Subject: [Leica] M6 finder question

The MP finder conversion for the older metered Ms has the same mask set 
as the M6 that you dislike. The MP mask set has an additional lens 
which helps reduce the dreaded finder white-out. I had both my cameras 
done and I think it was in the 200+ range each. Check with your Leica 
distributor for a firm quote.
