Amazing Deal on a new Leica SL! $4250 and five in stock AMAZON PRIME.
You all know I love the Leica SL. Even today it is a superior camera to most mirrorless out there when it comes to build, beauty, simplicity and even IQ. The colors and depth that comes from this sensor is beautiful and the way I shoot the SL is with small M mount lenses. Yep, the Panasonic S1 is out and I own one but the SL, believe it or not, still gets use from me as I find the IQ different from the S1 especially in the color dept (I prefer the SL colors).
The SL started out at $7500k when it was launched. Then it was recently reduced to $5995 but with some searching I was able to find five in stock at Amazon for $4253.09. Odd price number and I would normally be skeptical but these are listed with Amazon prime, and I have ordered from this seller before.
I have never seen the SL brand new for less money than this. Used, yes. New, no. So if you have still been thinking of the SL, this is as good as it gets for a brand new in box camera. B&H Photo still has them listed for $5995.

Will there be an SL2 soon? Maybe. Probably. Yes, I think so. Soon.
But will it lose the charm, simplicity, and design of the original? My guess is yes. My guess is that it may also jump to 47MP and that Leica may kill off the 24MP version. I also feel the new one will cost much more, possibly back to the $7500 of the original release price. The original still works as well today as it did at launch and the SL is still a very serious camera with amazing image quality. Some of my fave images that I have captured over the last 20 years have been with the SL.
For me, the Leica SL is the only Leica camera that makes sense to ME. It has a built in EVF. Has 2 card slots. Bigger battery capacity. Yes it’s bigger and bulkier than any of the M’s and for the reasons listed here I like it better than the M’s. But love the look, feel and the aesthetic of the M’s. And the price point keeps getting better….especially on the pre-owned market.
The SL still has charm and is an amazing camera, even today. I see them now at $4495 NEW/USA from Leica Store San Francisco on Amazon: https://amzn.to/2TkbqQn
Good deal on a new SL!
I’d rather get from an actual Leica store. They are $4500 right now at any LEGIT Leica dealer.
Leica doesn’t sell to Amazon.
Any rumors or knowledge of when the sl 50mm summicron is coming out Steve? I have the 50 lux but it’s a bit large and heavy. Wicked lens though.
Still too rich for me. Went with your prior suggestion and am using S1 with Lux 50 and elmarit 21 as well as the kit thingy. I know that the SL is probably nicer, but for now, this will do. P1071140.jpg
