LEICA M5 body classic rangefinder 0,72 serviced 1,5 Volt

The absolute classic in rangefinder cameras, the Leica M series. Timeless design, utmost reliability, perfect mechanical and optical performance and highest standards in workmanship and materials used. 

Here the model M5, the first M Leica with incorporated lightmeter. Frames 35/50/90/135mm.

No. 1297168. Year of production 1972.

At its time not so many produced because of its unusal design; nowadays popular BECAUSE of its timeless and harmonic superb design. 

Super-silent shutter release, manual setting of aperture and speed with lightmeter control by needle in the finder, precise manual focusing with bright rangefinder with wide basis, also for the fastest lenses. 

ALL M Leica lenses can be used except very old 21 and 28mm versions; also collapsible lenses must not be collapsed completely on the camera. 

The rarest of the older regular made in Germany M rangefinder models, only about 33000 pieces produced (for comparison: M2 over 80.000, M3 over 220.000, M4 over 50.000, M6 over 125.000).

Camera is presently for overhauling/the promised servcie in the service center, and can be shipped from about 30th septembre on.

Whats included in delivery: Body, body cap, 1 synchro cover, and of course fresh exposure meter battery
Working condition: 1 (for YOUR advantage overwhauled by service-center and changed to modern 1,5 Volt batteries; so you can now use the readily available 625 U instead of the originally used 1,35 Volt 625PX thats not allowed to produce anymore because of its mercury content, since 2001)
Condition of optical elements (lens glasses): -
Condition cosmetically (outer condition): C (dent right side) / see pictures
