Now here is a sign of the times and a sad commentary at that. I have just learned that my local large photographic dealer, no longer takes trades! Over the years (30) I have purchased various Leica and Contax bodies,lenses,etc.from them and am recognised. They are "virtually" out of the film camera business but will bring in equipment if I pay for it first!. I somewhat humourously offered to trade in my Leica M6(Panda) and numerous lenses for a Canon 1Ds11 and lenses.Total refusal. Suggested selling on consignment(have done before).No deal. I was blown away with this news and don't expect to shop there again as I'm not into digital. I was looking for a Metz 45CL flash which they said could be brought in, if I paid upfront.Is anyone else experiencing this attitude and business practice?
