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


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


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


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


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

    And the camera...


    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
