Leica SL is $600 off at B&H Photo!
After writing todays post on the new Panasonic S1 I was browsing the Leica SL at B&H photo and low and behold, a $600 instant coupon! The SL is not cheap at $5995 (was originally $7495) but now with $600 off it is STILL not cheap! But hey, $600 is $600 and this brings the SL to $5395 and in the case of the SL I do feel you get what you pay for. Yes it is $2900 more than a new Panasonic S1 which has a newer sensor, even better EVF, 5 Axis IS and uses the same mount but it’s not all about that when it comes to taking beautiful photos.
Why would anyone want an SL TODAY? Well, I would take a current SL over the S1, so for those who are nuts like me, now is the time to get the SL it seems ; ) Also, and SL2 is surely on the way soon, but expect a much bigger price than $5395 and an all new design.
The SL still rocks and is still one of the best made and feeling cameras I have ever touched. It is also so so cool to use with M mount lenses. My full review is HERE. Follow ups are HERE, HERE and HERE. Oh wait, also HERE, HERE and HERE ; )
