FS: Leica M8 "Panda"
I have traded my M Monochrom for an M240, so I no longer need this M8 for color work.
This camera is an M8 Panda—some refer to it as an Anti-Panda as well. It was made near the end of the M8 run… According to an email exchange with Mark Brady at Leica NJ, it was a limited run of approximately 100 (see attached screen shots of the emails). It's a rather unique camera!
The camera is Black Paint with silver accents (dials, frame line lever) and black dot instead of red. There is some brassing on the bottom and top plates. Shutter count is just over 12,000.
In addition, the camera spent some time at Leica NJ last October and received a CLA, new cover, pixel column restoration, repaired the rear cover (which had come loose when I removed a Schott cover), and some other adjustments (see repair estimate).
Included with the camera is:
~ 2 Leica UV/IR E39 filters (1 black, 1 silver)
~ 1 Leica UV/IR E46 filters (black)
~ Inner camera box
~ 2 original Leica batteries
~ Leica Battery Charger
~ 1 third-party battery
~ Barton1972 Braided Style- Chrome (shiny black) - Length: 105 cm
~ Thumbs Up EP-1S (Silver)
~ 1 8GB SanDisk Extreme Pro SD Card
I am located in Madison, WI. Pictures taken with this camera can be seen here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/mtsull...7649625923055/.

I'm also interested in possible trade for a 50 Summilux-M v.II chrome or E46 pre-asph or 50 Rigid Summircon, plus cash your way or mine.
