    Leica M2 question

    Some one wants to trade me a Leica M2 is very good condition for my Nikon D80. Do you think this is a good trade?

    Depends. What is the condition/worth of the M2. How bad do you want the D80 right now. In another year the D will drop in value more than the M2. In 5 years you can probably get several D80's in trade for the M2.

    Only you can decide.

    Besides this is a film forum. Of course the Leica is the better deal.

    On this forum? Absolutely...in any shape except thoroughly trashed paperweight condition. Remember that you will need to budget for a lens to put on it. The M2 has a monetary value of probably $350 to $700 depending on condition. Less if it is the trashed paperweight I mentioned. Of course, you must think about more than monetary value, so it's a very individual decision.

    I have begun to dabble in the RF world and have a Minolta 7s and a Konica Auto S2 and the seem like tey are going to be fun. I guess if I find I am not a RF'er kinda guy I can sell the M2 as easily as the D80???

    yeah I'd say so. I'd jump on that like stink on a monkey if the M2 is in any sort of good condition.

    It is conceivable that you will be able sell the M2 for at least what you paid for it, should you decide you don't like it. (This is a curious phenomenon that seems to follow most vintage film cameras.)

    A CLA may be necessary, add some $$ for a good lens. (Unless it comes with a lens, then, what a bonus!)
