FOR SALE: Leica SL, Luigi Case, Extra Battery, as new in box!


Hey guys! Hope you all had a GREAT weekend! Today I have a camera for sale, which belongs to a reader here. She sent it to me to check out, and offer up here for sale. There are loads of Leica shooters here, and this Leica SL is just like brand new, in box, with a red leather Luigi case and strap as well as an extra SL Battery. I will also thrown in a TENBA Messenger Bag (I have loads of bags here, so happy to give one away) to the buyer.

This Leica SL, which was my pick for Camera of the Year 2015, is a beauty. I tested it out, and it is in perfect condition. It is uber clean, and when it arrived I thought it was new. The owner said she prefer’s her M, and never really used this SL much at all, a few shots. She is now selling to go back to an M.

If anyone is interested, email me and I will give you her contact info. She is selling the SL body, as new in box, unregistered along with the Luigi Case you see here, the strap, an extra battery (TWO total) and the free bag I will throw in. $6800 is what she is asking for the entire set. New, this would cost you $7450 for the body, $220 for the battery, and these Luigi cases are not cheap. Last one I bought was $600. So we are already over $8000 for new. Add the bag and its an extra $200. So $6800 for the lot is very fair. This is a beautiful camera, and the EVF is worth it for the experience alone ;)

So if you are interested e-mail me at [email protected]

NOW SOLD: 1940’s Leica Collapsable Elmar 5cm – 9/10

Screen Shot 2016-01-19 at 10.57.57 AM


Just wanted to offer up a lens I am selling to all of you here, my readers. It is a special lens to me as I have owned it for years and it is simply gorgeous. It is a screw mount lens but has a thin Screw Mount to M adapter on it, and was on it when I purchased the lens from an older gentleman who was clearing out some of his old Leica gear. Why am I selling? Well, every 3 months or so I have to clear off some thing from my shelves in my office as they start to get overloaded. These days I have one shelf for all of my Sony gear (of which I have the most) and another for Leica and another for Micro 4/3.

This lens, while GORGEOUS..I just never use it anymore as I loved it on my Monochrom which I no longer own. So this is a chance to get a gorgeous perfect copy of this lens. I also have other gear for sale at the bottom of the page, all with fair and aggressive pricing.




I am asking only $200 for this lens and if you are looking for a super compact 50mm lens for your Leica or Sony then this one will give you a classical look. My fave use of this was when I owned a Monochrom. Matched up perfectly to it as you can see in the video below where I used the MM and this lens exclusively. All images you see were shot with this lens:

If interested, 1st one to email me at [email protected] and pay for it gets it. Paypal only, $15 shipping, no fees. So $215 total gets it. This is a lovely copy and yes you can collapse it on an M, I did. I paid $200 for it when I bought it. You can see my little review of it HERE with loads of images.

Also for sale: Leica 90 Elmarit 2.8, latest version before discontinuing it – slide out hood, review HERE. $1250.

Also for sale: Leica 50 Summicron PRE APO  – current normal version w/slide out hood- $1200  – review here

Jupiters have SOLD. Also for Sale: Jupiter 8 and 9 – BOTH for $100 – review of the 8 HERE – SOLD

The original Leica 50 Summicron on the Leica SL (for sale)

A week or so ago a friend of mine sent me a couple of his M lenses to check out as he is selling them and I figured I would take a look, try them out and show some images here using them, and then offer it for sale here in case anyone is looking for a great buy on a Leica 50 Summicron or 90 Elmarit! Optically, this 50 Cron is the latest version before the new APO. It has the slide out hood but is NOT 6 Bit Coded. I simply set the SL up for this lens in the menu before using it. I shot a few images late night while out with family and was very impressed with how this lens renders on the SL. Same as I remember it from the M9.

I find the older 50 cron to be gorgeous with B&W conversions. It’s a classic design and a small fast 50 that does not break the bank. If anyone is interested in this lens, it is being sold for $1250. I have it in hand and its in beautiful condition with leather case. No box. But the lens is a legend. If interested e-mail me HERE. I also have a 90 2.8 Elmarit for sale for $1250 (this version). This was the last version before being discontinued, and I sold my copy 4 years ago for $2500. Today they are going for much less. My fave Leica 90 next to the APO cron. ;)

Enjoy the rest of the weekend! Most images below are all at high ISO of 6400 and up on the Leica SL. Some have had film filters added which in turn, added more grain. I also underexposed many of these and had to bring out the deep shadows, so more noise than usual. Other than that, the 50 Cron rendering is as it always has been. Very “Leica”.

FOR SALE! Sony A7II, Macbook Air, iPad Mini Retina & More! DEALS!

Was doing some cleaning around my office and found a few things I am going to sell, so figured instead of posting on my local craigslist, why not offer these items up to you guys 1st, at great prices?

1st to pay for each item gets it, I can not and will not hold any of these items. Doing so in the past was a mistake as it leads to lost sales. So if you email about the items be prepared to pay ASAP through paypal. Thank you!

1st up, my personal Sony A7II

I am selling my beloved Sony A7II! Why? Well, the A7RII is on the way and I plan on purchasing it, so this one has to GO! I still have and am keeping my A7s, but the A7II will be replaced with the RII soon. I will sell the A7II, in box, for $1025 shipped, which is a GREAT deal for you guys here. I will also include the custom-made and fit Angelo Pelle case and strap for it but the price then goes to $1300 shipped.

I can accept paypal only, but that adds 2%+ so total paypal for the A7II without case and strap would be $1052, with strap and case, $1328. 

A7II has been SOLD and paid for to M.F.



A 2013 Macbook Air 13″ – 1.8 GHZ Dual Core, 4GB Ram, 128 GB SSD Drive. I used this for my travels since buying it and it has never failed me once! I just upgraded to a Retina Macbook Pro, so this one has to go, and I will let it go CHEAP! $400 plus $25 shipping gets it. Paypal fee add 2%, so lets say $435 shipped. I will only accept paypal, USA only.

The Macbook Air has been SOLD and Paid for to H.M.


iPad Mini 2 Retina Display! This has been used maybe 3-4 times. It has been sitting in my bedside drawer for months, as I just do not use it. So , it has to go. I have the box and a leather case from Apple. Will sell CHEAP for $220 shipped. Paypal adds 2% so let’s say $230 shipped. I will only accept paypal, USA only.

iPAD MINI 2 RETINA has been SOLD and paid for to N.K.


Bang and Olufsen flasgship headphones used twice during travel. Perfect mint condition, in box. These sell for $499 but I will offer them here for $300 shipped, no paypal fee ;) These are noise canceling and bluetooth wireless headphones that sound AMAZING.

UPDATE: All items are GONE!


Think Tank Airport Airstream (2011 Model) – $120 plus $20 ship. Sells for $339 new HERE


I traveled with this bag when I did the Seal tours.  It held all of my gear which was two Leica M9’s, a Noctilux, Summilux, 35 cron, chargers, laptop and much more. This is a bag that can be carried on to flight and stowed in the compartments. It is made for airline travel. It has wheels and is easily rolled through the airport or where you need to go. Massive storage. You can read more about it HERE. At $200 off of the new price you will be getting a like new bag, Pics below of the actual bag. If you want it, 1st one to email me at [email protected] and pays the invoice with a credit or debit card gets it!





Artisan and Artist ACAM-7000 – My travel bag for the last 2-3 years – $150


This bag sells for $349 at dealers such as and Dale Photo. I have used this bag and it has traveled the world with me over the past 2-3 years. It is well used and worn in. Very “comfy”. I have since moved in to a new bag (ONA) and am retiring this one. I feel $200 off is a good buy for an A&A bag, especially one with some Mojo :) It’s not perfect, it’s not new but all is as it should be. Red interior with three sections. Zipper front. Fits my laptop, iPad, and accessories and cameras.lenses.

1st one to email me and say you want it gets it at $150 plus $10 shipping for USPS Priority Mail. EMail me here if interested. My review is HERE




Think Tank Mirrorless Mover 10 and 20

These are new, unused. $30 for either bag plus $10 shipping. Both for $50. Email me HERE if you want them. You can read more about them in my review.





Nikkor 8.5cm f/2 (85mm f.2) all metal and heavy Screw Mount lens (with Leica M adapter included) – $450 plus $15 ship. Review HERE where you can see what it looks like.


This is a vintage and yet LEGENDARY lens. Not so easy to find and when you do, they are usually $600. This is an 85mm f/2 lens for your Leica and I will even include an adapter to use on an M as this is a screw mount lens. Yes, you can use the rangefinder to focus and yes it is a beautiful lens. It is HEAVY as it feels like it is crafted from a solid block of metal. Below are a couple of shots I took with this lens on the M 240.

if you want it, email me at [email protected] :) I am only selling because it is just too heavy so going to a lighter alternative, probably a classic Canon 100. This does NOT come with hood, box, caps or case!

This is a killer lens for Nikon 1. I have one in Silver for sale, like new. I am 99% sure I have the box. $100 plus $10 ship! E-MAIL ME IF YOU WANT IT! [email protected]. There is a review by Craig Litten on this site HERE.
