  • $395.00

SKU: 22557
Barcode: 2031-388

This Leica R8 chrome camera body is in mint condition cosmetically, mechanically and optically. Serial #2412822. Early serial number. Made in 1997. Second year of production example. Desirable chrome finish 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 beautiful camera overall. Great to use. A must have.
