    FS: Leica Monochrom-M (CCD version) Black Chrome

    I am now fully committed to film use with my M system and have decided to sell my Monochrom. I bought this camera new in October 2012 and have used it often, though very carefully (as is my way), since then. The condition is very fine indeed – there are no scratches, nicks, gouges, dents or anything like that anywhere on the body. The only signs of wear are the natural black chrome "brassing" (a kind of faded black) around the edges. The LCD panel is flawless. The baseplate still has the plastic cover in place. The total number of actuations since new is approximately 14,500. The camera had the sensor replaced in Wetzlar in March 2015 (it would have also undergone a proper CLA by Leica at the same time) and has been used on only very few occasions since then. The rangefinder is perfect with my lenses and it functions beautifully.

    I am selling the camera with all it's original accessories, boxes, paperwork and Adobe Lightroom software (I have not used the supplied TAN). The black leather strap was only used once or twice and is in like-new condition. The battery is an original Leica one and was purchased in 2014.

    I'm asking GBP 2,795 plus insured shipping cost. Payment by bank transfer or cheque (latter is UK only). Happy to ship worldwide (with one or two exceptions).

    I have an eBay rating of 100% (username 'mobilefish') and have sold Leica gear a few times here and many times on the LUF classifieds (I have been an active member of that forum since 2003).

    Bump.

    Worth noting that I am VAT registered and if you are outside the EU (or VAT registered inside the EU) the price you pay is net of VAT – i.e. GBP 2,329 (approx USD 3,250).

    A reminder that, if buying from outside the EU, my asking price translates to around $3,000. The CCD Monochrom is a modern classic – if I wasn't committed to film, I'd snap it up myself at this price.

    Not much to lose (IMO) at the price I'm asking. As you know, the condition won't be a disappointment.

    Personally, I think you are going to regret selling this, and if did not already have one I be all over your's in a NY heartbeat.

    I'm enjoying your sample posts so much that I wonder if you should sell it. One can enjoy both film and digital?

    All of us at Getdpi could compromise with regards to the two most recent postings and chip in and purchase the camera and then present it to the Wattsy as a gift. This way he'll will have both sold the camera and at the same time still be able to own it. The best of both worlds.

    And to think, this thread usually only bumps once per week.....not that I've been watching of course! Maybe we might be entitled to a commission when it sells

    I appreciate the comments above.

    I must admit that it does cross my mind that I ought to keep the camera but for the last 18 months or so, a film camera is always first (and second) choice when it comes to choosing what camera(s) to take with me. Maybe I'll take it out on my next 'serious' photographic trip and see whether I wish I'd taken a film camera?

    Sounds like it would be remiss of me not to append another photo taken with the camera.

    It's a good deal for sure, but the timing is just wrong for me. I started getting the large format bug, and now that consumes all my interest (and money) for the time being!

    I'm in the same boat... I'd love this tool but can't seem to find some space in the old budget. I had a chance to handle a 240 this week, what a machine.

    This camera is finally sold.

    I suppose I should sign out with another sample from it.

    I have conflicted emotions about your selling the camera. Sure I'm happy its going to be enjoyed by its new owner, yet on the other hand it means we won't continue to get regular postings of your lovely MM images . Its definitely a tradeoff...LOL

    Thanks, that puts my mind at ease and I have no doubts that its in very good and capable hands. Ian did set the bar high.
