    Of any modern camera the Leica M6 is the LEAST likely to give you any problems
    with IR film. There's nothing exotic or advanced within that body to impact IR
    film.

    There are no IR LED's in it, so sure. It helps if your lenses have IR
    markings to offset the focus.

    Cheers,

    If not just move the lens out 2% of the of its focal length to correct for IR
    focus.
