    SOLD EU Beautiful M9-p Chrome exc++ 7 months warranty

    This is my beautiful chrome M9-p camera. It was bought directly from Solms on July 11 2011. It has 5902 shutter actuations and has always worked without problems. There is 7 months left of the two year warranty.

    I would like 3,800 for the camera.

    Ideally I would do a face to face exchange.
    It comes with all the paperwork, boxes etc. (although not the Lightroom license)
    It has been my second body, and has had gentle use.
    The strap, charger and cables have never been used and are still in their wrapper. The base plate was hardly used.
    As far as I can see the camera is pretty much perfect. There is a very slight bright scratch under the eyepiece. It's very hard to see and very hard to photograph, but you can see it in the close up in the first shot below. The Sapphire crystal LCD is perfect.
    The attached photos are unretouched apart from the removal of a dust spec on the Framelines lever.
    Here are some snaps






















    Please PM me if your interested

    Re: FS EU Beautiful M9-p Chrome exc++ Price Drop

    Well, okay then - nobody seems interested, I'd rather sell it here than put it through ebay, so, lets say 3,500 - that sounds like a good deal. Incidentally, I've got a good 100% ebay rating as well.

    all the best

    I wished the camera is in the US. Not know what the custom duty hit will be is what preventing me from buying this

    Vincet,

    I'm pretty sure there's no duty (in the US) on photographic equipment. You should check.

    Search all over the web and all I can find are people talking about importing from US to UK. Not the other way around. If the camera is stil around on Monday, I might call my custom broker to check. Hate to get all excited and then be hit by a 5% duty.

    Hi Vincet
    I'm sorry I can't help you with the tax (it may be different in different states). I have some interest from someone in Italy - but I doubt it will have gone by Monday.

    Vincet - there should be no duty on cameras when coming into the US. You can look it up in the US Harmonized Tax Code to confirm - though it seems the website is currently down.

    USITC - United States International Trade Commission

    I have purchased camera gear from the UK, Germany, Austria, and Japn with no duties. Be careful that a carrier doesn't try to charge "brokerage fees" though, UPS is notorious for this. DHL or EMS has never charged me.

    This is the exact same reason it's so hard for me to find an M9/M9-P -- because importing one would kill me with 12.5% in customs charges of the full declared value even if using EMS/USPS.

    GLWS regardless Jonathan. I think people are just holding out to see what the new M is like. Market is so slow these days!

    I don't think it's helpful to claim that there is an import duty without citing the basis for that claim. I don't think there is any duty on cameras imported into the US.

    Who knows where xtianyves is located - maybe not the US.

    Anyone interested can peruse the pdf below - paying attention to section 9006.10 and above.

    Thanks GDI. I don't have a problem with shipping to the US. But it obviously needs to be insured, so there's no way to hide the value.

    I would definitely insure it Jono! The good thing is the declared value shouldn't impact a US buyer.

    Hi there
    Thanks for that - I sold a Noctilux to the States for a similar value a year or so back, and that all went smoothly

    Okay - Price Drop 3400

    Reducing the Price to 3,400
    (including carriage to Europe - US at cost - paypal fees at 3% - bank transfer or cash free!).
    If it's in the UK, I can probably meet you and do an exchange.

    all the best

    Sounds like a great deal! Jono is a topnotch person to buy from!

    HI Vivek Thank You! - I wish I had a Monochrom too - let alone one to sell!
    I think it's a good deal as well, but I'm not in a hurry, I guess that supplies of the chrome M9p will dry up, and sooner or later someone will come along who would prefer a little used chrome M9p and 500 to an ME!
    Here's Hoping!

    Shocked that this hasn't sold yet...such a great deal on a beautiful camera. I "upgraded" about 2 months back to a chrome M9-P...lovely camera, which I will keep along with the MM due to the "CCD" look that I love so much . Leica M should be good, but it doesn't invalidate the M9-P, which will continue to take amazing images for a long time to come!

    Thanks Ashwin - I'm a bit surprised as well - maybe it's a bad time.
    I'm in no hurry! I'd like to sell it before the Ms ship (Feb/March). In the meantime it's snuggled up in it's box while I shoot with it's battered black pal!

    Tisk, tisk, no price policing is allowed on this forum.

    FYI, prices in the USA and England/Europe are very often different.

    Also, you can cherry pick some low ball sale item, but that doesn't mean every M9P will sell at that price.

    Things devalue only if you sell them. They are valuable if you use them.

    My apologies for not being up to speed on the forum rules. Thought it would be helpful for the seller if he needs to get it sold. Bob has removed my post, and given me an infraction. Again my apologies, and I do hope the sale works out.

    HI There
    I missed the post - maybe the price is too high - if that's the case I'll wait. I don't actually need to sell it until the M arrives in the new year, of course, prices might drop before then - or they might stabilise - I'm willing to take a chance, but in European terms it's nearly a 40% discount off the new price - for a mint condition camera - sounds reasonable.
    all the best

    Jono I will take it..looks like Leica is starting to discontinue the M9-P and Like Ashwin and many others I am all for the CCD look. That & I have no doubt you take care of your gear. I will send you a PM now for paying instructions..

    "shocked that this hasn't sold yet...such a great deal on a beautiful camera."
    If you had followed market prices closely you wouldn't have to be shocked. Prices here in Europe on current M digitals are going down steep the last months - indeed I see higher prices in the US - but expect lower prices by years end. Just got my M8.2 out since they don't fetch nice prices anymore, leave alone the org M8: now for sale on about Euro 1100.
    And the M9 is going very fast too. Guess the M9-P will follow soon as the M comes near..
