Leica Sale – 12% Off For U.S. Customers
Leica USA has announced a 12% savings on virtually everything they sell. The sale runs from May 1, 2015 to May 31, 2015 and excludes the new Leica Monochrom (Typ 246), the Leica M-P Correspondent, the Leica M-P 240 “Safari”, as well as the 50mm f/1.4 ASPH black chrome finish and the 35mm f/2 ASPH black chrome finish lenses.
Check prices on the gear you’re after online:
This one is puzzling. I’m all for saving money but the perpetually extended rebates and new sales seems to indicate that Leica sees its gear as overpriced. Why not just lower the prices across the board? This being said, if you’re in the market for an M 240, this 12% Leica sale saves you $870 USD compared to last month’s rebate of $750 on the same gear. You can use that extra $120 to (almost) buy an extra battery!
