Looks like maybe an M-A because of the black krome finish. And it seems it is a film Leica because of the rewind lever on the front. But did they cover over the RF illuminating window so it looks like an M10?

no frameline illmumination window. appears to be a button on the front. it's gotta be a 240 or 246. no "bolt head" makes me think M 240 with some black tape.

edit* i'm thinking it may be an M10 due to the black button on front and the prominent chrome at the mount.

Well, I think I'm leaning toward M240 type. Mine has some chrome around the lens mount like that. And, I don't see enough evidence of the ISO dial on the VF end. I think it would be more apparent.

MD? I think I would still see that black spot on the front. But black tape or fancy post production could take care of that -- or the red dot of an 240.

Ah wait. That "rewind button" on the front is the M240 button. The MD doesn't have that button.

Funny thing, I don't even know what that button is for and I own one of these cameras. For video, right? That would explain why I've never pressed it.

Anyway, for me the mystery is solved. Its an M240 with the logo masked (copyright reasons?).

i believe it's an M10 for the following reasons:
1. the button on the front is black. only the black M10 has a black button.
2. the finish looks more like a black chrome (M10) than a black paint (M240)
3. the VF is wider (longer in width) than the M240 VF

i'd bet... say... $500 it's an M10.

almost certain it is an m10 with taped red dot,
for the look of the viewfinder window

Well, didn't know about the black button, and the finish does appear to be black chrome, so no wager from me. Not to mention I have never gambled and unlikely to start now...(not a religious thing, just haven't felt the need).

But, perhaps it *could* be an M240? -- perhaps this one! :D

Good pointers.

By the way, just in case anyone’s interested, my friend Scully is selling an American Force Independence SS and Ironman tire package (https://4wheelonline.com/af-independence-ss-nitto-ridge-grappler-package.303947.0). If anyone’s interested, feel free to PM me.

I use the button for the exposure compensation function (easier, for me, than using the menu).


Funny thing, I don't even know what that button is for and I own one of these cameras. For video, right? That would explain why I've never pressed it.

Looks like an M10 to me. From that frame, if you look close you can see the ISO dial.

Edited this about 1000 times. It's an M10 with a half case.

Funny owning both Leica and a Mazda they are both as reliable as each other.:D
