The sale continues! Selling off gear to raise money to pay for medical bills.
The following items are for sale:
1) Leica M5. This really pains me to sell, as I've tried and withdrew a few times over the years. Meter doesn't seem to work (though when I bought it it was working fine), even with a new zinc-air battery. But, shutter speeds all seem to be correct and last rolls of film all came out exposed nicely using sunny 16 rule as well as spot meter (Voigtlander meter). Some minor spots of paint loss, but overall in good user condition. Two spots of vulcanite chipped off, and shown in pictures here. Rangefinder bright and spot is aligned. My favorite, but need to let it go for now. Will throw in an unused grey griptac vulcanite replacement kit from cameraleather. Red Mr. B Softie and strap not included. Asking $550 shipped and PP'd.
2) Canon 50mm f1.4 LTM lens. Glass is in good shape, a little play in the focus ring and paint wear on the barrell, but overall great performer. Didn't notice oil/issues with the blades. Comes with original Canon front cap and rear cap, as well. I'll throw in some accessories that came with this lens, too, including a yellow filter (original). Asking $275 shipped and PP'd.
3) Canon 25mm f3.5 LTM lens. Relatively rare lens, and a good performer in my opinion. Glass is in great shape, no play at all and lockup tab works well. Nice little gem of a lens, makes both R-D1s and M5 very compact when paired together. Even better on a mirrorless such as NEX or m4/3 body. Comes with original chrome Canon front cap and plastic rear cap along with authentic Canon 40mm UV filter and finder. Asking $450 shipped and PP'd.
4) Jack Spade Field Computer Messenger Bag, Tank (green color canvas with orange interior). This bag was used as my travel bag, I was able to fit the M5 lenses, film, tabletop tripod, and a Nikon F3 lenses just fine. Note that this is a normal messenger bag, but I used it to carry my camera gear with extra inserts to protect them. Separate compartment for a 13" laptop. Overall seldomly used as I don't travel much anymore, so this bag is in great shape. I have another messenger bag similar to this so am selling this newer one instead. Asking $60 shipped and PP'd.
I can combine items and give a discount if you buy more than one item from me. Not looking for trades at this time, as I need the capital to pay for medical bills. Will use USPS priority or FedEx with tracking, CONUS only. If you want more photos, please send a message at minglee at gmail dot com. Thank you.
