    I got myself leica M6 – and I am very disappointed with frame lines 50mm (and also it is not so quiet as M3 from my friend, but I can live with that). I know I can get external viewfinder, but I was wondering maybe bessa or zeiss icon or some other leica is better? Which body will give me most accurate frame lines with my summicron 50mm (focus on infinity)?

    Thanks,

    I believe the frame lines on my M4-P can be adjusted perfectly for one lens. This may be true as well for your M6. You may wish to ask Leitz if this can be done.

    no need to get another. at infinity, just add 3 frameline widths.
