Best websites to buy used Leica in Europe?

Recommended Posts

Advertisement (gone after registration)

I'm based in the UK and on the lookout for a used TL2 in the EU (no import tax). Does anyone have any suggestions? I've checked out the main UK sites and the best price I've found is £1159 for a mint example, does that sound like good value? I've seen they are priced from £1495 new so I'd be hoping to pay under 1k. Any input appreciated. Cheers

Or Best Leica dealer in the UK?. Leica Manchester has a good record and often lists the body you seek. Try also Leica UK in London and Red Dot Cameras who also sell traded in and ex-display items.

I got a used TL2 last autumn from the Leica Shop in Vienna. It was a similar price to what you have found, also effectively mint. The only thing missing was the strap lug blanks, and Leica sent me those for free.

I've bought from them before, both direct and via the Westlicht auction, and found their descriptions very reliable.

As an EU resident you will be paying VAT when buying anywhere in the EU.

I was referring to import duties on top of delivery costs to the UK, which makes ordering from the US etc. very expensive

Ah - I see. Yes, that is a bit of a lottery.

I purchased my 55-135 in Spain from Andorra and didn't pay VAT.
