The problem is one of linguistics.

As far as I know Leica has nothing to do with sensors. They don't design them, nor do they manufacture them. Leica outsources it's sensors.

Since Leica knows how many M9s were purchased, and they know how many were sent in for repair, what makes you suspect they don't "have all the figures"?
