Linhof Master Technika `Black Edition' : LUSENET : Large format photography : One Thread

I've seen offers for Linhof MTs `Black Edition'... can anybody explain the difference between this model an the regular MT?
How is the black finish achieved? Some kind of anodization, or just paint? If paint, how resistant against scratch&wear, compared to the standard MT?

As prices for the black MTs are lower than for the standard model, what is the disadvantage of the black model? Is it feature-wise equivalent to the current standard model?

On the black version the exterior metal trim of the body is the same black finish as a Tk, Tecnorama or Kardan camera. (not the covering which is still black material). The chrome version has chrome rather then black finish.

Functionallity and features are identical.
