with these days. I have a 90mm Summicron as well but I mostly only use that on a tripod for small product photos with the OUFRO adapter

Leica M6 (MP Lever, Black Dot, Cleared Engraving)
Leica M6 + VC 35mm f1.4 Nokton Classic by coloredsteel, auf Flickr
After saving up for some months, and selling my mountainbike, i finally was able to buy my first Leica!
Picked it up in Munich on monday. It's a completely different experience in comparison to my Canon AE-1P, which I lost on the train some weeks ago...
Hopefully it will be a good companion on many adventures to photograph graffiti on trains, or to explore lost places!

It's an MP Classic – a special edition commissioned by Schmidt for the Asian market in around 2005. It is meterless, like the M-A. It also has the exact same frame-lines as the M-A. It's a terrific camera. I owned one a few years ago (mine was even nicer, having a black hotshoe too) and have since wished I hadn't sold it.

Such a nice camera, if only the ISO selection dial was like the M4 and the serial number was centered on the hot shoe it would be perfect!

Do you have the matching summicron?

No I was only interested in the camera, Michael. I prefer to use old lenses or ASPH. not in the middle hahaha.

I would love to put that covering on my MP or at least get the covering for the M-A. I just really don't like the sharkskin haha.

"Edit: How do I post flickr-pictures here? With "Insert Image" and the link it doesn't work *fixed, thanks helen!"

For future reference of anyone not sure (the question comes up a lot). The easiest way is as follows. Open Flickr in a browser then open the relevant image and on the lower right of the page you will find there are a series of links to tools, one of which looks like a curved arrow. Select this tool, it's the tool for sharing an image.

When it opens you will find several options - select the one for BBCode which provides the proper code for sharing with the RRF then from the drop down menu that appears, select the size of the image you want to post (1024×760 or 1200×960 seem best for RRF ) then copy the highlighted HTML code that appears to your clipboard. Simply paste that HTML into your RRF post and you are done. Its easy when you know how.

My recently returned black chrome M4. Needed a new body shell as the original was cracked and glued back together. An MD-2 donated one but the self timer and frame selector were dispensed with as a result. Its had a hard life and may well have been a cruise ship photographer's camera originally (apparently a batch of black chrome M4s were actually bought for this purpose). Working ok now though just need time to put a film through it.

Thanks. I just wish I could find all filters in chrome, too.

The viewfinder is the CV 21/25mm metal viewfinder. I had the plastic CV 21mm before but the crooked lines drove me crazy (not level), so this one is a nice step up in terms of optical and build quality, and its smaller, too.

I'm getting some new skin for my MP, as well as having the 75/135 frames masked out so it's going to be lightly customized to my liking as I'll never be selling it anyways. I thought about having that done with the M-A as well, but honestly the 75/135 frames are just tiny dots on the M-A so it's easy to ignore.

I'll post up a pic when I get it back!

Who's masking off the frame lines for you? I've often thought about doing that as well so I have a less cluttered viewfinder like my old M2. Figured I'd have it done when I get around to swapping out the top plate.

Youxin offers that service, it's not too much on top of his already reasonable CLA price. My camera was working fine but it had been accumulating dust in the VF so I'm having him clean it out and reseal it. As well as other little things like tightening the film rewind knob so it doesn't spin loose if you let go.

Why are you swapping the top plate on your camera?

BTW - We should meet up and go shoot sometime! I live in OC but I work in LA so I'm usually there during the week.

My brother lives in Costa Mesa, and I see him about once a year. Be great to meet up on my next visit, perhaps timed for camera show in Buena Park.

I'd like to swap out the top plate with the old 'Leica AG' script on top. Ideally I'd prefer the M2/M3 engraving (Leitz/Wetzlar), but it seems like you can only get the newer 'Leica Camera AG Solms Germany' script nowadays.

I'm always game to shoot. Let me know next time you're in town and available.

If it's the camera show I went to last year, that's a huge waste of time (IMHO). Only plus side is the fact there's a Portillos right down the street!

Now that Leica has returned back to Wetzlar, maybe it's possible to order a top plate with Wetzlar instead of Solms? I'd write to their customer service department directly in Germnay and ask: [email protected]

Did you get the CLA done locally? Good job?

ps Love the floor. I can imagine various shades of yellow, brown, and green!

The new M-A has a Wetzlar script which is loads better looking than the 'Leica Camera AG Germany' script from the M9P and the last few years

(not my photo)


In reality, I still want them to engrave it like my M2's. Seeing as I'm paying for it, I don't see why this isn't possible and that's the frustrating part. I'm even okay with the newer style font.

I got a friend who brought my lens to a Hong Kong master, he has been doing CLA for my friend for many years.

You are pretty spot on with the tile colours!
