    SOLD: Black Chrome Leica M8 complete:

    Leica M8 in Excellent Plus condition, all factory accessories; in the box.

    This camera has all firmware updates and is a green blob free version. It was calibrated by Leica so it focuses perfectly, LCD in perfect condition (I had a peel-off protector on it which I've removed for these photos), never removed the plastic bottom protector, so the bottom is mint.

    Extras: leather wrist strap and unused Giottos tempered glass screen protector still in the package.

    Current M8 goes for about $4K ... my price $2,350. shipped to lower 48.

    Been wanting a M8 but choke on the cost? Here's your chance for not much more than a film M.

    Payment by check needs to clear before shipping, Pay Pal e-check prefered but must wait for it to clear, other PayPal fees covered by the buyer.


    Before anyone else says it, yes, I am getting ready for the M9 ... which will be almost 4X the price of this camera.

    You haven't mentioned the magnifier - is it included and which one is it?

    Thanks for pointing that out. The mag is not included. I didn't remove it because it has an adjustable diopter which is set perfectly for my eye ... I will take it off if the camera sells.

    I have two of these. One is a 1.15X and the other is a 1.25X magnifier. Both have adjustable diopters on them. I use the 1.15X on a M8 for wide lenses so I can see the framing, and use the stronger one on a second M8 with 35mm on up lenses. They made a huge difference in fast and sure focusing accuracy.

    A fellow somewhere overseas got them for me because they are not Leica made and cannot be sold in the USA. If I told you who, then I'd have to kill you.

    Seriously, it was so long ago that I forgot who I got them from.

    I believe the Leica one will accept their diopters, but I'm not 100% sure about that. Leica's version cost more.
