Serviced Leitz LEICA M5 Camera Body. & CASE, STRAP +CAP. Cheaper than M6 M2 M3 +M4. A fabulous opportunity to own your own Leica Rangefinder camera, fully serviced and ready to go. All’A1′, 100% and good to go! The M5 makes great sense as a first Leica M camera, the reason being that it’s overlooked and therefore underpriced. Admittedly it’s not quite the same shape as the others but have you ever listened to someone who’s used them both, for years at a time? I have used an M2 for many years, an M5 for many years and an M6 for many years. Once up at the eye the M5 feels completely natural and easy to use, not large(r) at all. Unlike the M2 M3, M4 etc. And early (non-TTL) M6, you can roll the shutter speed dial with your forefinger against the front panel, something that is impossible until you get to the M6TTL cameras in later years. The M5 has a meter than is 1-stop more sensitive in low light than the M6. That’s because it’s a direct measurement rather than using a reflected patch on the shutter blinds. You can also see the shutter speed in the viewfinder, something that even the M6 doesn’t offer.. Sadly you can’t use the IXMOO reloadable cassettes but then who does? Sadly there isn’t a 1 second shutter speed (on the M5) but then you could time that, count it to yourself, if you set the camera on B. The M5 gives you the full four frame-lines that you get on the M4, they’re not available on the M3 or M2. Meter works properly, takes a PX625A battery. Shutter just serviced on this, all working fine and sounding sweet now. Base of camera has some speckling of the black chrome but rest looks great. And genuine Leitz M5 case, remember this dandy camera hangs vertically! Also a suitable black cordura strap, non Leitz. Cosmetic – 8.5 Mechanical – 10. Optical – 9.9 No visual defects.
