Have you had experience buying 2nd hand from local shops or other overseas shops ?
If you have answered "Yes", then I think you'd know the answer.
If you are not sure, then I would suggest you pause and take stock, the additional 1k or 2k that Leica charges
makes it worthwhile if you are new to Leica, new to Rangefinder Photography.
Sure anyone can buy cheap from europe over the net, are you prepared to handle the issues if the camera isn't
as described or if it has issues within the first 24 hours ?
Having said this, I bought a m9p new from a seller who bought 2 from UK. No issues but I was prepared for the risks
involved. I have had beginner's luck as well as outrite cheated on expensive items over the net, it was painful to recover
the monies involved.
