Leica Prices Increasing on May 1st!

 

On May 1, 2018 Leica is increasing prices on a wide range of products by an average of about 5%. Affected products include most M bodies (film and digital), nearly all M lenses, the black Q, TL2, S (Typ 007), many S lenses and a few other items (66 in total). To quote Leica “this revision is necessary due to the current exchange rates and the increase in raw materials and production costs.” This does make sense, as every year about this time we tend to see some increases, designed to reflect the ever-rising costs involved with manufacturing hand-built products from exotic, expensive materials.
 
There are no increases within the SL-system, and recently announced products such as the Thambar-M 90mm, Noctilux-M 75mm, and CL are not affected. If you were thinking about the M10, best to grab one before months’ end as the price is going up $400. The black Q sees an increase of $245 (making it the same price as the silver Q) and TL2 bodies go up $245 as well. If you have any questions feel free to call or stop by the store and we will be more than happy to help.

Now in stock! The Leica Noctilux-M 75mm f/1.25 * UPDATE** (SOLD)

*UPDATE* 03.29.18 (SOLD) If you are interested in purchasing please call or stop by the store and we can help you out!

 

This latest lens adds to the legacy of the Noctilux family, which was started by the introduction of the Leica Noctilux 50mm f/1.2 at Photokina back in 1966.

“All Noctilux-M lenses to this day are special for their rendering and aesthetic when shot wide-open, yielding a three-dimensional ‘pop’ that separates its subjects from the background like no other lenses,” Leica says. “The out-of-focus areas behind the subject is smooth and pleasing to the eye, giving a lovely soft background even in the darkest of lighting scenarios.”

 

The Noctilux-M 75mm f/1.25 ASPH features an even shallower depth of field than the modern Noctilux-M 50mm f/0.95 APSH. It has a close focusing distance of 0.85mm (~2.8 feet) and a reproduction ratio of 0.85mm.

Inside the lens is an 11-blade aperture that produces a pleasing bokeh in out of focus areas of photos.

 

On the front of the Noctilux-M 75mm f/1.25 is an integrated lens hood that can be extended or retracted by simply twisting the lens. There’s also a tripod adapter for mounting the lens onto a tripod.
