It looks like Leica cameras are seeing another price increase. After already raising the prices earlier this year, some Leica gear has now become even more expensive.
Both of these cameras were already made more expensive in April when Leica increased prices by 2-5%. The Q2 went from $4,995 to $5,495, and the SL2 went from $5,995 to $6,595. For comparison, when it was launched, the Q2 was retailed at $4,995, and the SL2’s price was $5,995.
Unlike the previous price increase, Leica hasn’t officially announced this one. I checked the prices of several other lenses and cameras, but I didn’t notice the increase. Still, I couldn’t check all of it so it’s possible that other gear has seen a price increase, too. We’re waiting for an announcement from Leica and if you notice another increase in the meantime, let us know.
