    Feeler: Safari Leica M8.2 Set, Mint+

    This is just a feeler. I am not sure that I want to sell it, but here is my set, one of the 500 Safari M8.2 sets ever made. Totally complete, totally mint (except for super-slight wear on the neck strap), in the original boxes including the outer brown cardboard box, blank reg cards, Billingham case never ever used. These listed for $10,000 and when they were available sold for $8995. I will sell it for slightly less if someone is interested. PM me if you have had your eyes on this for a while.

    By the way, aside from the silly white M8, this is the only way to get a silver anodized 28mm elmarit (super light weight, not like the silver-on-brass ones!)

    Brad,
    you do have a treasure trove of goodies. I liked the Safari Edition. Perhaps after I digest my new home purchase in SF !

    And you wouldn't believe what phenomenal black & white photos you can get from it! Honestly, I don't know if I am going to sell it after all.

    If you decide to not sell it, would you consider selling the bag?

    No, sorry. I can't break up the set. Thanks, Bob, for the link.

    If you want a perfect M bag . . . then the Fogg b-laika is really a great deal nicer . . and you can exchange emails with bee into the bargain!

    (I do have both)

    Just this guy you know

    Look closely and you'll see that none of the bags on B&H or Adorama are exactly like the Safari bag in the kit. Check the straps and oval patches and the bottom corners. The combo case is close, but only in black or tan.

    (like it's a big deal! )
