It was an excellent deal.
ANY used camera should be bought like a used car,
and you always have to assume it needs repair.
Buying mint is usually a bad idea.
For six bills, from a good seller,
you could have got a sound chassis, 2 super lenses.
If it was a turkey, you could have returned it.
Next step, off to DAG and have it returned to A-1. Total cost, a grand, and you've got a great camera at a great price, that you could have shot forever.
This is EXACTLY the kind of leica that SHOOTERS USED to hunt for,
and today, ought to buy.
