Leica Discounts Gear by 12%

Which if any Leica lenses and cameras to buy? Answer that question in my Guide to Leica.

Leica Camera is pleased to announce a consumer promotion to compensate for the current strength of the US Dollar against the Euro. This promotion runs from May 1st, 2015 through May 31st, 2015.

Just in time to devalue all my Leica gear (thank you Leica)—Leica has a 12% off promotion through May 31st. Which is to be doubled in June!

Just kidding (well I give it a 50/50 chance), but it used to be that I could sell M lenses for more than I paid for them, such was the shortage. But what I hear is that Leica dumped a sh*tload of inventory over in China a bit ago, but that went out of style as gifts (financially speaking) and there is a good year or so of inventory overhanging the Leica market, now being sold gray market all over the place. Serves ’em right for shorting the US market for so many years and catering to the dilettante market. And now with the strong dollar, the pressure on Leica prices is tremendous. Be that as it may (more than speculation, less than proven fact), 12% off for a USA-warranty Leica lens is a heck of a lot better than full fare.

See my Leica gear pages with handy links for Leica gear and all the Leica M lenses.

On Leica gear through May 31

But what really is the best lens for the Leica M platform anyway?

Now all Leica has to do is actually make a competitive camera, or at least honor the absurd investment M240 users (including me) made in a platform that goes nowhere on feature improvements. I do like shooting the M240. But there’s no excuse for laziness, which is the most apt way to put the Leica non-initiative in making the M240 more useful—all while more and more jackass models are dumped onto the market.
