Digital Leica M8 / M8.2 / M9 / M-E /Mono / M10 aka "M" Discussions about the Leica M8 /M 8.2 / M9 / M9-P/ M-E / M Monochrom / M10 aka "M": Leica digital M mount rangefinder cameras. Naming the new digital M the "Leica M" is VERY unfortunate as it will only confuse newbies with other Leica M cameras of the the past. Happily there is room for confusion with only the past 59 years of Leica M production ... since Leica introduced the Leica M system in 1953. All Hail for the Leica Marketing Department learning Leica M history!

M9-P Black Paint Discontinued

Wow, wasn't expecting that so quick. Thought Leica was going to discontinue the M9 first, then the M9-P. Was hoping to save up enough for the Black Paint M9-P before they all disappeared, but no such luck.

According to B&H Photo, the Leica M9-P Black Paint has been discontinued.

Just a few snaps

Well they ceased producedion a couple months ago (so I guess that's technically discontinued), but there are plenty black M9Ps out there at authorized dealers...

In Leica terms, yes. For those that ordered early hopefully from February-March, for the rest of the world maybe in October.

If the M-E was painted black, there might not have been such a rush to grab a black M9 or M9-P before they were all gone. If Leica intended to clear the M9 and M9-P stocks ASAP they succeeded.
Now they face an income gap, with just a trickle of M-E sales, until the M-240s start shipping.
