I'm struggling to find this information anywhere on the internet and hoping someone may be able to chime in.
I have a Leica M6 (#168xxxx) and have a meter that is underexposing by 1 to 1 1/2 stops. I have confirmed this in 3 ways:
1) I've metered a gray card with an external meter and it differs from my M6 meter
2) I've metered a gray card with a Contax G2 meter and again, it differs from my M6 meter
3) all the photos I get back from the lab are consistently underexposed.
I shoot 400 speed film and set the camera's ASA to 200 to let another stop light in and this fixes the problem. I'm curious if anyone knows if there is an adjustment that can be made to the meter so that I don't have to compensate this way forever. I had new light shields installed by DAG in July because of a light leak issue and the camera was apparently also checked for accurate shutter speeds, rangefinder and meter. I've emailed him again but haven't heard back in 3 days. Hoping someone else might be able to point me in the right direction.
Continuing my trawl through my archives, I found this from Chinese New Year in London 1998. I had been shooting with my first Leica (a M3) for less than a year at this stage.
Film was Fuji Neopan 400 and the lens was an old Summicron 50mm f2.
