Special on M-E and Summarit-M 50mm f/2.5 Kits

To celebrate 100 years of Leica photography, Leica Italy is offering a tremendous opportunity to enter the world of Leica rangefinder photography. You can buy a Leica M-E complete with a Summarit-M 50mm f/2.5 lens at the special price of €4.995,- ($6,900 USD instead of the regular price of €6.330,- or $7,200 USD). The offer is limited to 100 kits, and subject to availability. You can reserve your kit today at the Leica Stores, Boutiques, and official Leica dealers within Italy.

Update (4/10/14): Leica Italy contacted us to say that this offer isn't an official/global special; it is within Italy and amongst Italian stores, boutiques and dealers only. We've updated the above information to reflect this, and put back the original Euro prices, rather than just the converted USD amounts we originally posted.

Update (4/11/14): We've also just confirmed that it's for Italian citizens only rather than global, or even EU. Maybe Leica Camera will extend this (rather!) popular offer? <hint hint>
