  • This one-of-a-kind Leica M4, featuring a dark grey paint with black leather, was given a full overhaul in addition to the refinishing. The repainting process entails completely disassembling the camera, stripping all parts of the original paint and painting the entire camera in a durable, high-quality finish. The camera is clean, but has some small scratches. The viewfinder window is clear. The shutter has a nice soft click. The film compartment is very clean, but the shutter curtain shows some wear. Overall, this camera is in excellent condition.

    When combining characteristics of the M2 and the M3 you get the M4.  The M4 was manufactured between 1967 and 1975.  This camera had some small changes, as compared to the M2 and M3, like film rewind is a foldaway crank, three-prong rapid loading take-up spool was built-in, new angle film rewind lever, and no guard around the lens release button. The viewfinder comes in the standard 0.72 crop with 35mm, 50mm, 90mm and 135mm frame lines. 

    "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 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 allows users not only to capture the precise moment, but to truly experience it as well. Powerful yet highly portable, the Leica M4 is a precise photographic tool designed for discerning photographers and imaging professionals everywhere.
