The M3J of 2006 was created to celebrate the opening of the world’s first Leica Salon, Leica Ginza, located in Tokyo.
At first glance the M3J looks very much like a black finished M3 but it’s basically a Leica MP, with black painted M3 top and bottom plates, a classic rewind knob and advance lever, and “Buddha” style strap lugs. But on the front is something found on no other M3—a battery cover! That’s because this M3 black paint clone incorporates an MP-style metering system. #TBT #LeicaSociety
