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

      Dear all, I am totall new to the leica digital world. I currently brought a M9 in a excellent condition. But one thing makes me a little bit wondering: sometimes the LCD display shows me pictures with strange rings. It happened very often when I shoot in-door under poor/artificial light source. the rings disappeared when I shoot under higher iso (1600 or higher). 
       
      Leica Care told me it is normal. The camera have to compress the original photo extremely to be able to show it on this small LCD screen. Due to the bad resolution and colour depth of the compressed picture, these rings may appears. 
       
      The explanation by Leica is quite OK. But yesterday I have the chance to try a Leica M8.2. It doesn’t show any rings when shooting under the same condition. Now I am really confused.
      Can anyone tell me if it is normal bei M9 or my LCD is somehow defect?
      Thanks s lot for your help!
      Best regards 
      Frank

      I recently purchased a Leica M9,  that appears to possibly be the first M9 produced.  Serial number is 3803501.  The camera appears  to be in like new condition with all original packaging.
      I purchased the camera to use,  not sit in a a collection.  My thoughts are:  Even though it is a digital camera, does it have significant collectors value that would make a mistake to use it as an every day camera?    Is it likely that digital cameras will never have significant collectors value?    I would  appreciate anybody's thoughts.

      I am selling my M9 (and my M10-D in another advert) as I have decided to upgrade to the M10-R. It is in mint condition. I got it directly from Leica but I do not have the box, I think I only have the camera and charger. The rangefinder seems to work fine.
      It has the new sensor (latest version).
      I added photos of the camera. The lens is not included, just the body.
      Collection in SW London or I will ship it to you. No returns, but happy to answer any questions you have asap, to help you with your decision.

      Hi all,
      Not sure there is any solution to this but my M9 screen has started to show what appear to be dead pixels, to be clear they are not on the photo but are the screen pixels. (excuse crappy phone photo). Anyone seen this before or have any idea if it is fixable. To be fair it isn't a show stopper since I rarely use the screen except in tricky light to check exposure which is still doable.
      Any comments/advice welcome but I fear I will have to put up with it until it eventually dies. Shame as it has an new style sensor and otherwise works fine.

      I owe to Leica the opportunity of this image. In fact, a couple of days ago, the Leica Store of Rome, Via dei Due Macelli, gave me a Leica S with a 30-90 lens, for me to have fun for an hour. It was about sunset. So, I climbed up the Spanish Steps, and also the stairs of the Church of "Trinità dei Monti". And then, I waited ... As I was pointing at the shadow of the balustrade of the stairs and of myself taking the photo, a couple climbing the stairs of the Church entered my viewfinder. It was easy, then, to seize the moment.
