Hello guys, a new member here on getdpi I'm a Canon and Sony user but more and more look to add MF system to my setup. Since I'm still at school doing my dental residency, I'm planning to pickup a used Leica S (alternatively, I also consider Pentax 645z). I also see many brand new lenses being sold in Asia for attractive prices. So, a couple of things I'm interested to know, and I hope you guys will make it more clear to me.
1. What's the Leica's warranty policy on new gear purchased from abroad (gray market)? I know Nikon refuse repairing gray market gear even at a fee.
2. Is there some kind of a trade-in program in Leica? I'll be done with my school next year, and will be able to afford a new body. So, if I buy a used one now for a year or so, will I be able to trade it for a new one?
3. My hobby is portrait photography, especially outdoor portraits. I could find very few reviews on some Leica portrait lenses, such as 100mm f2 Summicron. Can anyone comment on the quality of images/bokeh/sharpness wide open?
Thanks in advance!
