	Try Glazer's Camera, 430 8th Avenue North (or 8th & Republican, several
blocks north of the downtown area); phone is (206) 624-1100. They'll be
open on Saturday this weekend. They have new and generally a good selection
of used M and R equipment. Don't expect many bargains --- they sell mostly
to pros, and they routinely send used bodies back to Leica USA for a CLA
before reselling them, with a consequent bump in the price. I've bought a
CL, an M4-2, and a lens or two over the years and haven't had any complaints.
	A few blocks east of Glazer's is Optechs (Fairview & Republican); phone is
(206) 433-9900, and they're also open Saturdays. They are not Leica dealers
per se, but occasionally have some used Leica equipment for sale; for the
past month or so, they've had a decent-looking M4-P in the display case,
asking (as I recall) about $1350 for it.
	Cameras West, at 4th & Virginia (much closer to downtown). Part of a local
chain, they are an authorized Leica dealer, so they should have new gear --
haven't been in to check out their used offerings lately. They should be
open Saturday, and perhaps Sunday as well.
	If you buy anything, be sure to bring proof of out-of-state residence so
you can avoid the 8.3% sales tax.
