Leica Lens Price Increases

Leica just six months ago (on January 1, 2014) increased lens prices for many M lenses, but there's a new round of increases coming. This time for mostly S-System lenses, though one M lens and a couple of binoculars are also affected. The increase is effective July 1, 2014 - and dealers will honor the current prices until the end of the day on June 30, 2014 provided the items are currently in stock or available for immediate delivery by Leica Camera. If you pre-order the item before then, the price will be honored regardless of how long it takes to fulfill the order.

Here are the details:
