For more than 100 years, Leica Camera AG has been a synonym for cameras and lenses with permanent values such as reliability, consistency, and quality. With analog photography experiencing a renaissance –the new Leica M6 represents Leica Camera’s continued commitment to these values.
The Leica M6 from 2022 relies on a modern version of the Leica M rangefinder with a 0.72x magnification. Furthermore, all of its optical surfaces are now coated and thus less sensitive to stray light. The light meter in the latest M6 now shows the correct exposure via a red dot in addition to the two arrow symbols originally used. Additionally, it is equipped with a battery warning indicator. The top cover has also been redesigned: while the cover of the preceding model was made of diecast zinc, it is now milled from solid brass and enhanced with an abrasion-resistant black lacquer. The exposure meter in the M6 measures light via a brightened area on the mechanically controlled cloth shutter. Like the original from 1984, the new editionof the M6 is also adorned with the red Leitz logo.
The M6 remains true to itself and preserves all other typical character traits such as the slanted rewind crank for the film. Handmade in Germany, it is an extremely reliable companion for all those who appreciate the lasting and contemplative nature of analog photography.
The legendary Leica M6 is an icon. Intuitive, compact and discreet, it allows you to get up close to the action – and to real emotions. Since 1984, it has been the camera of choice for many of the world's best photographers, who have used it to create countless iconic images. In a world that is moving faster than ever, analogue photography is experiencing a renaissance, as people embrace traditional values like reliability, trust and quality. People want cameras with a soul. Like the Leica M6. Embodying only the essentials, it reflects a conscious rejection of countless features in favour of focussing on what’s necessary. To revisit photography as an active, creative process and to tell intimate stories. The new Leica M6. The rebirth of an icon "Made in Germany“.
