real world, it's not a worry. Shintaro does a great job dependably--
actually inexpensive considering that his cameras turn out better than the
original black M3's or M2's  easy to wear off finish.  not fast, takes an
average of 4 months to get a camera back

Shintaro  will also paint your M3 a silver hammertone which is much much
better than the hammertone finish of the LHSA MP.  better color, prettier,
much tougher finish.

Shintaro's email is
