I will be out all day today shooting and doing some shopping for my 8 day road trip coming up this weekend (will update from the road!) but had to point out all of the used deals going on some great Leica gear! Check out the sidebar to the right. A 35 Summicron ASPH for $1799, a mint Silver 50 Summicron for $1199, A sweet chrome M7 for almost half price! The 90 Cron ASPH for $1999 and even a somewhat rare Silver 24 Elmarit in like new condition. Lots of deals going on today.
Buying Leica used is a GREAT way to add to your collection. Many times used prices are so much lower and is an easy way to try something out. For example, the silver 50 summicron. I just saw a silver 50 Summicron sell for $1350 by a private party but B&H has one for $1199. Great deal on an awesome lens and an easy “no loss” resell if someone bought it and did not like it. I am on the verge of buying a used Leica film M and not sure which to go for. M6, M7 or MP. Whichever I buy, it will be used as a new MP and M7 these days go for $4500.
OK! I am off for the day to go shoot the Leica M7, Oly E-PL1, and test the 18 Elmar and 24 Elmar lenses (which seem to be pretty nice in my initial test shots). I will have a post later with some cool Friday links so until then, HAPPY FRIDAY! The weekend is here!
