With two upgrades on the market (-P and -R), plus the M10-M and the not exactly vanished M10-D, there are a  large number of owners who have happily upgraded or joined with a mere M10 - (nothing to add) and some of them feel they must be missing out on something important.  This is a bit of psychology that car manufacturers have long known.  Until recently, Leica restricted these evil instincts to their celebrity-oriented  gold-plated special edition marketing  teams, and let the engineers just release better cameras when they  were ready.  But stay the course!  I bought a lovely M2 when the Nikon F had become the professional standard, and use it to this day.  (I also have an M10-R.)

... yes, I think so, too. The M10 was a big success for Leica and comparatively many people bought one. But in a camera universe ruled by GAS and some kind of “easy buy, easy sell” mentality, probably many people bought a M10, played a little around with it, missed the autofocus and/or the video capabilities ... and sold it. And with Covid-19 strangling many businesses affected people sold their luxury cameras to pay their rent and other more important things in life. With every buy-sell-circle the camera becomes a little cheaper and more affordable for more people.

So, on the one hand we have more of these cameras on the second hand market, and on the other hand the camera becomes more accessible - which is good for people who are interested in buying a M10.

I  just searched Ebay UK... two results came up for "Leica M10". One is an ASC and the other result was a case. 

There's 72 results "from International Sellers" and a lot of those just included "M10" to attract you to an accessory etc that they're selling.

So either I'm missing something, or there really aren't many for sale at all. I'm sure if you search for "Sony A9" or "Nikon Z7" there would be far more.

Gave it a try in Ebay Germany. A number of 57 results for Leica M10! Least costing one for 4700 Euro.

Looking at the results though, almost 20 of those are the Monochrom or Limited Editions etc. There's still around 30x M10s for sale but it's a four year old camera and there's millions of people living in Germany. I'm sure there's a LOT more 5Ds, Sonys, Panasonics etc
