Rangefinder is crisp and aligned, light meter is all right, rewind mechanism is perfect, and shutter speeds are accurate. You're going to enjoy a lot the 0.85 magnification, especially if you shoot 50mm. I shoot mainly 35mm and for me the 0.85 was a breeze! (I use glasses and I had no problems seeing the lines). If you shoot 28mm just pass this camera because there's no 28mm framelines.These late M6s are the best in terms of Leica quality according to Leica master Youxin Ye. After production get back to Germany, quality became better, the.
Quality is better than the M4-2/M4-P. Since German did not make camera for some years, it took them some time to get back, the later production, the better quality.
You need avoid early production. Typical problem includes bad meter, silver coating oxidization in main prism, and light leak.
Also, this is a low production camera, only 3130 0.85 M6s were made, check out cameraquest for more, but I quote:. 85 production was only 3,130 cameras before production shifted to the M6TTL. This means the first model.85 will be a future collectable due to the low production. So, you know what you're going to get.
The body presents quite a lot of bubbles mostly on the top plate, also there are some on the base plate (this is very normal and does not affects anything, you know that). I'm only the second owner, I bought the camera from a retired photographer in Bremen, Germany.Included are the Leica strap and Leica case, all original. There's no body cap, sorry.
