If you’re planning on sending your Leica M9 out for repairs, brace yourself for some bad news: a shortage in Leica M9 sensors is causing significant delays.
A number of people have been writing in to Leica Rumors, reporting that they have been experiencing delays trying to get their M9 sensor repaired. In some cases, brand new Leica M9′s have been shipped out to the people who sent in their shooters because the necessary part is currently out of stock.
We might see the M9 get discontinued soon, since rumors are rife that the manufacturer is set on announcing the Leica M10 at their upcoming event this May 10th.[via Leica Rumors]
