Glad to hear they adjusted the rangefinder.

I agree that Test Certificate unfortunately gives you no assurance that the sensor was replaced :(

Why can't Leica be more clear on this when they...

Lucky you to get to use an M240 loaner. Did Leica send it to you while your M9 is being repaired? I should have such luck!

I finally received my M9. I sent it in about the middle of June so it's been slightly over 4 months.

Here's what it said on the invoice:

I sent my M9 in about the middle of June, so I guess this means I should receive it soon :)

Oh, and I guess I'll have to revise my signature soon since it says my Leica M9 is temporarily at Leica NJ...

Yes, absolutely. I honestly could not see any signs of damage to the sensor no matter how hard I looked at my images of blue sky, yet I sent in my M9 anyway. I am very thankful they are doing the...

I spoke with Leica the other day and was told that the time frame was five months from the time the camera is first sent to them. In my case, they received my M9 towards the end of June. I estimate...

Thanks all. Good to know that this means the sensor will be replaced.

Thanks too for the suggestion to ask Leica to state this in the event I ever sell the camera

I think you made the right decision by sending it in. How much did Schiller's Photo charge you for shipping it to Leica?

Interesting that Leica NJ is sending all the cameras to Leica in Germany. ...

Wonderful news! I must admit that when I first saw the cost, it looked like much more than
$0.00. It took a second look for me to realize that it didn't cost you anything.

Approximately how long...

Raid,

Yes, I believe this is how it works. Of course, I will know for sure, in the case of my own M9, when I hear back from Leica if they have discovered sensor corrosion.

I learned a lot when I...

Raid,

The cost to me would be $2,350, a little over half of the new cost of a Leica Q, which is $4,250.

Yes, I believe such a trade depends on having a damaged sensor on the M9.

That's good that it only took about three weeks from the time you sent it to Leica NJ until you heard from them confirming corrosion on the sensor.

In their reply to you, did they give you an...

I am concerned as I bought my Leica M9 used, actually from an ad in the classifieds here at RFF from someone who lived in the same city as me. I don't know how old the camera is since I bought it...
