Extra Info: I bought this camera from a mature owner while working at Teds Cameras in Sydney about 20yrs ago and have owned it ever since. I believe it's a 1996 model so it was only about 4yrs old when I bought it.

I've used it sparingly over the years and it shows. It has no major wear visible other than some light brassing on some of the edges. No dents or scratches at all. The Leica M-Series cameras were always the ultimate camera for me and I still feel the same, I've never had as much joy using any other 35mm camera. I love rangefinder cameras much more than SLR cameras, the users view is never interrupted and you can see outside the field of view with any lens 35mm plus. If you are keen on film photography the Leica M-Series is where it's at IMHO. The lenses have a quality that can't easily be described, yes they are sharp but they have a 'look' about them that I haven't found on an SLR system. It is wonderful with wide lenses as the limiting factor of the mirror is removed allowing for low distortion, sharp and contrasty images.

Of course those interested in this camera will already be aware of it's heritage and unique capabilities, as well as it's collectibility. 

I have a 24mm aspherical lens also for sale separately. 

I have resisted selling this outfit for many years but alas I feel it's the right time for me now and I hope it brings someone else joy like it has me.

It has been unused for some time but was stored in a dry area. I live in a unit that has no damp issues so there is not even the smell of mould on this camera. 

I don't believe it needs a service but a fussy buyer may want to have it serviced just to have it 'as new' mechanically. 

Inspection is welcome.

Please feel free to ask questions.

Price is firm.
