New vs Old > M9 sensor lines increase after Leica USA repair


Recommended Posts

Further, here is an image shot with the M9's new-gen sensor. 

 

underexposed at ISO 640, and pushed to around an equivalent ISO of 12800.

 

The banding is not nearly as obvious as what I've seen the old-gen sensor produced at a mere 2-stop push when paired with a 32GB 94mb/sec SD card or a 1st-gen Toshiba WIFI SD card.

 

Lovely tones! Better than my film M night shots with 400 pushed @3200.

Bottom line ... after the holidays I spoke to my contact @ Leica > he confirmed that some sensors perform not as good as others > they changed the sensor again  > got it back yesterday ( after sending it in in June of last year and then again in November)

3rd sensor performs as expected   ... Go figure

      Hello guest! Please register or sign in to view the hidden content. Hallo Gast! Du willst die Bilder sehen? Einfach registrieren oder anmelden! Hello fellow Leica users,
      Long story short, I've been a film Leica M shooter for a while now (M2), and I've been considering buying my first digital M. Since they are not even close as repairable as fully mechanical analog M's, I really don't want to spend that much money on a digital one. 
      So I came across a lady willing to sell me her M9 for a "bargain" (something like U$250), but as you guys can tell from the picture above, it comes with the dreaded corroded sensor. 
      I'm no professional and I want one of these to try them out, since I've never truly used one.
      My question is: how's the situation of this one in particular, can it be used in anyway in this condition? Is it worth it for the price? And finally, is the 1000U$ dollars repair worth in my situation? 

      I'll be very happy with any contributions.
      Best Regards,
      Roger

      And now for something completely different. We all exchange our views here, but we do not hear each other speaking. Now you can hear what I sound like.  After the huge amount of interest in my 'Swiss Photos' article, this website in California, which specialises in collections of all kinds, asked me to record a podcast on my camera collecting activities. This was recorded in the form of an interview and the host in California then edited it down to what is heard here. I was asked to avoid too much technical detail, but there is a lot here about Leica and some of my other collecting interests. The second half of the piece goes into the Swiss Photos in some detail.
