Leicaflex SL film camera body

The Leicaflex was the first series of 35mm single-lens reflex (SLR) cameras manufactured by famous German makers 'Leitz'. The Leicaflexes were fully mechanical cameras.

In 1968 the Leicaflex SL was introduced, with the SL standing for selective light. The Leicaflex SL featured TTL metering with a 5% selective measurement of the subject field, corresponding with the diameter of the circle of the micro prism. This meant that the Leicaflex SL was the first SLR camera with selective TTL metering.[5] This was considered theoretically superior to other systems that relied on the average reading of the whole prism. This model also featured a depth-of-field preview button. There were a few cosmetic revisions including the change of the colour of the shutter dial from silver to black and the relocation of the batteries to the camera's base plate. Models were produced in silver chrome and black paint.

This sale is for body only, no lens included.

The Camera is in very good vintage condition and working well mechanically. All mechanical functions are tested and working really well including the light meter. Light dust in viewfinder. Battery not included.
