M5

M5 and 90mm f2 Summicron with Luigi case and soft release. Covering the M5's rather chunky loins with some of Luigi's finest leather does wonders and the largish 90mm Summicron suits its looks!

(who says they're ugly?)

Whom indeed? Sweet case as well. I wasn't aware Luigi made M5 cases.

Just curious, what wonders does the Luigi case do?

Meet the family.
M6, M5, CL, IIC.
A couple of changes have taken place since this photo;
I sold the current 50 cron to a fellow RFF member in favor of the elmar M, the chrome M5 went to DAG for a third lug and battery upgrade, and the CL is now for sale to make way for a M4-2.
Its a good thing that I have my assistant to help out with all this stuff!

I am considering to send my black 3 lug M5 to some place for CLA. Could u let me know the cost at DAG?

BTW the chrome M5 with the summicrom on is really a beauty.

Roundg;
DAG does a 3/4 and a full CLA. A 3/4 starts at around 200.
Sherry did a full CLA on my black M5 and also replaced the rangefinder patch, which had small cracks. The total cost was not inexpensive, but worth it. Its like a new camera now. Both people are top notch (los dos grandes) for m5 service.
Thanks for the comments.

Thanks for the kind reply and info. My M3 is under some 3/4 CLA in DAG now. I will check with them about my M5. Currently my M5 (still with the L seal) works flawlessly. But some haze I can see in the VF.

Roland. Thanks

It's between this and the 50 lux for me. I like using both for different looks of course.

There's an inter-loper in the group! I'll soon be getting this Contax IIa and another one jsut like it, back from Henry Scherer.

I recovered the M2 and M3 with dark brown lizard embossed cowhide from Aki Asahi. The grip has been sold, and the M6 now lives in a brown Luigi 1/2 case.

MP with my 'new' late German made 35 'lux, iPhone snap. Yes, the original box says 'made in Canada' - so must have been left-over stock sent back from Midland to Leica in Germany.

, the lens engraving, test certificate and papers (glued to the bottom of the box) all confirm 'Made in Germany'. I did read somewhere that components left over from Midland might have been assembled back in Germany for the 75 'lux, but I don't know if this applied to other lenses too.
