I think this is one reason Leica has introduced the certifed preowned camera
program; gets used cameras into the market with warranties included. I think
it is very helpful. I think an ad campaign pushing used gear would also be
helpful. Very unorthodox, but helpful.

I "sold" a friend on the SL2 this year.  How?  He saw my website, and asked
about the camera.  His purchase of used equipment doesn't do much for Leica
the company yet but in the long run I think it will.
