The Leica CCD Sensor Corrosion Upgrade Program will also get more expensive on April 1st



In addition to the upcoming Leica price increase, Reddotforum reports that the CCD Sensor Corrosion Upgrade Program will also get more expensive on April 1st:

“Just as we reported last year, corroded M9 sensors can no longer be replaced, but M9 owners can still take advantage of special pricing to upgrade to an M, Q, SL or CL model in the current lineup. And while the pricing is not quite as attractive as it was this past year, there are still some solid options for those with older cameras looking to make a change. Interestingly, the SL2-S and Q2 Monochrom haven’t been added to the available upgrade choices. Perhaps we’ll see these added in the future.” (Reddotforum)
