Leica slashes prices on M240 cameras when bought with a lens
Leica UK has announced a promotion which could save you up to £1,170 on an M240-series camera if you also buy one of a wide selection of lenses. The cameras are the M, M-P and Monochrom.
Tier 1 lenses comprise the Tri-Elmar, 28mm Summicron, 75mm Apo-Summicron, 90mm Apo-Summicron, 135mm Apo-Telyt, 21, 24, 35 and 50mm Summiluxes and the Macro-Elmar 90mm f/4. A second tier of lenses comprises the 18mm and 21mm Super-Elmars, the 24mm Elmar, 28mm Elmarit and 35mm and 50mm Summicrons.
The biggest saving is £1,170 on an M240, in either black paint or silver chrome, together with a Tier 1 lens. Choose a Tier 2 lens and the discount falls to £770. On the M-P and a Tier 1 lens you can save £1,145 or £895 on a Tier 2 lens. The Monochrom is available at £1,100 off, or £800 off with a Tier 2 lens.
There is no time limit on the discounts but we can assume that they will be available while stocks last. This substantial discount could adversely effect prices of used cameras.
Following the introduction of the M10 last month it was stated clearly that the M240 would continue. But this promotion seems to indicate that stocks are being run down. Could this be the end of the corpulent M240 series?
