    FS: Leica M8.2 - $850

    FS: Leica M8.2 - $850

    I bought this camera here from a GetDPI member in January, 2013.
    From what I can tell from the filenames, and unique file ID, it seems that it had taken a little over 21K images when I got it, and is now at a little over 24K, i.e. I have taken almost 3,000 pictures with it.
    This is a lovely little camera, an improvement over the original M8, with better frame lines, quieter, and, I believe, better glass on the LCD. I havenít had any problems with it.

    There are two minor issues with it:
    1. in the viewfinder, the far right LED doesnít seem to work, i.e. when the display is showing a 1/1000 shutter speed, it shows as 100C, rather than 1000.
    2. the LCD on the back suffers somewhat from the tea/coffee stain problem. It was fairly strong when I first got it; seemed to fade away, then seemed to get worse after a long cold drive, and seems to be fading again. Mostly I do not even notice it, but if the image is quite light, and if I tilt the camera away from me, it is visible. I have tried to show it in an attached picture. Of course this has no effect on the image files.

    Included:
    Leica M8.2 camera body, used
    leather wrist strap (Blackbag)
    newer, smaller, battery charger (only used a few times: bought to replace the original when it died)
    four batteries (two Leica, two other?): I am not sure of the condition of all of these - they all will show full charge in the camera, but at least one of them doesnít seem to finish charging on the (new) charger.
    two UV-IR filters, 39 mm, I believe (one is on the 35 mm Summarit at the moment)
    body cap

    Price:
    US$850, PayPalíd and shipped (insured, tracked) in North America.

    References: I donít change equipment very often, but I have bought and sold a couple of items here on GetDPI, and on eBay my ID is rinpung.

    I also have a Leica 35 mm f2.5 Summarit lens, with hood, also bought on GetDPI, with box, for US$1100, which I will sell with, or after, the M8.2.

    Thanks for all the interest. I have had a couple of people in town contact me about the camera, which would be more convenient. If they don't pan out, I will get in touch with the people that have messaged me, in order.

    Thanks.
