KEH Specifications

Imagine a "classic" M6 made with the traditional craftsmanship of the classic M3. That was Leica's aim in  producing the special 40th Anniversary M6J 1994.

The M6J has TTL metering, hot shoe, motor drive connection, and an M4 style rewind crank, and a M6 style battery chamber. Using a .85 magnification finder. The M6J provides almost the same focusing accuracy while also adding a 35mm frameline -- something the M3 never had.  Unfortunately for 75/1.4 Summilux fans, a 75 frameline was not added as well.  Notice the classic style chrome  lens cap.

The M6J was sold only with its own special 50/2.8 collapsible Elmar, which shares the same serial number as the camera. While the exterior barrel and finish live up to the classic 50/2.8, the optical formula is a modern improvement over the original.

The M6J was something of celebrity just for its finder when introduced in 1994 -- forget the rest of the camera.  Not only was the M6J's finder the first higher than .72 magnification Leica M finder since the long discontinued M3, the M6J  finder had the 35 frameline and TTL metering that the no M3 ever had.
