Subject: [Leica] Used SL or SL2
Date: Thu, 29 Mar 2001 15:13:12 EST


In your situation, I would recommend that you get the R6.2 or another Leica R 
camera.  You cannot use ROM lenses with the SL or SL2 because the ROM 
contacts would be damaged by those camera bodies.  I have two SLs (one chrome 
and one black) and one SL2 MOT, and they are magnificently built all manual 
and mechanical cameras.  With periodic CLAs, they should last a 100 years!  I 
also have a R8 and a grand total of 7 Leica R lenses!  I bought the R8 
because of its meter and TTL flash capability.  All the lenses are non-ROM 
and 3-cam, so I can use them on any of my Leica SLR bodies.  I have 
deliberately bought only used 3-cam lenses in mint condition. I originally 
started with a SL and a 60mm/f2.8 macro lens.  Be warned though, you are 
already infected with the Leica Virus!  Once you see the amazing quality of 
the Leica R lenses in your projected slides, nothing else will satisfy you!
