I'd be VERY leary of buying any Leica DEMO labeled product.  Several 
years ago I bought an R8 when it was new as a had tons of 
problems and went back to leica 3 or 4 times at least...anyway finally 
they told me the camera was one someone had returned, been refurbed and 
then sold as a DEMO...I asked about this saying that I thought DEMO 
meant the camera had been used to demo the I was told it 
can also mean one that was returned with problems and then fixed and 
resold.   This was told to me by a person, some lady whose name I 
forget, in the Leica head offices in NJ...if you are really adventurous 
you can do a search in the archives for my post from those days sometime 
in the late 90's.
