Lowest serial Number on M8


Recommended Posts

Just for fun

 

Who has the lowest serial number on his M8.

 

I want to make a start with 3111004 (purchased by the previous owner on 11 August 2007).

 

Interesting to know also number of shots and if (and how often) the camera has been returned for repair.

When I have enough data, I will try to apply some statistics on this (this is my normal job at Eurostat).

 

So please report your serial here!

 

Thanks

 

John

There are 2 possibilities:   1) Directly on your M8: Turn the camera on. Press the right arrow key 4 times. Press the left arrow key 3 times. Press the right arrow key 1 more time. Press the info button. Scroll down to body debug data. Press Set. Scroll down to NUMEXPOSURES. Turn camera off to exit   2) Use a small program on your pc with a DNG file that you can find on home Simply drag and drop the dng pic into the window from that little program, and it will give you the number

Mine's early but not that early: 3105715   It's been fired 26,700 times, of which 3736 are mine since I bought it just over two years ago. Obviously I've got no idea of it's former history but the outside has been well looked after (no dings or scrapes) and the finish has a nice 'well handled' look. It has always performed perfectly for me. I'm really enjoying my new M-E but I'm glad I didn't have to trade-in the M8 to fund it.

Serial on mine is. 3329402 no clue how it is

Sounds good, but I doubt you'll have a bunch of data of statistical significance...

My M 8 has the serial number 3100744.

It has been bought 28 th. November 2006 from Photo Altkofer in Bayreuth/Germany.

It was revised by Leica like all early m 8 bodys.

I had to repair it after I had thrown it on the floor with a flashlight mounted; the acessory shoe had to be replaced.

 

Yours sincerely

Thomas

Recently bought a used M8. Serial number is 3100986 so I'm guessing its been around for awhile now! Shutter Count is: 13,527

 

Doesn't look like it has had any of the updates on it either (still has 1/8000 shutter) haha. Takes great pictures though
