someone please talk me out of doing this!

My Leicaflex SL2 bodies are not getting any play time.  Sitting on the shelf 
is BORING and will give them arthritis...  but I don't see myself using much 
film any more.

Here's what I've got:

a) Leicaflex SL2, silver chrome, CLA'd about 3 years ago by Leica USA with 
meter re-calibrated for 1.5-volt silver-oxide battery.  Also has SL-type 
microprism viewscreen (no split-image thingie).  Has minor crapes and rub 
marks, no significant dings.  Not a shelf queen, a splendid user.

b) Leicaflex SL2, black chrome, CLA'd last year by DAG.  Also has 
re-calibrated meter and SL-type viewscreen.  As with the silver chrome body, 
it has minor wear and rub marks.  A great user.

Neither camera's meter needle illumination lamp is working, but this might 
be a battery issue.  The SL2 meets the old Leitz standard for toughness.  
US$700 for either body plus shipping.  Or talk me out of this.
