    The new Black paint cameras seem to have chrome hot shoes and shutter shrouds. I think this even happened later on in the original black paint cameras.

    I think the later black paint M4s had chrome shutter shrouds. Haven't seen chrome hotshoe other than on the M6. Perhaps the M5?

    Jack, You need to wear a classic tux with that cigar, and the new BP MP. Best wishes! Mango

    PS. Is anyone using Shintaro these days? I hear he has some communication issues.

    PPS. A belated thanks for inviting me to this fine forum.

    All these black paint pictures! Here's my chrome MP with rigid 50mm summicron. Actually took this pic a while ago in case I decide to sell it. I just couldn't bring myself even though 99.9% of the time it's the M8 in use.

    When will Leica do a M8 a la carte? Can you imagine a black paint M8, MP style?

    I used to think it would be impossible to make a sexier looking camera than the original M6 … until the MP.

    We like chrome… though BP is nice too… best buy one of each

    Not until demand drops. Might explain why there's no a la carte SL so I made my own by replacing the black SS dial, film speed dial and ST lever with parts from the Leicaflex Standard:

    I like black paint finish on M's, but I have to admit, the chrome MP with a chome lens, is VERY sexy and looks more retro than the BP... Dammit, now I need another one!

    Yeah BP is beautiful with a chrome lens on it ...but you would have to be on drugs to own an example of both wouldn't you?
