Hmm, must be the color of my next car!

it's neat to see all the different cameras, in various states of use, with their lenses and accessories. kinda like a self-portrait.

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

This is my gear. Most of the time I use the 50mm DR and of course the M4, for thats the only Leica I have.

1) Summilux 35mm f1.4
2) Summicron 50mm f2.0
3) Summicron 90mm f2

M4 + Mr-4 meter

Bye,

Olivier

OK, here it is. unpacked and ready to roll!

It's a new experience to me. I actually thought it's smaller than my contax IIa - but it's slightly LARGER! It has an excellent viewfinder indeed, but it is NOT more silent than the Contax.
Anyway, i'm looking forward to using it. And to the results.

You are all going to hate me for saying this, but the black ZM lenses I have pefectly match my new Black Paint MP. The black paint itself is very similar (Camera not being too shiny), then the red and white markings also match. The silver rim to the ZM lenses also perfectly matches the silver shutter depression on the camera too. I mean perfect match......

My digi camera is broken otherwise I would send some shots. I did not buy the compbo with looks in mind but could not believe how good the match was...much better than orange markings on the leica black lenses (not paint ones which I realise are red and white) against the red on the BP MP. I went to a black luigi half case and again, it looks incrdible.

The only thing I can imagine looking even better would be a black MP3 LHSA with regular BP leical lenses (personally nopt a great fan of the retro LHSA lenses, esp considering the bulky lens hood).

I agree that the ZM Black Paint lenses look quite fine on Black Paint M bodies. I particularly like the 21mm/2.8 Biogon ZM and Zeiss Finder and the 25mm/2.8 Biogon ZM on my 0.58X body, though they work even better than they look.

I bought a 28,35,50 ZM along with as new 90 Elmarit M and an pleased as punch. Would like a second MP body to have a different speed mono film...I dont really want an identical BP MP body but cannot imagine the black ZM lenses will match the silver MP at all. Reckon I will have to steal a BP MP3 body. Black lenses suit the Hammertone MP?

Cool M5+28mm M-hexanon

Someday I'll learn how to take product photos. Until then, this will have to suffice.

I have no problem so far with the standard covering that many refer to as "sandpaper like."

If I ever recover it (hopefully not for many many years if ever), I would probably put authentic leather of some sort on it though.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE MY Black Paint MP. Im super bummed about scratching the top plate after a few days of ownership, but its a sweet camera. I like it more than my M7 (which is at Leica for repair) and it just feel right. I do not mind the covering at all. I actually like it.

I just like the chrome regardless of the model. The covering is ok, it could have been nicer.

I also like the covering on my black MP, it provides an excellent, non-slip grip. Aesthetically, it has an understated, modern look. Nothing wrong with it at all.

I prefer the real, classic vulcanite - on the body and the lens. Now, if my wife would wear it, I'd really have something.

I've been wondering how taping a Leica will deter someone from stealing it. If they know Leicas they will know it even if it is taped.

In my case, the taping is mostly because I like the camera to look all black and more stealthy. My M4-p is quite beat up and crappy looking, so I figure that it doesn't look very appealing.

Anyway, crime, including theft, has been outlawed in Denmark

It's outlawed here too but that doesn't stop the criminals. They just keep stealing.

It's just one of a few that I brought back from Romania last year from a film shoot I was on. I don't intend to spend it. I keep a few bills from most of the places I travel to simply because I think they are nice looking. I just made this little still life with my MP, Passport and the Romanian bill, because PJ travel-style photography is what interests me most, and it's what I think of when I look at my Leica.
