A stealthed Leica M4-P
- Serial # 1588xxx. Most likely made in 1982, making it 31 years old.
- Sporting a Voigtlander-Cosina LTM 21mm f4 lens, a LH-1 Lens hood, and 21mm viewfinder.
- Yellow-green filter attached.

- A slight bit of brassing above the lugs.
- A small dent right under the film winder.
- A barely-there, shallow dent on the top plate.
Leica M6TTL with 35mm Summicron ASPH
- Sweet 12585 round vented hood. This hood works on most of the earlier 35mm and 50mm lenses. The 12526 square hood that came with the lens is crooked when mounted. This is sort of common. Can’t make the round one crooked though. Anyways…
- Green Cam-In soft release.
- Another B+W Yellow Green Filter. I like yellow green filters.
- Loaded with Kentmere 400.

- 50+ years of assorted crud attached

- Guesstimate both distance and composition
Q:Hey, I made that poster you reblogged. It was meant to be the m5, sorry to have irritated you, I understand.
Hah, everything irritates me. Didn’t mean to offend you with my petty criticism! The M5 body type was a completely new design, to many Leica fans’ dismay, so I’m not sure if that would have worked. The original M6 on the other hand, intro’d in 1984, shares the same body style as all the Ms except of course for the earlier mentioned M5.
