Leica Super Elmar M 21mm f/3.4 ASPH lens now shipping in the US

Pin It

After it was initially delayed for some design changes, the new Super Elmar M 21mm f/3.4 ASPH lens is now finally shipping in the US. The above picture was taken in my local Leica dealer who also had the 28mm Summicron-M f/2 ASPH in stock. My other local dealer currently has the Leica Elmarit-M 28mm f/2.8 ASPH in stock. Every other Leica M lens is pretty much out of stock everywhere, maybe because of the upcoming price increase.

Amazon currently has one 21mm/f/3.4 in stock for a $500 premium.

    Well, I have a Super Elmar M 21mm f/3.4 ASPH mounted on my M9P, and a picture of the lens on my web site, http://alltombild.se. It was delivered to me by Robert White in the UK early this week.

    I bought mine on Wednesday from B&H Photo. I was lucky to get it. :)

    I find it interesting this particular lens has not yet been sold. Perhaps no one wants to reward “Murphy’s Camera” for price gouging.

      I don’t understand your comment.

        The $500 premium. Ripoff.

          OK! Sorry, missed that. Actually there are two dealers in Sweden now that have the Super-Elmarit in stock. The price here is approx 2,650 US dollars, ex Swedish VAT, or approx 3,310 dollars VAT included. The UK price (pounds sterling) was the same when I bought it from Robert White in the UK. Leica only makes around 70 lenses per day and all off them are on back order all over the world. But eventually they show up, so why pay extra just to have them first. I agree about that. I wonder though for how long they have to wait in China? That’s Leicas biggest market today.
