Leica M 240 Price Increase
The U.S. Leica M 240 Price increase comes on the heels of a similar increase for the EU market and starting February 1, 2015, the price of the Leica M 240 will go up by $200 to $7,450! The current $750 discount on the M 240 is calculated on the old $7,250 price and is valid till the end of January, 2015.
Many U.S. retailers are reporting the Leica M 240 as out of stock but you can check availability at your favorite retailer:
The current $250 Leica lens rebate is also available until the end of January.
Update 01-11-14: LeicaRumors is now reporting that the Leica M 240 price increase has been cancelled and the price will return to it’s normal price of $7250 once the current $750 rebate expires at the end of January, 2015. From my perspective the current rebate puts the M 240 price about where it should have been all along so we’ll have to see what Leica does in the long run.
