LEICA LEITZ R8 10080 CHROME SLR FILM CAMERA BODY +BOX +STRAP +CAP CLEAN AS IS
-Made in 1997
-First released in 1996, this was the first step Leica took with making the R series cameras on their own (no longer worked with Minolta) loaded with many camera functions and one of only two 35mm SLR cameras to be able to accommodate both a film back or digital back (the second being the Leica R9)
Unfortunately, this camera was working in store but with testing our motor winder, the mirror failed and does not flap up or down.
-Speeds B, X, 16" - 1/8000
-Cat No. 10081
-Matching serial number box
-No dings, dents or major marks
-Leatherette is all intact
-Top/bottom plate show virtually no signs of wear
-Lugs are clean
The camera is in MINT condition cosmetically
-Shutter speeds are accurate
-Meter LEDs working
-Depth of preview mechanism and lever do not work. As a result the camera
doesn't stop the lens down when the shutter is fired.
-Viewfinder is bright and clean
A great opportunity if you can fix the mirror. A wonderful camera that was tested and working but is being sold AS IS because the mirror does not work.
