I've done it to more than a few threads, Eli. Others I just don't click on. Easier than being a grouchy gus.

That said, I don't exactly see why there's an issue with this thread at all. It's a couple years old. Venerable, even.

Cheers!

That's something I feel a lot more people here, or on any non-political forum would be much happier for doing.

Raising blood pressures is never the goal of any ask, looking away or hitting ignore is better for your being, for which I wish Godspeed to all.

Well a few weeks ago the £ and $ were almost at parity, luckily the Pound has bounced back a bit. There's a UK dealer with an excellent reputation who has a clear out of excess stock every now and again.

Last time I bought 3 nice condition Jupiter 8 lenses for £5 each, and Fed bodies again working perfectly for £5. So you can get a Soviet era Leica copy for not far off the OP's budget.

OK, it is time to close this thread - with happy end. I will send you my Leica CL that I barelly use. Please send me PM with your shipping address. Shipping to USA insured with tracking number from Germany is 47 euros, with 10$ --> total cost is 58$ US.

Payment --> you will buy me APUG subscription around that cost once when you receive the Leica.

I know that I really should not, but if the OP does not take your offer I will, maybe.

This is a very nice offer, which I'll take advantage of, if it stands after this post, however, as desirable as a CL is, it's neither Barnack nor M, and at this point, I feel comited to my original ask, others here are somehow invested in this thread, and still more are happy to react negatively.

I'll happily send you my address and honor your terms but I'll leave up this ask, noteing the "found CL" in the title or here.

PM, on the way.

Cheers and Godspeed to you, your's and All Here.

Your setting need to allow the PM feature or shoot me a line at

****|***@gmail.com

My second post continues to be blocked as a "bump" and wants 72 hours from now.

If I take any camera. I'm no selling it to buy other.

A CL is a very nice camera and I'd be lucky to have and use it

Please don't send ******* a camera. He has thousands of dollars worth of very expensive gear, he can afford to buy one, and he's already said that though he'll take it, it isn't good enough. Surely, you can find a poor student or a talented artist who hasn't got a lot of money to give it to; someone who would truly appreciate it. I'm getting ready to send some LTM lenses and a spotmeter to a young man I know in Turkey who is doing some great B&W documentary work, and he is still in school. I'd take that gear and smash it with a sledgehammer before I would give it to someone like Eli.

@eli griggs and @darkosaric - It is best not to put your email in a public thread. I've edited it out, and tried to assist you if you wish to be in contact.
And @chriscrawfordphoto - your opinion on this request, and the opinion of others is noted. If the people involved are aware of what they are doing, the choice is theirs.

Chris, I do have a Hasselblad system, the majority of which was a gift to me from a friend at Christmas Time, several years ago, and I've been able to add bits and pieces over the years, with mostly stimulus and my wife's help, she works in a grocery.

I am otherwise without income, being an Atomic Vet from the Enewetok Clean-up in the late 1970's, and in 1989, I became unable to work a regular job, because of illnesses, including very bad authritus from the bad Psoriasis that started on the atoll.

I've never received welfare, disability from SS or the VA, just medication for the constant pain and symptoms of several diseases that assignment has left me with.

The Government just recently recognized us vets as atomic veterans and I hope to finally get compensation for all the forty-five years of pain and social isolation.

I was able to "work" as an artists for a few years, with help from my family in a cubical studio in an art league, but that depended on what energies I could raise up to go in and work.

I also earned part of my studio fee from desk sitting the League for part of the week.

I tell you this no to solicit feelings from you or others, but to avoid responding with more anger or negative feelings by saying something like "Haters gotta hate" or worse.

Telling others I can afford thousands of dollars worth of kit is a flat out untruth, and much of what I've bought here and elsewhere over the long years of my photographic life has been through payment arrangements.

Go ahead and gift whomever you like with your resources and keep the hammer in the shed

I am no bothered by such things, and I encourage everyone here to do the same, as they see fit.

However, do no go telling tales about me and my situation, that Hasselblad kit and any analog Leica camera are apples to oranges and used differently.

Godspeed and Regards, relax and just hit "ignore" on this thread, you'll be happier for it, hopefully

Finally. Darkosaric, if you share your mailing address by PM, pvt conversation, i’ll send you something as well, given the gesture.

Congratulations to you both, may it be solace, and a “Great Griggs Thanksgiving!”

Will you Eli Griggs share with us an image of the Leica CL and then images of the best from your first roll, soon after you receive the gift?

sharing is caring

someone cared enough

I thought I'd seen everything, but this is certainly new. I'm off to realtor.com right now to ask for a $10 house. Although having owned a few homes that ate, and ate, and ate my money, that could be one of these "watch what you wish for, you might just get it" deals.

I posted about this recently but for a free house, check out the cities of Buffalo, Chicago, and Cincinnati for basically free homes, off the Lakes, etc for artist that pledge to fix-up, invest into old homes in areas they wish foot traffic and an arts district to be establish on those streets.

Other cities and States have similar "free housing" so check around.

Wait, someone actually offered a CL and he says he doesn’t particularly want it? Give it to me!

Friend of mine got a Leica M4 for free. I have given many (not so expensive) cameras before.
I have M3, M6, M4, M1 and If - so I will not miss CL at all. I tried to sell this CL here, and nobody - absolutely nobody contacted me. I put very low price, with note that I am willing to negotiate. And I also believe in karma - what you give on one place - comes back double and more on another place.

There is a local repair shop that started business at the height of the pandemic shut downs. Initially, I gave them a handful of non-Ai Nikkor lenses to have some stock. Over the last few years I'll bring in items for them to sell but let them keep my share. Often it comes down to, do I really want to haggle or would I rather have the sale go to support a small business.
Reading through the various forums about the difficulty finding a decent shop to repair their camera, I feel lucky to have a few choices and close to where I live. If they make some money of of gear I want to move along, so much the better.

Now that’s a happy ending if I’ve ever seen one
