    M2 because I like the 35mm framelines and the smoothness. It's a real joy to use. I can vouch that the m4-2 is indeed the worst built leica. Mine has needed 4 different repairs in that last 12 months. Repairs alone cost me more than the camera.

    MP - Black Paint

    I'd opt for the MP, because well... that's what I ended up getting. I got it because I wanted a camera that I knew I would keep/use forever. Great camera, love the shutter - it doesn't create any movement of the solidly built body. It's dead simple to use, even re-loading film. I can actually load it faster than my Voigtlander R4A!

    MP cost you twice as much as any m4 or m2. And that's including a CLA from DAG or Sherry.
    Stop worrying about grain, resolution, sharpness, and everything else that doesn't have a damn thing to do with substance.

    If I had to question myself I wouldn't buy one.

    Hi

    In UK there is a 20% differential between a M2 and M4 (typically) and a used MP > 3x differential between serviced M2 and MP.

    Many people will need a quick load kit with M2, but the kit is not that expensive or difficult to get.

    Some people prefer two take up spools.

    But the more deliberate loading of M2 verses a M4 or MP is only a problem with Gatlling gun style shooting...

    P.S. Many people into cine film or other bulk 35mm wont find the MP chassis acceptable, no IXMOO

    P.S. If you wear glasses, you should probably go for a 0.58 viewfinder.[/QUOTE]


    Hi,
    sorry for my total ignorance about issue, but why if one wear glasses it's better 0,58 viewfinder?

    I think with glasses better is to have 0.85, not 0.58

    Thanks, Darko. But I still do not understand why.
    Is it because there is less distance between the viewfinder and the image-plane?

    Has the OP purchased an M camera yet?
    Why the one year delay between Posts?-Dick
