    Paring down my M8 Kits

    Hey everyone
    I am going to go with just one M8 and would like to sell the other along with some spectacular lenses.

    Ask Jack or Guy about me and they will tell you that I am anal and take the best of care of my gear.

    So here goes

    M8 Silver........near mint...........................$3495

    Silver Chrome 24MM Elmarit...Asph...Mint....$2600

    Silver Chrome 35 Summilux.....asph...Mint......$3200 This baby has the old Titanium Contax hood and cover and looks just spectacular

    50 Chron Chrome Silver...asph.........Mint....$1195

    90 APO/Asph Summicron.................Mint....$2495


    If you would prefer a black M8 I have one of these also but with a couple of very minor paint chips on the edge of the upper housing. I am not going to sell both bodies but if black is your thing I will sell this for $3295. Just came back from Leica service in N.J. where the body was totally checked (and assured by Linda Sales) and the rangefinder readjusted.

    Of course I will photograph any item of interest to you. Paypal is accepted. Shipping and insurance is on you

    Best

    Woody hold that silver until Terry see's this. She is sort of looking. She is going to kill me.

    Well, I for one, am curious what a Titanium Contax hood looks like on a Silver Chrome 35 Lux. Would love it if you'd post that one in this thread, for us to see.

    I just won the "What technology will Terry show up in Carmel with" award, and we are still almost a full month away from the workshop... Heaven only knows what other new tech gear she'll "obtain" between now and then!

    Helen,
    I think we may live within blocks of each other judging the locations of some of your shots. Since I assume I will have two bodies if you want to go out and shoot together one day and use one of the M8s it would be a lot of fun.

    Woody that was a good deal on the M8. You got me to thinking about it. I am just glad Terry pulled the trigger and saved my bank account. Good luck with the rest of your sales.

    I don't know if you got my private emails but of course I want you to have these lenses. If you don't still have my wire transfer info let me know and I will send it and I need your shipping info.

    I wait to hear from you

    Yes it was a good deal and I* am glad Terry got what she wanted. I feel my second M8 is reliable enough that I just didn't want this much money tied up in redundancy although I admit I swallowed hard.

    Alongside my M8 I am now shooting Nikon and I want to get either the 400 2.8 or the 500 4.0 and that takes some serious cash. So like all of us, I am going the routed of disposition of some things and acquisision of others . Ain't gear head syndrome wonderful.
