Subject: [Leica] What's the shortest record for Leica Sellers Regret?

I regretted selling my Zeiss Ikon SL706 with an Opton standard lens.

The camera was built like a tank and the lens was superb. The money was 
more important at the time

Missed my Rollei SL2000F terribly but made up for it when I recently 
found a 3003 in great condition.

Swapped my M2, a 3.5/35mm and a 2/90 mm lens for a chrome SL with three 
lenses and haven't missed it at all.

Still have my Retina IIa and a couple of others, plus accessories and 
W/A Tele lenses. Lovely to play with but a horor to use.
