    Hello All, thought I'd post a few examples from my M6:

    13274732373_b1ccd5a65b_b.

    Tamsui Taiwan, 15/4.5 CV Super-Wide Heliar ASPH on TMX, slight crop

    11855132573_6dc119dbf5_b.

    Santa Monica California, 50/2.8 Elmar-M V2 on TMY-2

    8653135745_eaab274bcf_b.

    Arches under the New York Capitol building, Albany, 15/4.5 CV Super-Wide Heliar on TMY-2

    11899434016_1ee8fb0052_b.

    Jacksonville Florida, 50/2 Summitar with LTM adapter on Kodak Color Plus 200

    And the camera...

    9890851865_743d1d6821_b.

    M6 Titanium (Classic with the Elmar) serial number dates to October 1992, purchased new by one previous owner (who happens top be an award-winning photojournalist formerly with Contact Press Images) explaining its "user" condition; but it works flawlessly!

    That is a beautiful camera, and has wound up in good hands.

    Thank you Brian! And that camera has a lot more dings and scratches than that picture shows, along with a "Contact Press Images" sticker on the baseplate. I'll definitely be leaving it on there, it adds to its character! :)

    Nice photos. I still have my M6 although I use the 50 Summicron on a new digital. I'm tempted to get some Tri X out of the freezer and load it again. But not having a darkroom is a pain. I'm reluctant to use outside development, HC110 was my favorite, expired 2011. lol
