A Panda is an M6 that was built when Leica ran out of chrome rewind and
wind levers and shutter speed dials. It's a gorgeous little creature. I had
one for over a year, and regret selling it now.

I'm told they only made 2,000 or so of them before the chrome parts were
available again. Wish they'd do it again. If I could buy a new one in the
X.85 version, I'd do it!
