Well I just discovered the mystic of Leica. I recently purchased a mint condition M6 .72 classic and shot my first roll of film. What an experience! I had 4 or 5 rangefinders in the past including Canons and Voigtlander Bessas but what a differnce. Where in the past the RF window in the viewfinder was dim or hard to see fine focus the M6 is crystal clear on the dimmest or low contract scenes, it is easy to focus, and bright. The shutter is quiet and solid sounding, the film advance is smooth as silk, the film rewind function is well designed and the camera is nice to hold. I can't wait to shoot some more!!! I tested the shutter speeds with a sound oscilliscope and the shutter speeds are right on and the curtain looks new. Beautiful, just Beautiful.

That's so awesome! It really is an experience and people that haven't shot with a Leica just don't understand. Truly amazing how solid and smoothly they operate, isn't it? The M6 is a great camera (I have an M7 myself, as I'm an aperture priority kinda guy).
