Press release:

We would like to inform you about a change in pricing of the replacement program for corroded sensors that affected some M9, M9-P, M Monochrom and M-E camera models.

Until further notice, we will continue to offer free replacement of affected sensors for the camera models stated above that were purchased as new products within the past five years.

For all camera models listed that were purchased over five years ago, we offer our customers the following program: from 12/1/2018 onward, the customer pays a contribution amounting to $1,595 plus tax and shipping for the replacement of the affected CCD sensor.

In addition to this, the program also includes a free general overhaul* of your Leica M camera and a one-year warranty with the same terms as for new products. This offer expresses our commitment to conserving the long-term usability of Leica cameras.

Our upgrade program will continue to be offered as an alternative option. Instead of a sensor replacement, we offer our customers the alternative of sending us their camera affected by sensor corrosion as partial payment toward the purchase of selected Leica M-Camera models of the Typ 240 generation and the M10 at even more attractive terms.

With regard to the above, we would like to remind you that the replacement of CCD sensors and the upgrade offers apply only to cameras confirmed to be affected by this specific problem, and only to the models of the Leica M-System we have listed. Preventive replacement of sensors is not included in this program.

The general overhaul of the Leica M-camera includes the following items:

  • Cleaning and overhaul of the shutter cocking mechanisms
  • Cleaning and maintenance/repair of the multifunction wheel
  • Cleaning of the main switch and shutter speed dial
  • Adjustment of the baseplate locking system
  • Refurbishing of engravings
  • Renewal of the protective film on the baseplate
  • Maintenance/repair of viewfinder displays
