    Pros: Completely Manual Camera Body only dependent on batteries for the Light meter's LEDs
    Cons: None Worth Mentioning

    Summary: Having had my Leica M6 of twelve years stolen on a recent trip to Spain, my insurance company and I replaced it all with the M6 TTL. My photographic background goes back a couple of decades working as the regional photographer for United Press ... read more

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: good optics
    Cons: poor value

    Summary: As you read comments about the M-series cameras you will see a love it or hate it pattern. If you can live with the system limitations and money is no object the Leica maybe a good choice for you. If on the other hand money is a concern and value ... read more

  • M6TTL - still the best RF camera!

    Jun 26, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Build quality, classic all-manual RF camera, unbeatable optics, large bright viewfinder.
    Cons: Difficult to operate for the beginner, high prices for camera and lenses.

    Summary: INTRODUCTION The M6TTL is the last Leica rangefinder camera with a mechanically timed shutter. It's a handsome, compact camera which is surprisingly heavy (1/2 kilogram). It's very solidly built and workmanship is first class. The basic model ... read more

  • Want a Leica M6? Think about why.

    Aug 6, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Superb piece of hardware; food for your dreams; owning a style.
    Cons: Hard payoff matrix; dependent of your abilities like a baby.

    Summary: Let me say from the start: I love Leicas; I love the "mirrorless", candid and silent concept of a rangefinder and I do not bother about the alleged limitations of the M series in the face of modern SLRs (not even the clumsy film loading). I miss my M3 ... read more

  • Better off without it

    Jul 15, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Mechanical reliability, creative simplicity, great optics, small, light
    Cons: Over-priced, over-collected, difficult film loading

    Summary: I loved using my Leica. There's something about it that really just feels good- I can't put it into words, but there is certainly an intangible quality that is likely the real reason why this over-priced simple camera still sells. I find that ... read more

    Pros: Beautiful, romantic, sexy.
    Cons: Expensive, heavy, old-fashioned, slow, awkward...

    Summary: Why buy Omega Speedmaster Watch and not a Casio Quartz? Because of it's classic looks, the romantic blabla, it's uniqueness etc. A timepiece, not a watch...yeah and about 10 times as expensive. So why do people buy expensive things with less ... read more

    Feb 6, 2001 by

    Pros: No electronics making decisions for you.
    Cons: Have to take the entire camera bottom off to load film.

    Summary: Leica cameras are known for having fine quality and precision mechanics. As well as having some spectacular lenses that also have a high degree of build quality. But, Leica cameras and lenses are extremely expensive. In fact, if you are considering ... read more
