Four Great Leica Cameras That Are Affordable

It’s not often you associate Leica cameras with being affordable, but if you do some digging, you can find some very attractive options.

For a long time, I always wanted to have a Leica camera in my collection. I was drawn to the craftsmanship and the immaculate reputation they carried around the globe. I also loved that unmistakable red circle that denoted Leicas. In truth, it was more a status symbol and ego than anything else, but as I got older and saw more and more celebrities waving Leicas around in their hands, I went off them a little. I also amassed student loans and traveled as a backpacker for many years, which kind of put the idea of Leicas well and truly out of my mind.

These days, however, you can pick up some Leica cameras for very reasonable prices. And that brings us to this great video by Kai Wong, in which he introduces four affordable Leicas. To be sure, these are not new models like the Leica M11 Rangefinder, which goes for a tad under $9,000. They are older models, but like anything that’s built well, old doesn’t mean bad. A good example here is the Leica M8 Rangefinder, which you can find on eBay for under $2,000. These models have their own quirks, most definitely, but if you’ve ever wanted to become the proud owner of a Leica, then give this video a look and prepare to be pleasantly surprised.
