I found a good deal on an M4-P last week, and it should get here in the next few days! I'll post some photos when it arrives...

a few from a quick 10min walk through the city (literally half a block, from the car to a job and back again)

I acquired a few books very cheaply a while ago too, given its Leica's 100th birthday this year, the red 50yr book may be worth a bit now

I like the B&W shot Echo, and nice books as well!

My M4-P arrived today! The front and top are blacked out, and the red dot has been removed. It also has the MP anti-flare viewfinder upgrade, an M3-style lens release guard and the 75/135 framelines have been masked out. I haven't had a chance to shoot with it yet, as I just loaded my last roll of Tri-X in my M3 a few days ago. Looks like I'll be waiting until B&H opens next week now...

Here's a shot of it with my M3:

Very nice camera, with some interesting upgrades
It still has the 28, 35, 50 and 90 framelines?
I would love to find a 1982 M4-P (the year i was born) - but it would probably be a shelf queen, so i cant really justify it

Thanks! It already has every mod that I would have done, plus I didn't have to pay extra for them, so I'm quite happy with it!

Thanks! Yes, it has the regular 28/90, 35 and 50 framelines, but the 35 and 50 are alone. I'm happy with this, as I would use a 90 over a 75, and my M3 has a better finder for 135 if I ever decide to use one.
This happens to be a 1982 camera! My birth year Leica is a '93 M6, but I can't see that happening anytime soon now...

If i ever find a '93 M6, we will have to swap !
Until then, enjoy the M4-P - its a much nicer looking camera without the red dot in the grip

Haha, indeed! I agree about the dot, it doesn't really bother me on the M6 and later cameras, but I'm not a big fan of it on the M4-P.

Yeah, unfortunately, not only does E-6 film itself cost more than C-41, developing costs are also higher than C-41, and you've got to be able to find a place that actually develops E-6 as well, since there are less and labs that do it these days.

I think it's definitely worth a try though. I still remember when I got my first roll of slide film back, looking at the actual slides themselves, and just being amazed at the colours and what I was seeing. It's still a pleasure to look at the slides; the scanned, digital version of a slide photo just doesn't have that magic about it.

I do know of a local lab that will develop E-6, so I'll give it a try sometime soon! A roll of Provia costs around $24 with tax from any of the local stores, so it'll probably happen when I make my next order from B&H.

^I'm personally finding not worth it to shoot E-6 on 35mm anymore.
I tend to go for C-41 now, Portra 400 and Gold 200 specifically as they produce excellent color scans from 35mm cameras for half the developing cost of E-6.
I just finished scanning my last 35mm Velvia 50 and Provia 100s and I have no plans on restocking, still have 2 400X but I'm just freezing it for now.

I'll keep shooting E-6 in 120 though as looking at a 6x6 or 6x9 slide is just amazing.

I've actually gone the other way; I shoot a LOT of 35mm slides these days; much more than colour neg. I bought 100 rolls (mostly 35mm Provia 100F, but also some 120 Provia and 35mm Velvia, Sensia, and 64T Ektachrome). Cost me ~$2.50/roll. Developing myself runs ~$3/roll.

Once I burn through this, I'll probably cease shooting 35mm slides. But as noted, 120 slides are just too gorgeous to miss.
