    Yeah, great. So it seems that the edges where Ms tend to scratch first are not covered by the film. Design goal not reached!? 😉

    • Florian

      what a rip off 🙂 45$ for some peaces of plastic paper.

      • Ric Ricard

        A book is also a rip off because its like $20 for some sheets of paper with words on it.

  • it´s for the same (sorry! don´t want to offend feelings) stupid idiots, who cover their 800$ multiple design award winning i phones (or other smartphones) in a 30¢ plastic cover made in china. do you cover your 50 000$ mercedes (or any other nice car) in plastic?? i love each scratch on my leicas because they have a story. they brought me through the whole world and pays my house. thanks for each brass part, love it!

      re: cars
      You may not have noticed, but lots of cars have transparent plastic film covering the hood (bonnet) to protect it from stone chips.
      I think you are getting extremely upset over nothing. Some people are more tolerant of scratches than others. It’s a personality trait, and your rant won’t change anything.

    • Actually many people wrap also they expensive cars.

    • Nathan Wright

      I’m one of those stupid idiots. My iPhone is in a Quack Lock case which locks onto my bicycle just like a camera lens bayonet. It’s ugly, but it protects the phone from drops (a daily occurrence) and allow it to mount easily to my tripod, my bicycle, and to my car.

      • i´m sorry don’t wanted to be impolite to anyone.
        you drop your phone daily and connect it to tripod???wtf, hopefully you are more cautious with your camera.

  • eric

    I think you really have to be rough with a camera to get a lot of scratches on it but everyone is different. I prefer to be like Robert Capa, carefree with my camera nicely snug in a leather bag (ona).

    • Nathan Wright

      My M240 is pretty damn scratched up.

    • Ric Ricard

      A black Leica M9 and M240 show wear much quicker than a Nikon or Canon. The black pain wears rather quickly and the gold/brass color shows underneath. That’s why its always odd to see so many used mint condition Leicas out there. I don’t understand how any using a Leica can keep it in pristine condition. Obviously a lot of Leica are being bought only to sit on a shelf and later sold.

      The M10 is different. Like the M9 Monochrom, it is black but not painted black. I believe it is some sort of black chrome. It won’t brass when it wears. It looks much better than the M9 and M240 as it ages.

  • you are probably all right!!!
    i just meant that I don´t get the sense in such products.
    just my own thoughts… me in personal don´t wrap my beautiful design winning belongings in plastic covers. i´m not rich, but i work very hard for my interests, so i take as much care as i possibly can, and a good insurance^^
    yes i know that car hood protectors, and its a shame. like eric said…the varnish itself on a leica is pretty strong!
    just wanted to let off steam about more and more useless plastic. please don´t interpret too much in my words 🙂
    enjoy your day folks!!

  • Ric Ricard

    Does someone make a product to protect these plastic sheets from getting damaged? Or maybe put the camera in a case to protect the plastic sheets right? And then just put the camera and case in ANOTHER case to protect the first case, right?

    • Yes, I don’t care about protection 🙂 but some readers do. I already dropped the bottom plate of my new M10 and now I can hardly fit it on the body. Oh well, as long as it works I don’t care.

      • Ric Ricard

        At least you have a M10. Mine arrived. I used it for 2 days and realized the rangefinder was out of calibration! I returned it to Samy’s camera (no charge for return shipping) and they say I’ll be first on the list for a replacement. Really loved the camera, although I was disappointed that the AWB in daylight fluorescent lighting was a bad as it was in the M240 and M9. My ancient Nikon D3s and my cheap Sony a6000 both do ok in that situation.

        • That sucks – I was lucky to get mine on the day it was announced. Leica service department is backed up right now – I waited over 2 months for my M-E. Hopefully you will get yours faster.

        • eric

          Im still waiting for an M10 since January. At least you got to use one for two days. Might be a year or two before I get one. Lol.

        • Wait, so out of the box it was out of focus ????

          • Ric Ricard

            Yes. Incapable of taking a sharp photo right out of the box.

          • eric

            Maybe you got a demo version that was recently dropped, lol, joking of course.

    • Florian

      i have a different opinion. i actually use my equipment and somehow i manage to not ding it up. i saw your videos about the appeal of leica and about the advantages of the m9 vs. m240. great videos, very good in depth content. but i wouldn’t enjoy using one of your leicas. i hate using well used electronic devices. it just bothers me. i can’t enjoy photography when my camera is worn and dinged up.

      but i have strange habits. every time i buy a new game for my ps4 or my xbox i clean my flat, otherwise i couldn’t enjoy my passion for gaming.

      • Ric Ricard

        Thank you for taking the time to watch those videos! As for dinged up stuff, I’ve personally lost all attachment to “things”. I try to keep in mind that the only thing that really matters in this world are people. All stuff can be replaced. Reading a book called, “The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up” really helped me with that outlook. While I do own a lot of stuff, I don’t really care about any of it in a sentimental sense. I’m ready to sell or replace it at a whim. I don’t collect anything. And when a loved one passes, I’d like to have 1 or 2 times to commemorate that person, but I’m not looking to keep a whole lot of there things. If you get a chance, check out the book. Perhaps you’ll enjoy it like I did.

  • eric

    It seems like rangefinders need fixed often or have problems more than other cameras. Maybe I just hear about them more. Ive never had to fix any of my cameras. Only issues I’ve had are with a few lenses.

    • Nathan Wright

      They are not TTL, that’s why. But my M240 has been as stable otherwise as any of my Nikons or Fujifilm cameras. It’s also far, far sturdier than the Fuji and Sony cameras I’ve owned.

      • eric

        Yeah the M seems pretty stable. Ive never had a problem using an m9 or Nikon bodies but I also don’t throw my cameras around. Other than manufacturing defects there shouldn’t be many issues.

  • Daryl

    Edges are the first and most common damage points, I can’t count how many Leica bodies I’ve seen with large dents on the edges, otherwise pristine. Gaffers tape adds texture, prevents dropping.
