The R6 (1987) was manual exposure only with a
Leica developed and manufactured mechanical shutter. Aimed at
professional photographers and significantly more expensive than the R5,
the R6 depended on batteries only for exposure metering and so could be
used without power. Meter modes were selective and integrated (centre
weighted) including TTL flash exposure. Viewfinder backlighting was provided which also illuminated the aperture setting.
The R6.2 offered a higher shutter speed (1/2000s).
