The M4-P was the final iteration of the M4 and made in Canada from 1980-1986. Its main distinguishing feature was its 0.72x range/viewfinder with 6 frame lines displayed in pairs: 35/135mm, 50/75mm, and 28/90mm. Most M4-Ps were finished in black chrome but some were silver chrome.
In 1982, the Canadian Leica factory produced about 200 special edition M4-P Everest 82 models to honor the ascent of Mount Everest by a Canadian expedition. Their tops are emblazoned with a triangular “Everest 82” logo complete with the Canadian maple leaf. The team did use M4-Ps to record their trek.
Leica M4-P Everest 82s do command premium prices. Pristine Everest 82 bodies go for $1,700-$2,000 on eBay; clean regular M4-Ps are trending at $900. #LeicaSociety #TBT
