Check KEH and see if it is a bargain. If it is, I'd give it a go. Leica gear is always simple to resell. I've never used the Leica SLR stuff, but I can tell you that their lenses really are the best optically and mechanically....but you definitely pay for the privilege. If the price is good, it is basically an extended rental where you can get your money back at the end if you don't like it. They are not the same as Minolta lenses.
