Locally, there is a pre-owned M6 with a Leica branded flash, third party grip (not RRS) and Zeiss 35mm 2.8. All are in great shape, but the top plate has some pitting bubbles. I thought it was just textured finish until they told be it was most likely due to sweat or salty moisture.. Seller wants $1650. I dont know the serial #'s or years manufactured yet. Is this worth further pursuit? I see Keh has EX+ M^'s, body only for like $1800...

Thanks!

EDIT* Well, I said F it and bought it. Seems really nice. Based on the internet date codes, its roughly 1997. Body is in great shape, with the exception of the bubbly top plate. Its really minor though. The lens is a 35mm 2.8 Zeiss Biogon, but the hood is an aftermarket photodiox. I dont care as I use cheap hoods for my Fuji x100t...Flash is a Leica SF-20, in decent shape but cant confirm if it works as batteries are absent. Camera came with a photoequip.net plate/grip. Seems solid, and I looked it up and its a $150 item...

I think Ill enjoy it!
