Rangefinder patch at infinityhave I a problem



I have an M6 with a 50mm Summicron. Focus seems to be spot on, but set at infinity, the images in the rangefinder patch don't align. Is this normal? I see no problem with photos taken at infinity, or any others either.

Thanks, Marc, NYC.
Dear Marc,

This is not correct, the rangefinder needs adjustment. It is a small and inexpensive job by a competent Leica technician.

On the older M cameras it is possible to adjust oneself, but not with the M6.

Best wishes.
