Story to Share regarding 50'cron deal... : LUSENET : Leica Photography : One Thread

Since my girlfriend doesn't care, I thought I would share my excitement with my Leica friends:

I went to my local Leica dealer looking to trade my seldom used 28-70 Vario for a new 50'cron. The swap was still going to cost me a little cash out of pocket. At the last minute, I asked him if he had a late model 'cron used. He walked to the window, poked around and returned with a late model. The condition was virtually brand new, but he did not have the leather pouch or packaging. I compared the serial numbers...and to my delight...the used was thousands new than the 'new' one I almost bought.

I walked away with a dead even trade. :-) *big smile*

Dead even trade? Its when you return to the shop the next day and look at the price they charge for your beloved lens... Whats that?? Thats double the price they gave you!? ;)
