Leica M4-2 (M4-P) Camera Body Only. This is a Leica M4-2 (M4-P), in user condition.
It takes M mount lenses and is fully manual, essentially an M6 without a light meter and in my opinion the best Leica camera because of the great frame lines and rangefinder magnification. It is important to note that this Leica M4-2 is essentially an M4-P because it has an upgraded viewfinder with added 28mm and 75mm frame lines, the only difference is it does not have the red Leitz dot on the front body. In my opinion this makes the camera better as the red dot is not to my taste. This camera has the following framelines in the viewfinder.
The camera has not been serviced although it has been used extensively for a year and has presented no issues. It has been used with 35mm and 50mm lenses with good focusing, and shutter speeds seem accurate from general use and a test with a stopwatch. There are a few scratches and scuffs around the body, some on the top plate from a Leicameter, as well as above the strap lugs where the strap has been rubbing. There is a tiny piece of vulcanite missing but its hardly noticeable. The Leica logo on the front of the camera is a little discoloured as well.
The biggest problem that this camera has is that the M socket on the back, next to the X socket, has broken off. It has been covered with tape and does not cause light leaks. This is the socket for flash bulbs so unless you are using flash bulbs instead of the hot shoe then this will not be a problem. This will require a service to fix, and the price has been considered accordingly. If you have any questions please send me a message.
