I should report that Leica's estimate was very fair in my case. They estimated eight months. I got my M9 back in 6 and 1/2 months.

OK now I see. We used to do it that way with telephoto lenses on Mitchell cameras when I worked in Nevada. There was no focusing mount, just shims. We put in a shim, shot a couple of feet of film,...

I wish I knew what this wants to say.



Sure, but you probably wouldn't use live view for street shooting. That's what the viewfinder is for.

So points 1 and 2 make the M240 a better workhorse for high volume, or rapid shooting, then, while the M9 is OK for less intense, more casual or leisurely shooting. I haven't run up against these...

Raid, what do you feel are the "challenges" of the M9? And what will you have to give up after returning the M240?

It would seem reasonable to get it fixed and then decide whether to keep it or sell it. Leica supposedly goes over the whole camera and makes it like new again. You could use it for a while and...

I believe the new sensor came out in mid-2015. So I'd think that any M9 accompanied by paper work dated from that date forward could be assumed to have the new sensor. It's probably even safer to...

Great! That is good news! If they send mine back in three months from when it was sent to them, I'll have it in 10 days or 2 weeks! (Not holding breath.) :)

Update: As of November 3, no M9 yet....

Yay!

I got a call this morning from Stephanie at Schiller's. My M9 will get a replacement sensor, without going to Germany. The work will be done in N.J., according to what Leica told her. No idea when...

Great news! I sent mine on July 22, so maybe I will get it back by October or November! Hopefully with a new sensor.

Maybe this is why my charger for M9 batteries has an indicator for "80% charged?"

Cal,
Are you Aware of any concerns with overcharging M9 batteries? I believe it is ok to leave lithium batteries on charge. Instructions for some say you can leave them on or top them off all you...

I dropped mine off at Schiller's one month later than Ellen and Raid sent theirs. So it looks like I'm into January. I guess I will have it by Groundhog day, or so. Hope it's a nice day.

So it looks like it took about 70 days for Ellen to receive word that her sensor would be replaced. I sent mine in (through Schiller's) about 35 days ago. So maybe I will know something in another...

That is what I was told at Schiller's when I dropped mine off. I'm guessing that maybe they make the initial determination at Allendale as to whether a sensor replacement is needed, or if only a...

I had Schiller's send my M9 3 weeks ago. Haven't heard if it needs a sensor yet. How long does that take?

Raid: I don't know if I'm getting all that. It might depend on whether they decide the sensor needs replacement. If not, I imagine they might just do a sensor cleaning in NJ and send it back.

Ellen: I don't know for sure about the shipping this time--I didn't ask. But in the past when Schiller's sent my cameras for repairs or checkup, the shipping cost was quite nominal.

I'm getting close to thinking I should just send it, like Raid is doing. Are we supposed to call first, for a return authorization?

I don't know whether to hope my M9 sensor lasts forever, or craps out before August.
