I suppose this was already mentioned at the Leica User forum, but I don't read/post there. Anyone?
Ah, interesting, that implies having owners volunteer the donation of their M8 for spare parts? If that's true, I should be expecting an email from Solms in due time presenting me with the option of "upgrading" to a M9, as I did have a functional LCD going into the repair process.
