Leica M (Typ 262) For Sale covid-19: day 253 | US: GA | info | exit

$3000 net to me. Transaction through PayPal only. Shipped via buyer’s preferred option, fully insured.


Up for sale is my beloved Leica M. Purchased in January 2017, this has, by far, been the best camera I have ever owned. The colors are amazing; the body is well built; it performs like a German sports car. It has never let me down.

The sale includes:

  • Leica M (Type 262) body: it’s in perfect working order with minor signs of wear. The bottom battery door has some brassing, but I never removed the protective sticker that came on it. The body itself has a screen protector and maybe a minor scrape or two. Please see photos. I’m not sure what the shutter activation count is, but it’s likely around 10K.
  • Battery charger and cables.
  • Neck strap (never used).
  • Original box and manuals.
  • Thumbs-up. Very brassed, but in fine shape.

I’m selling it because it’s time to try something else. Really, this is just a test to see how much I could get, and I’m still reluctant to even try.

If you need a lens, I have a Voigtländer Nokton Classic 40mm f/1.4 (with original box and 3rd-party lens hood, ND filter, and Hoya UV filter) that I would include for $375.

I would consider a trade for a Leica SL (Typ 601) or a Fujifilm GFX50R.
