I'm just saying I wouldn't trust it. I'm sure Leica didn't think the original would corrode either. However, if I loved the camera like you guys do, maybe I'd go for it.

As it is, my M9 and Monochrom1 (with new sensors ) are never-sell cameras. The M240 came and went, the M10 holds no interest for me. As far as I am concerned the M9 is the optimum digital M. It sits next to my M6 classic.
I have same opinion on M9.

Another factor for how many M9 sensors are affected is how many owners knows.
In many cases and still up to now , it is sensor with corrosion, but owner is not aware.

The new sensor is developed specifically not to corrode.

That is of course quite possible, but in that case, no harm done, I suppose.
