Hi Carl, Why do you mention that the best choice is the later M4-P (158xxxx and higher)? What is wrong with the M4-P with the serial number below 158xxxx?

However the M4 seems steep and its price is nearing that of a mint M6." Your best choice is a clean, later model (#158xxx and higher) M4-P. Prices range from $600 (user) to $1,200 (collector). They are more sturdy than a M4-2, easy to repair and the viewfinder matches the M6. My M4-P , a second body to the M6, accompanies me with a 35 or 50 Summicron and clip-on MR meter. Second bodies are great for experimenting with different films at your convenience. Enjoy! Carl Muhlstein P.S. On the lookout for a clean used Noctilux. Private email.
