The Leica M6 was first introduced in 1984 and went on to become one of the most influential cameras in the history of photography. It was replaced by the MP and M7 before it was eventually replaced by the M8. Its simplicity, toughness, and intuitive operation made it the ideal choice for photographers who were looking to capture the essence of film photography. Now, after a decade of being out of production, the M6 is back in full production.

Film is Not Dead!

Film instills in us a sense of commitment and responsibility to make decisions. In a manual camera, our knowledge of the fundamental principles of photography is the only thing that matters. Through the film development process, we separate ourselves from the final image, allowing us to better visualize the effects of exposure and aperture. Film has proved to be one of the most rewarding forms of photography in the post-digital era due to its natural beauty.

The Leica Way

Despite the various changes that have occurred in the field of photography over the years, true love and attention to detail have remained the same for the Leica M cameras. Since their inception, the M cameras have been known for their unique design and have been able to capture some of the most iconic images. Their elegant and versatile features have made them an icon. Besides their unique design, the M system also has a variety of high-quality materials that make it easy to use and maintain.

Rangefinder and Light Meter

The new M6 Classic features a full overhaul, taking advantage of the latest technology and techniques pioneered by the modern M-body. It's a great addition to any collection of rangefinders, and it's also a bit lighter than its predecessor. Its 0.72x magnification makes it an ideal middle ground between the alternatives. 

New electronics have been used to make the light meter more reliable. It also features a modern display with a dot on the center, and it'll work with various 135-millimeter and 28-35mm lens models. The attached lens will automatically set the focal length in the viewfinder when it's connected to the body.

The rangefinder features a field selector that allows you to display all of the frame lines, and it also has a built-in battery warning. This feature lets you select the ideal focal length and focus on the subject at the right moment.

Craftsmanship

The new light meter features a redesigned top cover. Although the original was made from diecast zinc, the new model is made from solid brass and has an abrasion-resistant coating. Its shutter speed dial is similar to the M6 Classic's design, and a PC socket is located below the flash shoe. The rear ISO dial is also more reliable

Extras and Accessories

Every detail was taken into account to ensure that the M6's experience would be the same as it was during the 1980s. This new version retains the original box, which is made from sustainable plastic and features the Leitz logo on the inside cover. The manual and black leather strap are also modeled after the originals.
