Made in Midland, Ontario Canada in 1980
Early serial number example
Modeled after the original M4 and M4-2 but with the self timer removed and added the 28mm and 75mm frame lines. Now a 6 frame line camera for the first time!

Leicas first 6 frame viewfinder. This viewfinder is also used in the M6 and MP cameras.
A wonderful all mechanical camera to use!

This camera is untouched and still has its original C seal from Midland over 40+ years ago! WOW!

Cosmetics 8.5/10
No dings, dents or major marks
Faint bright marks on the base and some faint signs of use
Leatherette is nice overall - one very very small chip under the lens mount and left of the back door* a weak point for Leica vulcanite
Lugs are clean.
A clean camera to use!

Mechanics 9/10
Shutter speeds are accurate
All camera functions are working normally which is very nice considering that the camera has not been touched for over 40 years!

Optics 8+/10
Viewfinder is clean and the rangefinder bright
The exterior window ( from over 40 years not being opened ) has a touch of haze which is almost always the case and actually shows that this camera really has not been opened.

For a CLA of the camera, there are many options of you wish to do so or keep it a VIGIN with the C seal. As you wish!

These have recently gained great popularity for obvious reason. This is basically a non metered M6 camera. All mechanical, 6 frame lines, classic camera.
Great value and the last CANADIAN M camera before the M6.
A pleasure to have and enjoy!
