Here's a website with some information..

Looks like they started installing a bubble level at some point in the 1960's when the F6 was still being made, so maybe the "B" means it's the model with the bubble level?

Hi I am afraid that's wrong, although a cute idea. The bubble level was introduced with the FVI

The sequence is: FI, FV, FVI, F6, F6B, F7 and F8 with the cameras before the F6B having lots of variations/minor modifications during their production runs. The main difference between the F6 and the F6B are better gears and a coated lens in the F6B

lol thanks for the correction!

btw, I thought the gear improvements were made from the F7 to F8?
