My recent blog post and summarized feedback on the Leica S007 after using it for over a year, including my recent trip to Iceland with behind the scene photos. This review is mainly based on my own personal experience of using this system in combination of a few S lenses in the field. http://www.faran.gallery/blog/2016/7/15/the-harsh-winter-of-iceland You can follow my work on: Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/farannajafi/ Travel / Architecture: www.faran.gallery Fashion and portraiture: www.faranstudio.com Thanks!

Hey folks. I am relatively new to the forum and to Leica world, although far from new from this world!! Senior citizen status is reluctantly acknowledged. I am building my Leica collection and just acquired a Leicaflex in beautiful condition, described as "Camera are perfect working condition, speed and meter are accurate, with macro prism screen, screen are clean and clear, but with visible haze,This will not affect your viewing or focus. " The haze in the screen appears to be cement deteriorating, but with the micro focus center dot, it should not affect focusing. The shutter curtain is beautiful, and appears to be practically unused. All speeds work and sound accurate. Viewing though the back, the shutter appears to properly cover the full image area at all speeds. The winding mechanism is smooth as butter. The body covering is mint. The back hinge shows many tiny bubbly spots under the black paint. Mirror lock up and the self timer work fine. The interior of the camera looks mint. The problem is with the battery chamber. The center terminal of the chamber is detached and is rattling around loose. It was obviously broken. There is no way that the meter could have been checked, unless the damage was done by the person checking it - for example, pulling the tab up to produce more tension on the battery. (Yes, I know that can happen - thankfully I learned that little lesson on a throwaway cheap body of a junk camera). My dilemma is this: I have just begun my Leica collection (all to be users, not shelf queens) and do not know if I should return this body for a refund (only $110 purchase) or keep it and possibly leave neutral or negative feedback to the seller. The seller states in their listing that they do not offer partial refunds - either love it or send it back at the buyer's expense. Given that these bodies are a good 50 or so years old, I don't expect a $100 camera to look or operate as if it just left the factory. In your experience, should I expect to be able to pick up a Leicaflex in the near future for anything approaching this price, or am I better off keeping this one and continuing to be on the lookout for another one? If I keep it, if it were you, would you give no feedback, neutral, or negative feedback on the transaction? I would appreciate your input. I have learned a lot perusing this forum, and I am grateful for the body of knowledge and experience represented by its members.
So sehr ich diese Marke ob ihrer tollen Geschichte, Technik und Objektivqualität liebe und gerne mehr einsetzen würde, aber für den professionellen Bereich ist sie leider durch das schlechte Service unbrauchbar. Das Reinigen eines Objektives, welches mit 3,1 Arbeitsstunden a 149.- netto veranschlagt wurde, dauert über ein Monat !! Rücksendung erfolgt erst nach mehrmaligem dringlichen Anruf. Darum werde ich weiterhin für den professionellen Bereich die Japanischen Produkte bevorzugen, den die haben verstanden worauf es ankommt. Schade Leica!
