Mail-in rebates, promoting lenses for Leica M rangefinder cameras, give you between 7-20% discount, depending on list price.
Leica is offering rebates of $200 to $500 on lenses for its legendary M-series rangefinder cameras. The amount of the rebate any given lens is eligible for is based on the Manufacturer's Suggested Price, so a lens that costs $1,000-$2,999 is eligible for a $200 rebate, while a lens that's listed at $5,000 or higher will get you a $500 rebate, and so on. The Leica 24mm f/2.8 Elmarit-M lens shown at right would be eligible for a $300 rebate, for instance. The rebate program ends August 14.
