FS: Leica 11269 APO-Extender-R ROM s/n 38736xx with case, caps, box in 
excellent+ condition.  The extender shows very little signs of use and works 
perfectly.  Will not work on Leicaflex, Leicaflex SL or Leicaflex SL2 
bodies.  $575 plus shipping OBO

FS: Leitz 60mm Macro-Elmarit-R, E60 / Series VIII filter size with caps 
#28526xx.  This is a 3-cam lens with significant finish wear.  Aperture is 
clean and works smoothly, focus is smooth, glass has some external dust but 
is free of scratches, fungus or other such problems.  $325 plus shipping OBO

FS: R8/DMR used primarily as backup equipment.  I am very reluctant to sell 
this but in order to allow my hand injuries to heal I need to either use 
lighter weight equipment, or not pick up the camera.  Not picking up a 
camera doesn't appeal to me, and I must raise cash to purchase lighter 
weight equipment.

This is USER equipment, not pristine collector's stuff.  DMR works well, 
includes charger with US 110v plug, 2 battery packs rebuilt by Michael Bass, 
box, and universal focussing screen with DMR crop marks.  Also includes a 
mostly-functional R8.  This camera has a nick on one shutter blade which 
does not enter the DMR's sensor space, and a bad spot meter.  Since the spot 
meter is integrated into the other metering modes all metering modes are 
affected, but I have found that with exposure compensation turned down to 
-2.5 and in full-field metering mode exposures are accurate with manual 
metering if the exposure is set to underexpose 1 stop according to the 
meter.  Auto-exposure modes will not yield correct exposure.  Essentially 
since this is a costly repair the R8 is included with the DMR for free.  
$1900 plus shipping OBO.

FS: Leica STA-1 tripod collar for 100mm APO-Macro-Elmarit-R and 180mm 
APO-Elmarit-R, also fits 80-200 f/4 Vario-Elmar-R with slight modification.  
Includes box.  $175 plus shipping OBO.

Paypal OK.
