Leica M4-2 / 35mm Pre-ASPH Lux
Purchased this little M4-2 as a spare part camera for my M4-P. Came with it’s shutter stuck, its sync sockets gone, and the plastic tip on the advance lever ripped from the metal.
Coming home everyday and seeing it lying in the dry cabinet, lonely and forgotten, I decided to send it for a repair and CLA at the friendly neighbourhood Chiif Cameras.
After a lengthy 3 weeks, the M4-2 returned, it’s shutter restored. Now mounted with it’s new friend, the 35mm pre-asph (stolen from it’s brother the M4-P), it’s ready to go again.
Hand made a strap for it as well, from scraps of leather and twine I had lying around at home.
I have a soft spot for used cameras long forgotten by their owners. They are beautiful in their own right, and I am proud to use them myself. This is also the first time I’ve seen a black chrome camera this brassed.
All Canadian, all Leica.
