Selling because the rangefinder format just isn't for me. I won't talk about what the camera is good at/bad at since there are plenty of reviews. But I got some really nice photos from this camera.

I purchased the body from KEH (in ex+ condition), as wells as the lens (also ex+) less than 1yr ago. Also purchased from KEH the Thumbs Up grip (ex, though it does have noticeable brassing), two of the batteries, and a couple of the filters (Ex/Ex+). Another battery came with the camera, and I purchased one new from B&H. All are Leica brand, though I guess Leica doesn't label their batteries. Also comes with caps, lens hood (Zeiss brand), Leica charger, and Nitecore USB charger. The filters are all B&H brand and are two neutral density filters (0.6 and 1.8, for -2 and -8 stops, respectively), and a yellow-green and green.

I would argue the body and lens are more in Ex condition by KEH standards. They look really nice. I bought them to be used, but I took extreme care with them, as I always do with my equipment. I did take the protective plastic cover off the baseplate--I know some people like to keep them on, but cameras are meant to be used. I also mistakenly thought that label with all the info had a protective cover as well and started taking that off, then wasn't so sure it was a protective cover. You can see where I partially peeled it off and then re-stuck it, but it does affect the cosmetics of the bottom in case it matters.

I confirmed with Leica that the camera does in fact have the updated sensor--you can shoot them with an e-mail with the serial number to confirm for yourself if you wish.

I am willing to sell the lens separate from the body, but I will not sell accessories separate from the lens/body. I prefer not to sell the lens on it's own prior to the body selling, so local people can still check out the camera if needed.

Whole set: $4500
Body + body accessories (batteries, charger, grip): $3500
Lens + lens accessories (filters, hood): $1400

Sorry, no trades. Cash only, likely meeting at the Sheriff's Dept parking lot (one of the "Safe Exchange" locations).

If you email me, please say what your favorite tree is, or send a noticeably non-robotic e-mail/text. I get a lot of spam when I post on craigslist, so I won't respond to any generic e-mails.
