View Full Version : How long does it take to have Leica deliver UR/IR filters?

Hello All,

It has been two(2) weeks that I have registered and ordered two(2) UV/IR filters on-line and I am still waiting for them to show up.

I live in California, USA and wondering how long it took for others to get their UR/IR filters from Leica.

I ordered pretty standard sizes - E39/E46...

Thank you.

You should have them by now or fair to expect them to show this week. Mine were here in 2 weeks.

I have the same experience. Took about 10 days.

[QUOTE=xthunder;783807]Hello All,

Got mine via in about 2 weeks. You should have yours in a day or two I'd say.

I hope that I get them sometime this week.

Thank you for the info.

I live in Saratoga Springs, NY - I ordered my 2 Leica filters (39 & 46 black) on Feb 19th and received them on March 14th - about 3 1/2 weeks.

it took about 10 days for mine to arrive, which was actually faster than i expected.

I received them in approximately 1 week. No word on the concurrent warranty registration however.

Sadly, I have never gotten mine directly from Leica. The dealer gave me one (a 46mm) and the other 43mm I requested never arrived. I got M8 last August.

I have registered on-line on 3/12 but still waiting for them....

Hopefully, I get them soon.

I do not know if there is a way to find out the status of the shipment...

I have received mine(2*E43 Silver) today!

Registered on 3/12 -> received on 3/28

I almost thought that they forgot about me~

From Arizona, it took about 21-days (silver-E46 & black-E55)

I am in Malaysia and got my E39 and E55 filters in 3 weeks.

The only sore point was that I had to pay tax on the filters which were supposed to have been bundled with the camera. Cameras are sold tax free here but accessories are not. Strange but true. It would have helped if Leica had declared the filters as free on the customs form.

Without meaning to hijeck this thread, I wonder if someone could illuminate a question regarding the 43mm UV/IR filters:

Are they the slim design that allows use of the hood for the LHSA 50 Summilux ASPH? This requires a filter with a slightly smaller diameter.

Mine took about 3 weeks. Suggest you send them an email asking for status. I did and got a quick response (less than 24 hours): the filters arrived exactly 2 days after the shipping date they indicated.
