By ViseHi everyone,
I'm new to this forum and I'm new to Leica world.
Yesterday I received my first Leica, a Black Classic M6. I thought it was a "bargain" at first, but now, after checking It all around, I see a misaligned of the top plate.
How serious do you think it is? Is it solvable? I have not yet contacted the seller, I wanted to ask you first and then my trusted repairer. I hope it is nothing serious... Before taking it, the seller told me that the shutter had been serviced a few months earlier

By rinatusDie Kamera befindet sich in einem gebrauchten Zustand und ist voll funktionsfähig. Sie war wurde 2015 bei Leica geprüft und gereinigt und in 2018 justiert und generalüberholt. Der Sensor und Lederüberzug sind ebenfalls neu, das Innenleben ist neuwertig. Optisch hat die Kamera Gebrauchspuren (leichte Kratzer, Farbabrieb) an der Ober- & Unterseite. Die Funktion ist aber einwandfrei!
Die Kamera hat 27.300 Auslösungen.
Im Kaufpreis enthalten sind Kamera, Kameragurt, Originalverpackung, Rechnung und Nachweise von Leica, 1x Original- und 3x Fremdakkus, zwei Ladegeräte.
Der Versand erfolgt versichert mit DHL. PayPal ist möglich, allerdings trägt der Käufer die Gebühren.
Bei Fragen gern mailen.
I have had a M6 (serial number is in the 1665000 range) for about 7 years now and to be honest, haven't used it a lot in the last few years, but fired it up again recently and noticed that I think the light meter is functioning odd. In the past, I could press the shutter button when the film wasn't wound on and the light meter would activate, briefly, and then I could set the exposure. Now it doesn't do that, but when I wind film on, it will activate the light meter and not turn off until a photo is taken.
I ran a roll of film through and it works fine - i.e the exposures were fine - it just seems to activate differently that it used to. Is this a common thing anyone knows about?
I live in Melbourne, Australia and it's tough to get a repairer here who will look at an M6. Any advice would be REALLY helpful.
Thanks in advance!
(Also, I added a photo of my camera just 'cause it's a nice looking thing.)

By ThomasSmithDPHey Guys,
I wanted to buy a used leica since months now. But I am still unsure if I should go with the M6 or the M4? The only big difference is that the M6 has a lightmeter and the M4 not. But since I work in the film industry. I wanted to buy a separate light meter anyway at some point. So is it better to go with the cheaper M4 and get also a good lens instead of spending a lot on the M6?
Looking forward to your replies
I have to choose between two mint condition cameras, one is a upgraded viewfinder M7 and second one is a m6 classic with a recent CLA.
I like the M7 as it gives me the option for aperture priority IF I want. But the one thing that worries me is the electronics, compared to the M6 mechanical inside.
Please advise as I need to make a quick choice. The price is not the factor i need help with just the talk around riliabilty and posabilty to service IF it breaks down in a couple of years.
