I would say that the body is the minor problem, an M3 in a good shape can be found around 650 dollar and the R3 even for about 400 , but the lenses stays on a very high price level. Different in America ? greetings, henk thijs I can only talk about R lenses, but last summer when I was in Germany I compared Leica R prices with a cousin-in-law. As far as we were able to tell, on the used market in Germany one pays a lot more for R lenses than we do here, perhaps 1.5 to 2 times as much. As an example, I got a 28/2.8 in like-new condition for $600 from KEH; he said the price in Germany would be at least the equivalent of $1000.
