I owned the original R6 for a relatively short period of time when it first came out I lost it in a home robbery. Small dents, scratches or surface wear in various places. My R4 has a problem with the electronics - shutter not responding to changes in the dial. Usability is unaffected, but the collection value may have suffered. None of the optical deficiencies can be shown to have an effect on picture quality.
I replaced it with another unit, 2277176, and hoped for better luck. It is small enough to not be obvious when doing candids of people, as opposed to my R8 which seldom comes off the tripod. The damage may be beyond repair, or it is only usable as spare parts. I am waiting for my first R6 and wondered if it had a self timer, found your page and some features page points to an electronic timer. Yes, you have to think - manual focus, manual setting of exposure etc - but this is the best way to get great experience and keep improving. You will not regret buying it! There are a couple of other For the most part, this page talks about the R6 and the R6. In most conditions the defects do not clearly affect the final result, but at least a reduction of contrast should be expected.
A random family shot with mine. . With their intricate clockwork timing mechanicsms, mechanical shutters are expensive to make. I like the viewfinder cover the obturator for long exposures. The mechanics of a camera body or accessory have no defects.
The aperture blades work well, even though signs of wear are visible. The photos will look the same whichever R body you use. Absolutely superb contrast, sharpness and bokeh. The camera was subsequently repaired and returned to me, and I sold it. In 1967, the M4 came out with a crank-rewind instead of a knob rewind.
My First ever Leica was R5. The rewind release button will automatically pop-out after the shutter is cocked. But unfortunately, it did not stay for a long time with my other cameras that I had those days. R5 is a good camera. The original packaging and equipment is often included, but not always, so please check the pictures. R7 1992-97 A redesign of the R5, electro-mechanical and auto-exposure and program modes.
Cosmetically: Notable signs of wear visible. The rangefinder was released in 1954 and represented the end of the Barnack-series of screwmount Leicas. The damage may be beyond repair, or it is only usable as spare parts. So, personally, I wouldn't rule out the R6 completely, if you can find it at a good price, it's a perfectly fine piece. The aperture blades move smoothly but may show slight signs of wear. Perfection indeed, if you have forearms of steel, don't mind manual focusing cameras, and love R-glass.
The only thing that won't work is the meter. You can of course use these without only problems.

All functions of the item may not be usable. In fact I think I recognise the street.
I would like to buy an R6 and I would like to know if there are things to look out for. . The aperture blades move smoothly and have not worn marks on each other. Unlike every other entrant in the R-series range with the exception of its successor the , the R6's shutter is fully battery independent. I can highly recommend the 50mm f2 Summicron.
It'll make you feel better, won't it? The R4 and R5 did not sell well. Take notice that 5 stars are given basically only to new or like new items, 4 star items maybe as good as 5 star items cosmetically, but we mark them 4 stars because we know they have seen use. Since then, the M series remained essentially unchanged from the Leica M4 1968 up to the current M7. Photographing is possible in the entire focusing range but the pleasure received from good manual focusing is not at its highest. The crazy field curvature and colours are the best.
R9 2002-09 The latest R system camera. The manual focus has no backlash. However, it's the lens that makes the picture. Holding the R8 is more satisfying, Ergonomics are so superior compared to the R 6. So I part exchanged and that camera is still with me after 19 years looking as I have found then.
