    I cannot recommend Aki Asahi enough. Nothing but great experiences with him on three orders.

    Thanks to all who responded. While cameraleather.com has a wider range of offerings, past practices argue for caution. That said, aki-asahi will get the nod. So...a nice blue F2 is in the future (possibly an F3HP/MD4 as well...although bright red is also a possibility...).
    An assortment of F-series Nikons with quite a few Nikkors, a pair of M6s with some Leitz glass, a pair of 500c/ms with a wide range of Zeiss optics and, just to help keep Duracell solvent, a D800.

    Favourite films: (1). KE ("Kodachrome Era"): 35mm: PKM25 and PKR64, HP5/Tri-X; 120: PKR64, PanF, FP4. (2). PKE ("Post-Kodachrome Era"): (a) 35mm: E100G, HP5 Plus/Tri-X and Delta 3200; (b) 120: E100G, PanF Plus, FP4 Plus, TMax 100.

    Morgan Sparks, Cameraleather.com

    I ordered leather for my Contax RTS II and paid via PayPal on Oct. 27th. On Nov. 10th, having heard nothing I emailed to get a status report. Morgan replied on the 11th. that it would take 15 days to ship but would send me shipping date next day. Nothing. On Dec. 16th. I asked again. On Dec 17th. I asked for a reply. Nothing. I have just sent an email asking (woefully) for my money back. Is this guy or his company dead? Any info on this or have I just been suckered?

    Experiences seem to vary, but I've had good experience with Morgan and Cameraleather.com. I've received numerous coverings and even sent him my M3 to recover because I didn't feel up to removing the vulcanite. All handled in a timely manner, although I understand that others have had less satisfactory outcomes.

    I've also used Aki Asahi and his turnaround is phenomenal, but a very limited selection of surfaces. In fact, the one he used to offer which I like the best (for Leicas) is no longer offered.
