    Firesale!: M8u, 15mm CV, 35mm ZM, 75mm Summarit

    I have the following for sale at AMAZING prices. All prices INCLUDE free Priority Mail shipping in the CONUS only, as well as Paypal fees.

    1) An upgraded Leica M8 ("M8u"). I am selling my Black Leica M8 in perfect working condition. Cosmetically it has some scratches and and the paint is wearing in some spots, but nothing that would affect actually using the camera. I am the second owner. The shutter and framelines were upgraded, and a new glass cover was added to the LCD by the first owner. The shutter has about 8200 frames on it. I am selling it because I just bought a M9 and this has to go.

    Photos are located at http://petermendelson.zenfolio.com/p482900028

    Included with the camera are the manual, CDs, battery charger, battery, car charger and adapters, body cap, USB cord, camera strap and I will also include a Leica E46 UV/IR filter. I do not have the original box. You can see the past paperwork for the camera in the photos I posted as well.

    I am selling it for $2650 shipped to the CONUS only, shipping and Paypal fees included. I think this is an excellent price given that it is the upgraded version of the camera.

    I also have the black grip for the M8 (shown in the photos) which I am selling separately for $150. If you buy it with the camera I will include it for only $75 extra.

    2) A Voigtlander CV 15mm II lens for the M mount. This is the latest version that works great with the M8 with no adapters or modifications needed. It is sharp, functions perfectly, and the glass is mint. The black paint has rubbed off on some of the edges of the focusing tab on the side of the body, but the lens is so small who cares? It comes with the box and caps. The price is $450. I also have the Voigtlander 21mm external viewfinder which works great with the 15mm CV on the M8. It sells for $128 on the Cameraquest website. I will sell it for $80, or only $50 if you buy it with the CV15!

    3) A Zeiss 35mm ZM f/2 Biogon. This is an amazing lens for the price and I liked it just as much as the Leica 35mm Summicron I had. Diglloyd recommends this as his first lens choice for M9 shooters in his review of the M9 and various lenses. The lens operations perfectly and focuses smoothly, and the glass is spotless. The body is also clean except for a barely noticeable cosmetic scratch about 1mm long on the side where it says "Made in Japan." I can't seem to find the box or papers but will keep looking since I could have sworn I had them somewhere. However I am included the optional hood, which works on the 50mm ZM as well. The price is $700.

    4) A Leica 75mm Summarit with the optional metal hood. I bought this from Popflash a couple of weeks ago, and realized after I got my M9 that I really don't need this focal length when I have a 50mm. I paid about $1450 for the lens and hood in absolutely mint condition and it is still in mint condition since I only used the lens once to make sure it works as it should. It comes with everything - boxes, caps, manual, packaging, etc. It hurts to take the loss but I will sell them for $1075 together.

    Feel free to send me any questions. Feel free to check my excellent extensive feedback on Fred Miranda under the user name petermendelson.

    Thanks,

    Peter
