Just for those of you still wanting either of these cameras, B&H Photo has ALL THREE of these in stock right now. I know many of the readers here have been waiting for the M-E as it offers a different look to the M 240 due to the CCD sensor, so here ya go!

Another big fan of Ken! Fantastic individual to deal with for Leica gear.
Plus 1 for Ken Hansen. I think the AOL address is just old school. Nice person, great service.
Ken made my Leica purchase a breeze. I would not hesitate to use him again.
How was it different than buying anywhere else? All the purchases that i have ever done were a breeze. Amazon, B&H, Adorama, Cameraquest etc etc
p.s. buying Leica stuff is a breeze. Getting it repaired is a nightmare (my M-E’s sensor failed after 9 months of use. Warranty covered it but it has been waiting, at Leica HQ in NJ for 4 months for parts. Leica Germany does not have sensor stock on hand. Supposedly)
Dealers make the biggest difference when you do have a problem. Buy from the big website in the sky and you are an order number, deal locally or with one individual sales person at a dealer, then it becomes a relationship to keep whole not just a repair.
Oh how I want an M-E. Sadly, its still a lot more money that I can spend right now.
I would not buy anything Leica from anyone but Ken Hansen. He is the BEST!!!!

What makes him the best?
I would like to know too as typically, an AOL email address doesn’t bode well (especially for a business)
Ken is a legend and A #1 Leica dealer. In fact, if it were not for Ken, this website would probably not exist today. But anyone you ask will have nothing but the best things to say about Ken.Just give him an e-mail or phone call..place an order..you will see what I mean. I only recommend top dealers and shops here so if I recommend them, they are tops. Ken gets my highest recommendation. End of story 🙂
I would first refer you to the November 5th, 2013 post on this site entitled “Leica M 240 IN STOCK! Black or Silver!”. In the comments section you will find testimonials of very fine folks (whose voices are stronger, experientially, than mine) and their positive experience in working with Ken Hansen. My voice is rather small and insignificant, but I will say this:
There is a reputable Leica dealer just down the street from where I live. I gave them 4 or 5 opportunities over the course of several months last year to sell me what I was looking for with respect to various Leica products. But for whatever reason they failed me in every case. They either didn’t know what they were talking about, didn’t have in stock what I was looking for (when I knew that stock shouldn’t be an issue–they must keep a low inventory, or some-such M.O.), and if it wasn’t in stock, it would take 3 months to get to me. The key Leica salesperson there was a bit on the snooty side, and would never go the extra mile in selling me what I needed when I needed it. Ken Hansen, on the other hand, is the exact opposite of this. He is the nicest guy you will ever work with. His knowledge of Leica products is second-to-none. He operates an honest business. He will get you the best possible price on Leica products and accessories as Leica dictates. His service is stunningly FAST and friendly. I did over $40,000 worth of Leica business with Ken last year (business that could’ve potentially gone to my local Leica dealer, had they been willing to work with me) because Ken delivered every time on overall sales, service, and product knowledge. You simply can’t beat Ken Hansen.
Exciting news. Ken Hansen’s the best of the best! 🙂
