Leica Lens Price Increase Looming

Coming up soon, on January 1, 2014 - the price on many Leica M (and two S) lenses will increase. This is practically an annual occurrence and shouldn't really come as a surprise. Price increases range from $55 to an eye watering $500. On the bright side, the lenses you already own have just gained value... The full list of lenses and prices:
