M6 Good but not great

By Carlos

The grip is well made and appears to be made of brass so as the paint wears off you'll still get a pleasant brassing effect. My only problem is that it doesn't fit the M6 very well. In order for it to fit snugly I had to bore out the back where it aligns with the pc flash port. I also had to bend it a bit so that the metal on the grip didn't rub against the metal on the camera. It's easy to modify but if you want something that works perfectly out of the box for an M6 this isn't it.

Makes my M9 much easyer to handle and hold.

A must for small cameras

Just as I’d written about the model for the M10, you don’t know you need it until you have one and then you can’t do without it. Far superior to Leica’s and much cheaper (don’t even understand why Luca still sell’s their own). Provides invaluable added security of grip when holding the camera with one hand.

Great Tool for the Leica!

This gadget definetly improves the handling of my Leica Monochrom camera, and the quality is excellent. I wish Leica had provided one of these with the camera.

beats the Leica model thumbs down

Shape is more natural than the costlier Leica version. Skip it and buy this.

the color of this grip matches my Leica M-E!!

I am glad to have this grip as the colors match perfectly with my Leica M-E. As you can see there is a small notch for the pin from the camera at the hotshoe. I wish if this grid can cover the pin as well as the other grips do but their color is either silver or black... having said this, I am still happy with this purchase. Thanks for B&H.

It was scratched, NOT NEW

There are significant scratches. Obviously, it was used before. Second-hand item should not be sold as NEW.

How do I make this fit around the M2's bulb sync port? It is directly below the cold shoe and the only way I can think to do it is remove the rubber strip, but even then, it still does not fit all the way into the cold shoe mount, not to mention no longer protecting the finish on the top cover. Any suggestions?
Asked by: Chris
Dan - Thanks for the info, the product description says it is compatible with the M2. I suppose I'll put in for a refund, any way you can put in a request to update the product description accordingly?

Can I use it with Leica M Monochrom (the first one)?
Asked by: Dmitry
Yes. The Monochrom M is essentially an M9P.
