    Leica M5. 3-Lug, High Serial Number. Great User.

    This is an Excellent 3 lug late serial number (136xxxx) M5 which is meant to be used. It's not a shelf queen with a small ding on the rear to the right of the eyepiece, a bump under the vulcanite under the back door and some little wear here and there but....man can it shoot. It actually is very nice looking as well.

    All functions solid, meter spot on, all speeds work as they should and the VF is clean and clear. A fantastic camera, my quietest Leica, beating out the M7s I used to own. Camera comes with a spare "zinc air" cell battery which has a terrific life in this camera.

    Price: $1100 Shipped & Paypal'd. Confirmed addresses please.

    Please let me know if you have any questions about either camera. I'm going to miss it but it's just not getting used enough as I'm on a Contax G2 kick with my film work.

    Thanks!

    Aww, man, I'm actually planning to buy one of these soon, but I won't have the funds for two or three months yet. Sweet camera. Good luck!

    Nice one! I'd be tempted by my wife thinks my MP, M2 and CL are enough for me! She just doesn't get it....

    you tell your wife?

    listen, bub, to the uninitiated all black cameras look alike -- CL, M5, same-same. My wife once told me "hey, you always have a camera, i don't pay attention."

    SCORE!

    plus I have to use my own money to buy them

    there is no way i can see to delete a message you realize was stupid, so I'll just say, in the words of gilda radner, "never mind." and let it go at that.
