TL2 availability

Recommended Posts

Guest VVJ

If all goes well I should get mine on Friday.  It was sent via FedEx today.

Got mine back yesterday. Well, not back as such. It's a new camera, not the one I returned. Visoflex seems to cause no more problems.

I presume unpacking loads of cameras, loading new firmware, testing them and re-packaging takes a while. 

 

I recall a photo of the packing dept for either the SL or one of the lenses .... which seemed to consist of a single bored middle aged lady stuffing things into boxes .....

I've been told I have to wait a few weeks after ordering today. Dealers seem to have demos, but not stock.

 

Possibly not a few weeks yet, but chime in if the TL2 is shipping by now...

I received mine (in the US) on Friday August 4th.

Hi folks - any news/updated status regarding the availability of the TL2 after the fix?

Still waiting to hear back from the D.C. Leica Store

FWIW, I don't think mine had been returned to Wetzlar, unpacked, fixed and repacked before coming to me. Leica Mayfair updated the firmware on the spot before handing it over. OTOH, it wasn't old stock in the shop - I had to wait a week after ordering.

UK dealers have seen nothing now since the initial batch as far as I can tell. 

 

I gave up waiting and have got one direct from Germany ..... although at a premium as the £ exchange rate is so awful.

 

The usual story from Leica ..... a few to whet appetites and then weeks/months of waiting till they get round to making another lot. I had a long chat with a dealer who has been telling Leica this is a daft way to release products for nigh on 30years .... but it's the same old story. He estimates the current M10 wait is 6+months. 

 

But ..... as with every Leica product ..... someone, somewhere will have one in stock ..... and a hour of internet searching and phone calls will get you what you want ....

Well, I am still waiting. I have one on order from a local dealer (I prefer to support the locals), but it looks like I have to extend the search range... Would be good to hear if/when a new batches reach your country!

A quick search of the main Leica Dealers in Germany last week found both chrome and black in stock. I didn't ask when they appeared... just grabbed one whilst I could

Mine just shipped from B&H today ... 

 

 

Seems to have been a very limited quantity - I signed up for stock alerts but didn't get an email. I just purchased a silver TL2 at the Las Vegas Leica store. It was the last TL2 body in that store. None of the other Leica stores in the country are showing any stock. Nothing on Amazon, B&H or Adorama.

i talked to Los Angeles Leica store last week, and they said that they made some changes, almost sounds like a hardware change, and that they would be shipping somewhere in the beginning of September again.  He said that Leica did not want to just rely on a SW patch.
