The Leica M4 was produced from 1967 to 1975. The camera has had a new design which differs from the previous models and introduced the modern style with angled rewind crank and straight top plate form which was continued till the Leica M7. The viewfinder system of the M4 was based on the Leica M2 but has an additional viewfinder frame for the 135mm lens.
The camera body was silver chrome when the M4 has been intorduced and during production black painted models and later on black chrome versions were available. Further on there have been models which were specially equiped to take a motor drive unit.
Retrospectively, it could be said that the Leica M4 has been the groundbreaker for the modern Leica M models.
Offered is a relatively late Leica M4 in black chrome finish from 1975.
The camera is technically and cosmetically in very good to mint and unchanged oriignal condition and will be delivered including original box and all documents with matching numbers!
Total production: approximately 4.070 units in black chrome!
Rarity forecast: R7
