    The love for chrome, show off yours !!!

    Hello,
    Who else love Leica chrome/silver stuffs? I buy them silver whenever I have a chance too bad, they don't make a lots of them anymore (Ie: Can't buy 35mm Lux ASPH LFE in chrome)
    Please show your silver gears!!!
    I want to shown off mine, even the case is silver too

    I suppose you could always buy the Titanium M9 and use the lens that comes with it. Not chrome but a closer match than black.

    Yes, very much so....I had been looking for a good deal on a film M, and given the M2's near identical styling to the MP, coupled with my fav frameline set (35/50/90) in a clean, nearly mint package, I went for it and saved about 2K in the process....compared to an MP...just wish I had a built in meeter, but I have a sekonic for quick use....

    Of course, it would have to be Italian and made of unobtainium...

    I bought it brand new at a very old camera store that closed down, it was the owner personal belonging... I love it a lot and hunt for another one but unable to find it anywhere, yes, it is made in Italy.
    If anybody can find it please share!
    Thanks

    Forgot to add, The original price tag on the case was $450 but I bought it clearance sale for only $80

    1966 M2, KS-15(4) US Army. This is a version of the M2 built for the US Army that had the M4 style take-up spool. Unlike most of that batch, this camera appears to have never been used. I've handled a lot of M2s, this one looks like it just came off the production line yesterday. It is simply exquisite.

    It's been fitted with the IXMOO-Rapidwinder, it is the very first production unit, #1 out of 100 that were built.
