  • Leitz made the decision to abandon the M-cameras including the TTL M5 after the introduction of the M4-2 at the 1976 Photokina.  Because of the rising costs of production in Wtzlar and the company's need for capital, demand persuaded Leitz to re-introduce M-cameras in 1978 with the M4-2 manufactured in Canada.  About 95 Leica M4-2 cameras were made in 1977, but they bear serial numbers actually allotted for the Leica R3 Safari cameras. The Leica M4-2 was made between 1977 and 1980 in Canada.

    For the history buffs. An unkown number of M4-2 cameras in olive green were supplied to the Tank Division of the Israeli army.

    "Messsucher", the "M" in the Leica M System, is a term describing the combination of rangefinder and viewfinder. True to the M legacy, the M4-2 maintains the form, control placement, and durability of its predecessors. Through a bright viewfinder the photographer can approach subjects with greater context and manual focusing flexibility. Without the finder blackout of traditional SLR cameras, shooting with the M4-2 allows users not only to capture the precise moment, but to truly experience it as well. Powerful yet highly portable, the Leica M4-2 is a precise photographic tool designed for discerning photographers and imaging professionals everywhere.
