They've only sold 4,000 of them. Maybe Leica had market research to say
that it's more limited production and would not be practical to make two
versions, when they were going to be updating the M6 soon after its
introduction? Who knows. If it sells well as the TTL version, maybe they'll
come out with a chrome version, then eventually a platinum version with
that cool snake skin...

I'm going to buy an .86TTL some day.
