Now itâ€™s Leicaâ€™s turn to offer substantial rebates on its products, in the wake of Canonâ€™s just announced rebates.
Leica is offering a $500 off its R9 and Digital Module R, a high-end digital back designed to fit regular production LEICA R8 and R9 cameras.
The R9 is a high-end manual focus 35mm SLR that uses the standard Leica R bayonet mount. However, it can be converted to a digital camera by changing to the Leica Digital Module R back.
Leica said â€œbecause the two cameras are already designed to function with digital solutions, the new digital back will communicate with the camera’s controls, thus integrating seamlessly with the uncomplicated operation of the camera.â€
The Leica Digital Module R is priced at $5,950.
