I’ve got far too much stuff in my dryboxes; it’s time to let somebody else enjoy the bits of gear I’m not using. Up for sale today, we have five items; prices are in USD excluding shipping (depends on where and how you’d like it sent, of course) but including PayPal fees (you can use a credit card, too; let me know and I’ll send you a checkout link). Everything is in perfect working order and has been QC’d by me personally. If you’re interested in any of the items or have a question, please email me. Same goes if you think my prices are out of whack – make me an offer! Thanks, MT
Leica 2/28 Summicron-M ASPH, 6bit. SOLD
Condition – Glass perfect, some tiny cosmetic marks on barrel grooves.
Includes – Original hood, caps
Notes – An outstanding copy optically; I bought this one over a boxed one at the same price because of the (noticeable) difference in optics. I’m increasingly a fan of one-body one-lens, and since I can’t afford two Leicas and prefer the 50/1.4 ASPH, this has seen very little use.
Nikon F3/T, rare black version. SOLD
Condition – This one has obviously been through the wars. It’s a user, not a collector. Paint loss and edge brassing letting the titanium show through. I’ve shown it in the worst possible light in the images. Fully functional, of course.
Includes – Camera, body cap, battery.
Notes – Black F3/Ts are very rare; here’s one that you won’t mind using. I’ve got three film Nikons – and this one just isn’t getting any use.
Ricoh GR1v black. SOLD
Condition – Excellent, very minor signs of use. Fully functional. No LCD problem.
Includes – Camera, battery.
Notes – Sourced from Tokyo and checked by GR-series expert Bellamy Hunt of Japan Camera Hunter. I’m just using it a lot less than I thought I would. I reviewed this very same camera here.
Carl Zeiss ZM 2/50 Planar. SOLD
Condition – Perfect except for slight mount brassing (see picture). Optically excellent, no play in focusing ring.
Includes – Box, papers, original caps – as new
Notes – The 50mm RF to have if you can’t have the 50/1.4 ASPH – works great on M4/3 cameras with an adaptor, too. Preferable to the 2/50 Summicron-M and not that far off the 2/50 APO-Summicron-ASPH.
Gitzo GH1780QR head and spare QR plate. SOLD
Condition – As new
Includes – One extra QR plate. I swear I’ve got the box somewhere, but I can’t seem to find it. Might show up between now and then.
Notes – Lightweight and sturdy. Full bubble levels built in. I’ve replaced it with an Arca-Swiss P0 which suits my macrophotography needs better.
