Last chance to grab $1,500 off a Leica SL2 with lens – now you can finally own a Leica!

It's not often that Leicas are discounted, but this is an offer that's flown under the radar and is soon to be ending at the end of January!  The deal in question is a massive $1,500 off a Leica SL2 mirrorless camera with either Summicron prime lens or Vario zoom!

Every photographer – myself included – has wowed over a camera with that prestigious Red Dot at one point or another, heck I even own two! While still at this price point, this setup might be out of reach for most, with a grand and a half shaved off the price, a new Leica is now in the realm of affordability!

Two bundles are available with this deal: one with the Vario-Elmarit-SL 24-70mm f/2.8 Asph zoom lens, and one with the Summicron-SL 50mm f/2 Asph prime lens. Personally, I'd go for that nifty fifty, as I'm a big fan of prime lenses and also shoot with a 50mm as the focal length is a fantastic all-rounder that covers everything from street photography to portraiture (for what it's worth, I'd pick that limited-run silver body as well). The Leica 24-70mm Vario-Elmarit-SL is a more versatile choice, though, and either lens is going to serve you well.

With its 47MP sensor, 5K 30p video and 20fps burst shooting, the SL2 is a formidable body. The 24-70mm f/2.8 is a must-have professional-grade lens that goes from landscapes to light portraiture.

How it works

1) First you will have to log into your existing or register for a new Leica account – once in your account, you will see a link to download your vouchers. Note that only one voucher can be used per purchase.

2) Fill out the online form to request the voucher. Once submitted, you will be sent your unique voucher code via your Leica Account and to the email you used to set it up. Make sure to click "Activate your voucher" to show your discount code.

3) You will now have your voucher code and it can be redeemed at any participating Leica store in the US or via authorized dealers such as B&H and Adorama. Make sure to enter your unique voucher ID into the special instructions box in the shopping cart during checkout and, once applied, you will have $1,500 big ones towards your order.

As a luxury brand, Leica is more expensive than other camera systems on the market. That being the case, discounts really don't come along very often – so if you're interested in a highly covetable Leica SL2 (which earned 4½ stars in our review) this is a golden opportunity to pick one up at an unbeatable price.
