Increased Leica prices on some cameras and lenses came into effect at the beginning of April. Among rangefinder cameras, the the Monochrom (now £6,500), the MP, M7 (£3,900), the M-A (£3,800) have all gone up. The M10 remains at £5,850.
Most M lenses, with the exception of the recently introduced 75mm Noctilux, have risen in price. For example, the 35mm Summicron now costs £2,700 and the 35mm Summilux is £4,200. The 50mm Summicron is now £2,000 and the 50mm Apo-Summicron £6,500. The 50mm Noctilux now costs £9,100 in black and £9,300 in silver. Other silver lenses are slightly more expensive than the prices quoted above.
The SL range, both cameras and lenses, remain as before. However, the TL2 body goes up to £1,750 while there is no increase on the CL body. While most TL lenses are not increased, the 11-23mm rises to £1,500, the 18-56mm to £1,350. The 23mm rises to £1,500 while the 60mm Macro is now £2,100.
Leica’s popular Q goes up to £3,700 but compact cameras (D-Lux and V-Lux) escape these latest price rises.
