Leica M ($750) and Lenses ($250) Off in US/CA

The Leica M (Type 240) is now $750 off and many M lenses $250 off in the U.S.A. and Canada! Adorama has the prices posted for the M in silver and black, B&H in silver and black and Leica Store Miami in silver and black. The special runs from November 15, 2014 through January 31, 2015! Expect more to follow suit.

Besides the M, many M lenses will also see a $250 discount! At Leica Store Miami explains:

Beginning Saturday, November 15, 2014 and running through January 31, 2015, Leica Camera is offering a $750 instant voucher towards the purchase of a brand new Leica M (Typ 240) in black or silver chrome, and a $250 instant voucher towards the purchase of nearly any brand new M-System lens, with the exception of the newly announced f/2.4 Summarits, Summilux-M 35mm f/1.4 ASPH in Silver Chrome, Noctilux-M 50mm f/0.95 ASPH in Silver Chrome, and the APO-Summicron-M 50mm f/2 ASPH.

This is rather strange on the face of it, as just recently (over the summer) - Leica announced price increases on both lenses and the M (Type 240) camera. We do know the M is up for a refresh next year, and with the new (and more expensive M-P) - this could partially be "an adjustment." While that doesn't explain the lenses - the very strong Dollar-Euro exchange rate currently is likely the biggest reason for both.
