    M8 base plate?

    Well, wouldn't you know it? I was just sitting here taking the battery out of my M8 and dropped the base plate. The camera is fine, but it dented the baseplate on one edge. I pushed the dent out and it goes back on fine, BUT I am a bit OCD about my cameras and I would like to know if I can buy a new baseplate for the M8? thanks and Merry Christmas morning!

    Maybe it's time to substitute the Luigi base plate with battery and SD card doors? I expect that one may buy the genuine article from Leica if one wishes.

    I got a parts price once on the baseplate, it was more than the price of the M8 grip. Maybe you could try one of those instead.

    Thanks guys. I may have to live with it. I have done my best to repair it and most people would not notice it. But I will!

    I think it would make me cukoo, too. I suspect a very high percentage of OCD in members here. Obviously I include myself.

    They were over $300 from the parts department in NJ when the M8 came out. I had replaced my original with the M8 grip plate and left the original at a vacation house ..then I bought a Luigi case and needed the original. You can order directly and pay full retail or you can have any dealer order it for you.
