We've all heard of that college student who bought an M2 for 5$ in a thift shop. I've never got such a deal but I've managed to get Leica equipment for low prices in the past. Such as a very clean M2 that I got in an eBay auction for 600$CAD. The shutter speed had to be adjusted, and the vulcanite had to be replaced. Other than that, it is in excellent condition. I later got an M262, which I also bought on eBay, for about 3500$CAD. The sensor was filled with dust and oil spots, and the focusing mechanism had to be lubricated two days after I recieved it. (Those problems where not specified by the seller) It looked like new back then, but after about six months of use, I've got some paint removed on the corners and a cut in the faux leather. It has been faithfull ever since. Then, yesterday, I looked for a replacement for my 35mm ZM 2.8 on the internet and ended up looking for pre-ASPH summicrons. I then stumbled uppon a 35mm Summicron on keh.com for 1080$USD. No picture of the actual lens was shown and generic pictures of a Type 4 where shown instead. It was listed as "UG" (ugly). Giving this extremely low price and the 180 day warranty offered by keh, I jumped on it. (I'll keep you guys updated on this purchase.) What are the good deals you guys managed to get on Leica equipment?
Hey guys! A new member here As stupid as it may sound I still cannot believe I finally got a Leica camera myself. Been waiting for this moment a very long time, gone through a "GAS cloud" switching systems from A7II, X100T, X-Pro1 and finally settled with an M8.2 which I got in mint condition, 105 shutter count, for only 1100€! I first thought there's gotta be something wrong with it, for the price to be set so low, but due to irresistable price I immediatly bought it and did not regret a single €. I'm using it with previously acquired Minolta M-Rokkor 28mm f2.8 coded, and without the common white spots problem, which I won on Ebay for 310€ incl. hood, uv/ir cut filter and I find the combo superb in it's performance. I'm wondering what's the actual price range now in mid 2016 for a used M8.2 as I can't seem to find any, anywhere. Seems like I had lots of luck Best regards, Andrej
