I love it. What is the sound of an M camera at 1/15 sec.?
It's kind of "clikshh". My M6 is a LHSA black paint model, so that might affect the sound a little. The black and chrome ones "seem" to have a little more emphasis on the "clik" part, but that could have just been me.
I was having a little joke with Douglas, but I do know what you mean. 1/15 is the supposedly test speed.
I knew that..I figured with all the opinions on this list that we'd get dozens of people telling us EXACTLY what an M sounds like!. I've noticed that since I've moved to Texas my M6 is developing a bit of a drawl. Last night it sounded kind of like "clikyall"....
My old R4s had similar problems with seals. It was fixed with Pentax stuff and I understand the camera is still light tight after 8 years or more. So I supose what I'm saying is that it is possible to improvise with non Leica seals.
Good luck, and if Justin's reference brings no joy, let us know how you get on.
Mike this might seem silly, but have you tried Leica, NJ. This body is after all,is the same as the R6.2 which was only recently discontinued.
They'll probably send it to you f.o.c. (Try Dave in the Parts dept.)
I have an R4 where the advance lever occasionally sticks at the end of the stroke. I can gently push it back. It is an intermittant problem. I thought it might be cold weather affecting the lubricants, but even after sitting inside it happens once in awhile. Any ideas on what's wrong? Or does it look like I should send it in for a CLA?
