    I know the M7 doesn't so I would assume the M6 doesn't either. I would like to know what that lever is too.

    I got it, the lever is for the frame in the viewfinder. it moves depending on the lens you use and reflects a focal length-appropriate frame in the viewfinder.

    My Leica book says that the M5 & M4 dose, but not M6, seem when the light meter was added, the self-timer space was needed for the battery compartment

    Are you thinking about getting one?

    You can buy a screw in self timer for $10, or the Leica brand version for $1000 (just kidding ;) ).

    :lol: Funny, but not totally untrue. I've wanted to get a Leica for a while but won't have the money for a while :)
