Leica R8 with Power Winder

700.00

Some how I ended up with two Leica R8's. This is one of the most amazing SLRs ever manufactured. I am selling the body and the winder. I have the original boxes and paperwork for both items. This is in near mint condition all though the rechargeable battery only charges to about 75%. The lens is not a part of the package. 

Add To Cart

Industrial designer Manfred Meinzer was chiefly responsible for the R8 design, along with a team of designers largely new to Leica or drawn from outside. The R8 was intended as a clean break from the previous generation of Leica R cameras, which had been developed in cooperation with Minolta. A key design goal was to evoke the Leica M and its smooth top plate; instead of a raised pentaprism as in previous R series cameras, the R8 has sloped "shoulders" that blend almost seamlessly into the pentaprism housing. The shape is strongly asymmetrical, especially in plan view, with a bulged right handgrip and smaller, tapered left-hand side.
