Regarded by many photographers as one of the better rangefinders, the Leica M4 possesses the same classic feel and finish of its predecessors but with significant improvements to its specifications.
Introduced in 1967, the Leica M4 rangefinder is the successor to the 1954 Leica M3. It features framelines for 35mm, 50mm, 90mm and 135mm lenses in a 0.72 magnification viewfinder and some ergonomic modifications such as a faster loading system and a different film advance lever that sets it apart from earlier Leica M models.
