The Leica MP is a classic camera with a pull-up rewind knob which is more durable than a crank. It is a 35mm film professional camera with a finder available in the normal range of magnifications. Like the other cameras in the M series, the Leica MP is able to use any M lens all the way back to the origin of the line in the early-1960s. The camera is built with a hefty structure of brass, well made and durable which ups the price, and is coated with black paint that wears slowly. One very nice feature of the Leica MP is that it can be operated without batteries because of its mechanical built and all metal controls. Picture quality is the sole responsibility of the photographer, there are no digital enhancements to help the consumer out.
