There have now been M series Leicas in my life on three separate occasions. The first was in the mid-60s when I worked as a photojournalist using an M2 and an M3 extensively to make a living.  During a 10 year period I likely shot 8-10,000 rolls of...

theVooner reviews what is considered by most to be the ultimate rangefinder camera

This entire episode has completely ruined my Leica experience. I own about 6 other Leica products, all of which are very good. Leica in general make great products of very high quality. I just question their commitment to this quality today, given my...

Leica M6 TTL

 

Over 50 years of photographing, I worked my way up From a gift Exa to a Rollei 35, Nikonos, EM and then bought a Minolta CLE just before a month's assignment to the Exxon Valdez cleanup. The 6 rolls of Fuji slide film I shot in Alaska was the catalyst...

1) Wide selection of highest quality lenses - both vintage and modern. And there is a huge variety of other LTM lenses you can try for nostalgia. I occasionally use a Russian Jupiter 12 with M adapter with excellent results - total investment $90 ; 2)...

Cost ; No self timer ; Zoom with your feet. (Every time I lift the camera to ny eye I can hear my father saying "Get closer!")

Leica M6 TTL

 

I have been reading reviews on the M6 for quite a while but I never saw one in the flesh until October when I was on holiday in London. I was wanting to look at the Digilux 2 but I spied an M6 and fell in love with it. I already have a Contax G2 kit...

Brings back the joys of photography.

Taking the M6 as it is I see no weaknesses.

Leica M6 TTL

 

This is a wonderful camera that allows high quality 35mm images to be taken without the intrusiveness of an SLR. It is a camera that forces you to consider the fundamental elements involved in photography with every picture taken. Unfortunately it is...

Small, quiet & extremely portable Discreet TTL metering Minimal shutter lag No viewfinder blackout

Rangefinder patch flare Sluggish meter response Shutter easily damaged by the sun Parallax error (common to all viewfinder cameras) Difficult to focus moving subjects

Leica M6 TTL

 

I initially approached the Leica M through a M^TTL 0.58. Wearing glasses I found that I could see the bright lines easily particluarly with my 35, 50, 75. I added a dioper and the 1.25 magnifier but have since removed both from the eyepiece. Moving...

Solid, quality, flawless operation, ease of operation (after practice). The results, my chromes speak for themselves.

None that I am aware.

Leica M6 TTL

 

Un placer tenerla en las manos. Muy facil de usar, si lo tuyo son las camaras manuales: cargas la pelicula por la parte de abajo como hace 80 años, encuadras, enfocas manualmente, mides la luz y seleccionas el diafragma y la velocidad, disparas y pasas...

Extrafuerte. Silenciosa y no demasiado grande. Calidad total.

En determinadas situaciones es algo dificil de enfocar mediante el sistema de imagen partida. No tiene autodisparador. La velocidad mas lenta es de solo 1 segundo sin contar la posicion B. No hay informacion en el visor de la velocidad ni el diafragma...

This camera was always a dream of mine to own. As a pro wedding photographer I have been used to carrying tons of kit around on a wedding. I hurt my back early this year and seriously looked at someway of lightening the load. I have been using Xpan for...

Build quality, compactness, quietness, wonderfully fast lenses, absolutey no shutter lag, the camera oozes quality.

None except the price - but you do get what you pay for.

Leica M6 TTL

 

After 40+ years of amateur photography, using most 35mm brands, medium and large format cameras as well, following retirement I decided to add to the collection the M-6 TTL, 0.72. Lenses are the Summicron 35mm f2, 50mm Summicron f2, and 90mm Elmarit...

Build quality. Materials. Legendary durability. LENSES, LENSES, LENSES. Great controls. Handfit and substance.

Cost, but with a caveat. You simply cannot build a Mercedes at Chevy prices. I wish everyone could afford to experience the satisfaction of photography with this beatiful piece of equipment.

I am lucky to have have 2 M6TTL and 35/1.4, 50/1.4 and 90/2. I sold my F100 with 3 AFS/2.8 zoom lenses and some AIS lenses recently after having use the first M6TTL and 35/1.4 for more than one yr. I use the money for an .58 version and the 50/1.4, so...
