  1. Hello everyone. I just purchased my first Leica yesterday. The body is a IIIg from 1957 and the lens is a 50mm Summicron f/2 from 1956. I paid $300 for the lens. However, upon looking at the lens (front and rear glass elements) with a flashlight in the dark, I noticed there was a little haze coming from inside the glass. I'd like to get this lens cleaned. Anyone have a ballpark figure on how much a cleaning like this will cost?
  2. PRICING THOUGHTS & MARKET SIZE 10-2020 EXPANDING LEICA MARKET THROUGH PRICING ADJUSTMENTS Has Leica priced only for the super rich not the middle class or even worker-who-can-save? With M10's going USED at $4,5000 TO $5,500 most people can not afford them. Even used only the super rich can afford them. If they had sold the new M10's around $4,500, about $2,000 above the $2,500 that the Asian cameras sell for, then used the Leica would sell for $2,000 to $3,000 where many could afford them. Thus a used Leica's price would compete with new Asian camera prices. This would give Leica a double market to sell to, both new and used, and greater market penetration (more sales), and a reason to expand their repair department which is greatly needed. ECONOMIC SYSTEM PRICE POINT AND SIZE OF THE MARKET If you can sell the trade-in camera, then it is normally easier to sell a new camera, is it not? By hurting the trade-in used market with high priced used cameras, it must be harder to sell new $7,000 cameras. Since the used cameras are selling at $4,5000+ then it could only be to a few very rich people - thus used cameras compete with Leica's own new camera market. I realize it is not this simple but I am sure you get my point. Could Leica could end up like Pentax & Rollei? Leica might have a better "economic system", at a more reasonable new price and greater sales, with the accompanying better/larger repair department. The existing repair department could not fully fix my Tri-Elmar 28-35-50 lens. Is there demand at $3,500 to $4,500 new body price, for an M11? At $3,500 you would likely convert some new-camera Asian-camera buyers to new-camera Leica-camera buyers. That is about 40% more for a body than the Asian market can provide at $2,500. At $4,500+ you probably loose this convert. LOCAL SALES Probably due to this overpricing effect on both bodies and lenses, no camera store sells Leica in my home town. My town is in a CSA (combined statistical area) population of 1,096,961. Our top camera store told me years ago they could not carry a camera unless they could sell ONE a month, so they dropped Leica. Lower used prices would give camera stores something to sell profitably (selling new cameras is hardly profitable I am told) and keep them in business. TRADE-IN COMPETITION & PRICING Trade-ins are NOT reasonably priced, when they are priced above the price of new Asian cameras, cameras that frankly exceed the capabilities of any Leica. But of course the Asian cameras are a horror story of complexity to operate, so many users dislike them. Asian digital cameras remove the sense of being an artist and turn you into a technician. ALTERNATIVES & COLOR FEATURE As now priced, Leica sends me to Panasonic S1, S1-R, S1-H or better yet Nikon Z6, Z7 which has very very close to the Leica-Euro color hues when using old Leica lenses as reports show with pictures. Sadly with M10-R the Leica-Euro-Color may be lost in order to extend the dynamic range of the smaller pixel sensor? Why not give a Euro-Color Leica-Look check box in the menus to select this color saturation level and loose the one or one-half stop of brightness that is needed to achieve it? As long as the dark areas go black, and not to Noise, then it would be acceptable for many users. Please take my comments as a hope for an expanded Leica market. I also realize, that the market resolves all issues, and has a sort of fairness all its own that we must submit to. I do enjoy the economic study.
  3. Has anyone experienced moisture ingress on their DMR? I've just sent mine off for repair; is it likely to be worth the cost?
  4. Hey there, I tried finding the info on the forum/ google search but was unfortunately unsuccessful. A friend of mine gave me his old S2 body (yes, very nice friend ;-)) as he bought the newer version. He also told me that he tried cleaning the sensor and it looks somewhat scratched. I have not yet been able to afford a lens for the cam so I'm not sure how bad this will affect images, but: What is the (approximate) cost if I have to replace the sensor of my S2? Thanks much, Nils
