Re: What is the useful life of a Leica camera?

I received the quote from Leica today, in the mail, even though my email was on their form! Looks like $1,000 USD to adjust collimation; repair apeture stopping mechanism; replace diaphram setting group; repair damaged housing (news to me!) ; clean the sensor.

If I buy a used R8 there is no guarantee how long it will last. Used is with in $250 of the repair so i am going to have it repaired.

Shooting with a Nikon D-80 as a back up and a Leica D-Lux 3.
