Leica Raising Prices on M System and Accessories

We already posted Leica Camera AG's price increase in Europe on M cameras and lenses but here's the official U.S. price increase. For all sport optics products, the new pricing is in effect immediately. For photography equipment, the new pricing goes into effect on February 1, 2015. Food for thought; the Leica M (Type 240) is going up $950 USD (but don't forget the $750 USD discount currently in effect) - so essentially going up $200 USD.

Below is a list of the photography equipment which will increase in price on February 1, 2015.

(*) Note that Leica M (Type 240) price increase reflects the current $750 discount - so it's effectively only going up $200 after that expires at the same time.

Update (01/13/15):

Leica has extended the discount on the M and lenses until March 31, 2015! Additionally, they are offering $750 a new M Monochrom as well!
