Shortage of Leica M9 sensors

Several readers have informed me that there is currently a shortage of M9 CCD sensors. Cameras sent in for sensor repairs were in some case replaced with brand new M9s as a result of this shortage. The 18MP sensor inside the M9 was initially produced by Kodak, but their sensor division was sold to Platinum Equity in November 2011.
