Late last year Leica reintroduced the Leica M6 to the world, this new version of this 35mm film camera came with better rangefinder optics, better metering options and gave the analog community hope that Leica are taking the film community seriously and certainly stamped its authority as one of the best Leica cameras on the market.  

Well, ever since its announcement in October 2022 the new Leica M6 has not been in stock at any of the big retailers in the US or the UK - until today, that's right the new Leica M6 is now in stock and available to buy at B&Hor  at Adorama for $5,695, and at Wex Photo Video in the UK for £4,850.
