If you go on their website you will see that you can buy an R9 for $1717.44 on sale rather than their regular price of $1709!! Think I'll wait til the sale over. 4% wow...let's all line up early in the morning!!!
I have made good experiences in Hong Kong buying Leica equipment. And now, with the strong EUR, Leica lenses are again comparatively cheap there! I recommend to stop over in HK on your next Asia trip - just for checking different (official!) Leica dealers.
Planning to stop over in HK for a few days and pick up a few Leica M gears. Does anyone know roughly the retail prices of the following items in HK? I would like to find out how much more expensive they are in the UK.
a)M7 TTL body only (black, either 0.72 or 0.85),
b)M6 TTL body only, if this is still available(black, either 0.72 or 0.85),
c)M lenses 28mm f2 Summicron M,
d)M lenses 50mm f 2.8 Elmarit M (collapsable),
e)M lenses 50mm f 2 Summicron M, and
f)M lenses 90mm f2.8 Elmarit M.
