Leica offering a trade-up program for defective M9/M9-P/M-E cameras

Leica Camera official response on M9 sensor white spots corrosion issue
Leica officially announced a trade-up program for defective M9/M9-P/M-E cameras that have the white spots/corrosion issue I reported few weeks ago. Here are the details from Leica Store Miami:

A trade-up program was also mentioned, and now Leica has officially presented a trade-up offer allowing those with affected cameras to move up to either the Leica M (Typ 240) or the M-P (Typ 240). The details are as follows:

Step 1: If you believe that there are corrosion spots on your sensor, send your camera in to Leica Store Miami for evaluation.

Step 2: Leica Store Miami will then work with Leica Camera customer care in New Jersey to determine if the CCD does indeed show the corrosion spots.

Step 3: If it is determined that your sensor is defective, you will have the following trade-up options:

Step 4: Once your preferred trade-up option is decided upon and payment is made, Leica Store Miami will ship you the replacement camera. Please note that if no corrosion is identified on the sensor, the camera will be returned to you as it will not be eligible for the trade-up. While there is not a program in place for the Leica M Monochrom at this time, please contact Leica Store Miami if you have a Monochrom with an affected sensor.
