This thing takes absolutely killer pictures. 10.3 megapixels, great condition, and 4 lenses with UV filters.

Lenses:
90mm
50mm
28mm
21mm
All have UV filters.

Hot shoe Leica flash module hardly ever used.

Hand grip.

Battery, charger, boxes included. Backpack too if you want it, some dog damage on the backpack.

LMK if you’re serious I’ll put you in contact with the missus.

Price TBD, best offer. You will have to discuss with her as some of this stuff is worth a lot. 90mm lens alone is worth over $1500.

A full frame canon is not even half of that?!?!?

With that many lenses? She's being offered close to that from a company that will re-sell it. She may be a bit flexible on price.

Look, I don't really understand camera world. From what I can gather the Leicas are kind of the air cooled Porsches of that world, where people buy them to say they own one and for the nostalgia / quality feel of using it. Even if a Golf R is faster, easier to use, and half the price.

without the lenses, yea the full frame canon would be more for sure.

Yea bruh, its worth whats its worth in the right market, but that's a goddamn lot of money for a digital camera.

My understanding is the lenses are worth more than the camera body, which is pretty outdated anymore. The reason the lenses are worth so much is they're extremely high quality and fit on the compact RED cameras that are becoming popular to shoot movies with.

But that's just what I've heard. I have no real clue because I'm not up to speed with what goes on in photography world. :iono:

Is this better than my Samsung S5? I know mine's a little out dated but it takes killer photos of my cats and is good enough for hipster shots of my food from restaurants to post on my insta bruh. You said it's digital? Does it take good screen shots?


Look at that quality derp

Lisa has a bunch of professionally printed and framed photos from her trip to New Zealand shot with this thing. We have 3-4 of them hanging in the house now. The prints are good to about 10x12 size. Beyond that, YMMV.

Light range is excellent, this camera is great at low light shooting. A bit more geared to landscape and portrait shots because it's a rangefinder, and focusing with a rangefinder takes an extra second. You CAN shoot motion with it but you have to be quick. It will take killer avo toast pics.

GLWS man!

Might be worth it to try to find some photography FB groups and what-not and post there.
That's a lot of cheddar, but if the price is fair someone will be willing to pay it.
