Leica R8 Black Reflex Camera Body Clean w/ Motor-Winder


  • $395.00

SKU: 20693
Barcode: 1930-154

This Leica R8 black camera body is in excellent condition cosmetically, mechanically and optically. Serial #2413083. Early serial number. Made in 1997. Second year of production example. This is the desirable Leica R8 camera. 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). A great camera to use. Does not come with it's original battery cover. Instead it includes the optional Leica 14209 Motor-Winder R8 base plate attachment.
