Some might argue that any thread today about Leicas is a study into human character :whistling:

Would we feel the same about an M3 if it was exactly how it is, but made by Chinon?
Would Chinon then be Leica?

(picked Chinon randomly)

I have owned and used an M3, M4 and M5. I can say without out a doubt IMHO there is NOTHING special about those Leica cameras. Do I enjoy using them, yes. I also enjoy using my Nikons, Hasselblad's, Rollei's and in the past Minolta's.

I gave away my M3 with a 50mm Summicron. So to me it was worth less than $10 but the joy the recipient gets from it is worth more to me than the market price.

I got to fondle an M3 the other day. Now I'm looking for a $10 Leica too.

Chris

Wait until you fondle a Hasselblad and your life will change for the best.

Got a Hasselblad you'll sell for $10? :D

Chris

A special for you: I will type out the word Hasselblad in a fancy script and save it as a pdf file which I will sell to you to $10US.

I find it interesting that so many in this thread are provoked by watching the market forces at work. Would they rather see that the minimum price for a Leica was regulated by law? Sounds a bit un-American to me.

Mr Eli is clearly prepared to wait for a seller that will accept his offer, rather than compete by raising his price. I sincerely wish him luck, and good health in the meantime.

The market forces are clearly at work here. But I do envisage a day when a mysterious benefactor steps in just because she has had enough of this thread.

I'll one-up Eli then. $10? I'll take one for FREE!

Maybe if the OP asked for the $10 Leica for impersonal use? :wondering:

I came in here to post the exact same listing. The camera market has indeed gone mad.

No, just eBay greed looking to make fast money from people who are not aware of the market.

With inflation, I'm considering to post a WTB ad for a $12 Leica for Personal Use. If these Leicas are going to make my photography as good as they say on the internet, I want one too!
