“Leica has just updated the CCD Corrosion Upgrade Program once again, eliminating discontinued models and adding additional camera options. The program started in 2015 as an alternative to sending an affected camera in for service. Recently, the price for a straight-up sensor replacement increased to $1,595.

You can read more about the two options and the history of the CCD corrosion issue in greater detail here: Price Increased on Leica CCD Sensor Replacement

The M Monochrom (Typ 246) and SL (Typ 601) have been dropped and are no longer available. Current models M10, M10-P and M10-D remain in the program and a few Leica CL options have been added. Unfortunately, the recently introduced Q2, SL2 and M10 Monochrom are not being offered as upgrade options at this time.

The good news is that the upgrade pricing doesn’t seem to have been impacted by the latest price increase. So, the relative value of moving up to an M10 or M10-P has actually improved.”
