Leica M9 CCD sensors have been discontinued, defective sensors can no longer be replaced


Leica officially reported that M9 CCD sensors have been discontinued and are no longer in production. As a result, defective sensors from the corrosion issue can no longer be replaced. Here is the full text:

The production of the CCD sensors for the Leica M9 models has been discontinued. Therefore, subsequent deliveries are no longer possible and defective sensors cannot be replaced. Until further notice, all other repairs on the M9 model generation can still be carried out.

In place of the sensor exchange we are offering new attractive conditions to our customers to trade in their camera with a defective sensor and purchase a current Leica camera model.
