Leica SL $1500 Price Reduction. USA model.
There are a few Leica SL bodies left at the Leica Store San Francisco and they are listed on Amazon at $4495 each. This is via Amazon Prime and from a Leica store, so 100% USA models. B&H has it listed at $5995.
Save $1500 and get a USA model with USA warranty with free prime shipping (if you are a prime member of course). Love this camera, one of my all time faves even today in August of 2019. THIS IS A STEAL for the SL. I would take an SL at $4500 over a new Panasonic S1 at $2500. I own both and have gravitated back to the SL AGAIN, as I always do. The SL is a camera that is destined to become a classic. One camera that kills “upgradeitis”.
The SL ROCKS!! I will check out this Sigma lens, sounds impressive!
This is my next camera! But I’ll wait and purchase a lovingly pre-owned body.
I just paired my SL with the new Sigma L-mount 45mm f2.8 lens. OMG! This lens seems every bit as good as any of the Leica Summicron L lenses. Very sharp wide open and when stopped down to f5.6 sharp from edge to edge. At $550 this all metal lens with aperture ring is a worthy companion to the SL. At $5K for the pair it’s not “cheap” but I assure you if you can afford the SL, this lens will justify the purchase.
This new 45mm Sigma lens would indeed be a very important reason to get the SL!
