In 1977,Leica introduced the M4-2. It was very similar to the original M4,except it was designed to be easier to mass-produce.

When the M4 was discontinued for the M5 its sales did not live up to Leica's expectations. The M4 was brought back for the 50th Anniversary in 1975. In 1976 Leica decided to stop producing the M camera line. In 1977, due to popular demand Leica deceided to reintroduce the M4-2 and moved its production facility to Midland, Ontario, Canada. The M4-2 (and M4-P,M6 and M7) exist because of this move.Both the M4-2 is an M4 with a hot shoe and the ability to use a motor drive. It does not have a self timer. The M4-2 has frame lines for 35,50,90 and 135mm lenses.
