How much would you be willing to pay for such Leica M system
Mar 29, 2011

Hello,

I came accros an interesting offer, ... but still I wonder how much would you be willing to pay for Leica M system / kit, consisting from the following pieces:

  • Leica M9 (silver, less than 1 year old, in original packaging)

  • Spare battery for M9 (in original packaging)

  • 1.25 x viewfinder magnifier for M9 or M6 TTL (in original packaging)

  • Luigy black lether strap for M9 (original M9 strap is still unpacked in the M9 box)

  • Leica M6 TTL 0.72 (in original packaging, it contains MP viewfinder/rangefinder with less flaring/reflections than the standard M6 TTL viewfinders)

  • Leica 28mm F2.8 ASPH Lens (in original packaging, + hood cap)

  • Leica 35mm F1.4 ASPH v2 Lens (3 months old, in original packaging)

  • Leica 50mm F1.4 ASPH Lens (in original packaging)

  • Leica 75mm F2 APO ASPH Lens (2 months old, in original packaging)

  • Leica Flash SF 24D (can be used both with M6 TTL or with M9, in original packaging)

  • Leica X1 (silver, less than 1 year old, in original packaging)

  • Spare battery for X1 (in original packaging)

  • Spare lens cap

If you had a chance to buy such kit (in Europe), how much would you be willing to pay, considering that all listed stuff (except for SF24D Flash) has been just returned from Leica Customer service in Solms, where all lenses were adjusted for optimal focus accuracy on both cameras, M9 and M6 TTL. Besides, M6 TTL has been through Leica's standard service procedure to adjust and verify everything adjustable.

Lenses 28mm F2.8 and 50mm F1.4 are not new, but they work perfectly and there are no visible traces of use - they were used already on M6 TTL. Lenses 35mm F1.4 ASPH V2 (new model!) and 75mm F2 APO ASPH are new. When 75 mm has been bought, it was not focusing acurately at mid range distances, and that was the main reason why the whole M kit has been sent to Solms.

X1 has also been in Solms in order to have the botom plate (battery/SD card door) adjusted.

The only option to split the kit is to separate X1 camera from the M system,... the M system can be bought only as a kit - because it would be silly to split it now, when everything has been adjusted for optimal focusing.

Looking forward to get your oppinions, thank you!
