Subject: [Leica] Leica CL w/ 40/2 & 90/4 FS

I'd like to sell my Leica CL outfit.  Details:

What's included: Leitz Minolta CL, Leitz 40mm Summicron-C w/ shade and front 
cap, Leitz 90mm Elmar-C w/shade and front cap, leather  case for body + 40mm 
lens.  For a buyer from this list I will include two Leitz Series 5.5 
filters (one UVa, one SL).

Details/condition: The camera and both lenses were purchased from Sherry 
Krauter three years ago this spring and all had been freshly cleaned, 
lubricated and adjusted.  All function perfectly, mechanically and 
optically.  The lenses look basically like new outside, have clean optics, 
sharp detents, smooth focusing and oil-free diaphragm blades.  The camera 
meter has had a new CdS cell installed and calibrated with a 1.5v battery, 
so no adapters are required.  The viewfinder is crystal clear and the 
rangefinder is correctly adjusted.  Although Wetzlar-philes may be 
disappointed to see "Minolta" on the camera, I took this over another that 
did not have the Minolta name on Ms. Krauter's recommendation because of its 
later production date (so that it has more of the in-production engineering 
upgrades).   The camaera top plate shows one or two very, very small pecks 
that keep it from being truly "mint" or "like new" but it would easily pass 
the stringent KEH EX+ grade.

Terms: I'm looking for $US 1250 shipped/insured to the lower 48 for the 
whole kit or best offer.  I'll ship overseas if appropriate arrangements can 
be made.  Photos are below; first link is to the photobucket album, and 
subsequent links are to individual pictures.  Three day inspection from date 
of receipt; return of purchase price less shipping costs both ways if items 
are received in the same condition shipped.

Please reply off-list if interested - 

John Newell
