The LHSA MP .72 HAMMERTONE arrives

   We have received a nice shipment of Leica Historical Society 
Hammertone MP .72 bodies and Leicavits. Enough to fill our back orders 
and finally offer to everyone, the LUG getting first crack as always...

  These cameras are not just lame "special editions" where the 
manufacturer uses rarity and new name as an excuse to raise the price.

Rather these are meticulously surfaced and re-created artworks. The 
photo I saw before receiving the Hammertone didn't do it justice.
  It is actually a "matte finish" dark grey camera, with chrome trim 
hardware, and a paint texture identical to the earlier hammertone 
cameras I have seen on display at a camera museam (...I have never owned 

  My guess is that this paint is significantly more resilient than the 
black paint of the last LHSA special edition. (black paint M6 TTL's)
  The engravings are all spot-on, with the script "Leicavit" engraved on 
the front of the Vit identical to the ones in the 60's.

  The price is not cheap at $3500 for the camera and $1100 for the vit, 
but with the recent price raises on the "regular run" MP's and M7's we 
have been able to put together a few Hammertone kits that made a lot of 
sense without spending all one's money.

  We have only a few that are not allocated to customers yet, so please 
call early if you are interested in this camera.

Minilux BLACK, rare, Mint condition, superb 40mmf2.4 lens, includes
leather case (usually sold separately) was $695, now $595

These will undoubtedly become sought after cameras in the future as only
a tiny amount have been made same price as chrome, only $2595

The new Leica CM, I tried this camera out over the holiday and I'm 
impressed. It is clearly superior to its big brother the Minilux in many 
ways, not least for having a more "M" like finder and focus confirmation 
and being much smaller. I am selling my demo, used by me for 4 days and 
I believe without a mark, with full US warranty for $895. ($100 off 
lowest price.) Later I just may be upgrading, so get this one now before 
I finance a new toy. ;)

(the CM is hard to get even new at the moment, don't hesitate!)
