M9P - is this a good offer??

Hi folks,

I've been thinking about getting M9 as a supplement to my D700 for several months now. I like IQ, size, whole concept and "stealth" factor of it...I do not like the price. Nothing new to be said about it...

Let me go to the point: I have possibility to buy 6 months old M9-P ( + extra battery ) in "as new" state ( I have seen it ) with less then 2000 images taken with it and all the papers & warranty for the rest 18 months together with Zeiss ZM 2/35 + hood ( bought together with camera - hence also 6 months old with warranty )

Price: 5300 € ( ca. 7100 $ ) for the combo ( new price here in Denmark for both items would be ca. 7300 € ( ca. 9700 $ )

Ps. I have noticed the the sensor need to be cleaned ( nothing dramatical though )

The seller himself offered, that we together visit Leica retailer where he bought the camera so I can be assured that the warranty is valid and ok. So I guess it should be no problems about that...

Any inputs on what more to check? Known issues? The camera looks completely as new, rangefinder seems to be aligned ( I made some very sharp test pics at f2 )...but I guess I'd better check everything now then to be sorry afterwards...

Thank you very much!
