FS: Leica M2 and 35/2.8 Summaron with Hood
I have for sale my Leica M2. I bought this recently and I'm not going to be using it like I thought I would so I'd like to move it on to someone who will enjoy it.
Here is the description from the seller I purchased it from:
"The camera was aligned and had it's shutter speeds checked out by Youxin Ye about a year or two ago.* * The shutter curtain has a small spot that was patched due to a small light leak, this does not affect the functionality of it what so ever and there are now no light leaks.* There are a few dings, one is on the top right corner of the viewfinder and the other is on the bottom baseplate.* The viewfinder is bright, vertical and horizontal alignment are accurate, and the ding on the corner of the body does not affect it at all.*
The camera has had Grip-Tac covering for less than a year, the grip-tac makes it much easier to hold.* The griptac was bought from Cameraleather.com for $24 and you can read more about it here http://www.cameraleather.com/colors/griptac.htm.* I will also include a Tom Abrahamsson soft release from http://www.rapidwinder.com/ which is $19 alone.
I'm calling this a USER Leica M2 because it is not in the prettiest cosmetic condition, but mechanically it is ready to use. "
Please note there are marks on the top plate from what looks to be the installation and removal of a Leicameter.
The is not a collector's item but a good user M2 with recent CLA that will serve you well for years to come!
