  1. Okay guys, need help with this rangefinder issue. the image comes up at crooked, and it's making focusing kinda annoying. Any idea what could have caused this? Do I just need to send it away to be serviced? thanks- Massoud
  2. I was wondering if any of you leica history buffs could help me out on this weird topic. I recently bought my first leica m, an m4-p. I know the camera had to have been in the last group of 2223 m4-p's produced because it has the m6 top plate windows and single pc port. The issue is that the serial number isn't registered to any leica m4-p's. It's registered to a leica r3. Since production for those cameras ended almost a decade before my camera was ever made, I was wondering what the cause could be. Just a mistake? Hopefully not a fake... the serial # is 1468592 thanks for any input
  3. Hi guys, this is my first post, regarding my first Leica which I bought on Ebay. It was listed as having an issue with 1sec shutter speed being way too fast, which I didn't care much because it is a shutter speed I don't think I am going to use at all. I received the camera, really good cosmetic condition btw, and I noticed that all slow shutter speeds, below 1/30sec were off, way too fast. After googling the problem, I found that that can happen after a long time without being used, and that firing the shutter several times throughout all the shutter speed range might work. So I did
  4. Hi, can anyone recommend any good quality straps that include the protection flaps that go over the attachment points. Ideally under £50 and available in the uk. many thanks, Dan
  5. Hi, newcomer here, can anyone advise if there are any problems when using a Minolta rookie lens on an m-mount camera via an adapter? Does the focus work just as it should? I have just picked up an M4-p and am in the process of deciding which summicron I would like so I want to use my Minolta MD mount glass in the meantime. Thanks in advance for any info.
  6. Taken on Leica M4-P and 35mm Summicron f2.5 lens using Kodak T-Max 400 film. No metering done. Film was lab processed. Gerry
  7. Hej, my beloved M4-P seems to suffer from a light leak. See attached snapshots. It appears on one or two exposures per film. All Images are taken with M4-P, Summicron 35mm Asph., original hood and B+W high quality ND Filter. I experienced it only with the Cron so far, though it seems to be body problem. My questions are: Common issue? Where is the light leak? Back door? Shutter? How/Where to repair (Berlin)? Complicated? Expensive? Thank you very much in advance!! Peter
  8. A snapshot from a recent trip to NYC. My old M4-P, summicron 50, on expired fuji 400. Shot at +2.
  9. Hi I'm a couple of weeks through a major change of working ie from digital to film. I bought a lovely M4-P, stuck a few russian lenses on it and started to take pictures. I have been using the sunny 16 rules and by and large have enjoyed the control and freedom of working with old technology . It really seems to give a certain amount of control back to me, deciding the shutter and aperture, the focus point - yes I know I can do all that with a digital camera, but for some perverse reason having to wait a week for the film to be developed and returned to me makes the whole process magica
  10. Guten Morgen! Ich bin neu hier in der illustren Runde der Leica-Owner, sage hiermit 'Hallo' und hoffe auf ein nettes miteinander. Nachdem es mir gelungen ist ein unbenutztes Exemplar meiner Traum-Leica zu ergattern bleibt für mich zunächst nur eine Frage offen - was bedeutet das 'P' in der Typenbezeichnung. Hoffentlich kann jemand meine Neugier befriedigen. Es grüßt Eddie
  11. My first post here - I procured an M4-P with the 50 f2 - This one is using the "sunny-16" rule with a bit of advanced math....
  12. And I'm converted. Previously, the last 5 years I've been a pro wedding shooter using Nikon. Then I picked up an F5, and re-discovered film. I've always wondered what all the Leica Hype was about, and now I know. Slow down, way way down, and re-discover the moments. Be aware again. Tomorrow I'll post some scans from last week's wedding.

    Which One Do You Suggest?

    I have been looking around for some Leica M Rangefinders. I have narrowed it down to a few: M4-2, M4-p, m6, m7. Which one would you suggest? I am leaning more towards the M4 options but i do knot know the difference between the two, nor the others for that matter. Thanks in advanced for your help. Edit: What are your thoughts on the Voigtländer 15mm, for landscapes and such. I am also considering a summicron 50mm f/2. Any other thoughts of good lenses, not too expensive.

    M4-P

    I've been using an M6TTL for a while now. I got the chance to acquire an R3 Mot + 3 lenses at a good price but found them to be a bit lumpy compared to the M6TTL so I've just traded the R gear for an M4-P in really nice condition. Okay, it hasn't got a meter but a combination of sunny16 and using my Minolta Auto Meter IVf in tricky conditions will get me through. I love the feel of the M4-P and the fact that no batteries are required. Anyone else here have one? Any stuff to watch out for?
  15. Hello forum members! This is my first post (although I have been lurking around for quite some time). My M4-P (very late serial number 16927xx) has an extra nipple or rivet on the rewind knob side of the body. M3 and M2 bodies, as well as barnack leica's such as the iiif, also seem to have this rivet, but I have never seen it on a M4-P (or M4 for that matter). My questions are: What is the function of this rivet? It does not seem to 'do' or hold anything. What purpose did it serve on the M3/M2? Why does my M4-P have one while it seems to have disappeared from m-bodies s
  16. Picked up an M4-P recently, apparently CLA'd in 2020. A few frames from every roll so far have had the left 1/3 or so much darker than the rest of the frame to varying degrees (see examples). I have noticed that this happens only when I shoot in the sun at 1/1000s. I even tested it by shooting the same subject at 1/500s and 1/1000s. The 1/500s was fine while the 1/1000s had the issue. Is this a shutter problem, or am i just clumsy and blocking the lens with my fingers? (Don't mind the banding that was a development issue I have since fixed.)
