    I have a Leica R4 which has some problems and may need serviced. I posted a thread on this a few days ago.

    i) the light seals are going -- there are no leaks, but at some point soon they could do with being replaced.
    ii) it seems, when I compare it with other cameras, to back-focus a little. I'm not sure if this is an easy fix, or not. But since I'm not 100% committed to the R system I'm reluctant to send it for adjustment if I might get out of the system anyway.

    Also, Summicron-R 50mm f2. This is in good condition, no scratches or fungus. Used, so not as new, but a good lens. I'm pretty sure this is a ROM lens, not a 3-cam. I can provide pics.

    Reasonable offers for either -- I expect the R4 isn't worth much. I'm in the UK and happy for any prospective buyer to inspect either lens or body in either London or Oxford. I generally prefer face to face trades anyway, although I would post, too.

    I'd also consider a trade for Pentax K-mount or Leica M-mount lenses, or for a good K-mount film body. I also shoot more 120 than 35mm, so I'd also be interested in MF cameras [but not TLRs, I already have a nice Rollei].
