SL Kit with SL 50mm f/1.4 or SL 24–90mm - £6950

Recommended Posts

Leica store UK are, as I type, currently offering the SL (Typ 601) Kit with Summilux-SL 50mm f/1.4 ASPH for £6950, tax included - link.

Using a price comparison site the cheapest I can buy the camera, 50mm f/1.4 lens and included cable release for separately in the UK is £8435. A similar story with the 24-90. Have I been living under a rock or is this deep discounting unusual?

Check the body only price on Red Dot..... currently cheaper than many of the second hand bodies he is selling...

 

Would suggest the SL2 announcement is imminent...

New SL for £3195, wow, at its price heyday new SL was close to 6 grand.  Sobering lesson in digital camera obsolescence.

Last month I part exchanged my SL for Z7.  It was bought S/H for £4000, 2 years later i got 2200 for it.

While I'd love to believe these prices are because the SL2 is imminent it may be no coincidence that the two lenses in the bundles match the recently released lenses from Panasonic for the S1/S1R: this may be a reaction to sales of the SL being hit hard by those two cameras. If I weren't a glass half full kind of guy I could even extend that line of thought to wonder if Leica is seriously considering whether it can recoup its costs if it does release an SL2 anytime soon! 😟

      We've all heard of that college student who bought an M2 for 5$ in a thift shop.
       
      I've never got such a deal but I've managed to get Leica equipment for low prices in the past. Such as a very clean M2 that I got in an eBay auction for 600$CAD.
      The shutter speed had to be adjusted, and the vulcanite had to be replaced. Other than that, it is in excellent condition.
       
      I later got an M262, which I also bought on eBay, for about 3500$CAD.
      The sensor was filled with dust and oil spots, and the focusing mechanism had to be lubricated two days after I recieved it. (Those problems where not specified by the seller)
      It looked like new back then, but after about six months of use, I've got some paint removed on the corners and a cut in the faux leather. It has been faithfull ever since.
       
      Then, yesterday, I looked for a replacement for my 35mm ZM 2.8 on the internet and ended up looking for pre-ASPH summicrons. I then stumbled uppon a 35mm Summicron on keh.com for 1080$USD. No picture of the actual lens was shown and generic pictures of a Type 4 where shown instead. It was listed as "UG" (ugly). Giving this extremely low price and the 180 day warranty offered by keh, I jumped on it. (I'll keep you guys updated on this purchase.)
       
       
      What are the good deals you guys managed to get on Leica equipment?
