I have sent my M8 to Germany for R/F close distance adjustment on 5/9/2008.

I rang repair centre today and It was completed. They read me the report and it was Huge repair.

 

What fabulous service!

 

I hope you write them a big thank you letter.

 

 

PS: If you would prefer to have an older CCD I'll swop you my older M8 for yours

Basically, he should check the sensor, because there is a very big chance they have exchanged it with Nikon's D300 one, since they know that he loves Nikons: he have said it numerous times here

 

NO I want them to install Canon Eos5 mark II ccd Or Sony Alpha 900 CCD OR Nikon D3 CCD.

Well, this confirms my theory that Leica is aware of sensor and other components problems and they replace them "cas pas cas" while upgrading and repairing cameras without a factory recall, which will be desastrous for them. (See "Oh Darn a line" thread):

 

 

 

Leica is also replacing both the vulcanite and the Leica leather half case protector (14869) in my two cameras because the Leica protector damages the vulcanite.

 

Cheers

 

I hope they did a good job though.

I am one of the reluctant... after all, WB was the only issue I noticed with my first firmware... it was fixed before the last update... and haven't seen evidence of significant improvement on other areas with the last... maybe I'm simply lazy, but wait.

 

DO~NT do it! It is SXXXT! I hope mine is not ver 2.0!

So you send a camera to Leica with a problem with the sensor and they replace it FOC under warranty rather than map a dead pixel - can they do this mapping anyway? Most people would see that as outstanding service.

 

Of course they could! I had no problem with sensor or circuit board. I just asked them to check it out fully. Not just sign the card and stamp it.(remember? when you open the M8 for first time I was impressed with individually signed card)

I agree that you've had good service and you conspiracy theory is nonsense. Not every action by Leica's service department is intended to be a cover up for some looming disaster. I do actually think they do a good job. It's the marketing people who get up my nose.

 

MMMM I think you should work for Leica Germany I can see that you are electronics engineer . So quality control will be better!!!

Thanks for your comment.

I will let you know if there are any changes to my body.

So you asked them to check it out fully ... which they obviously did, and gave you a bunch of new parts to forestall even the teeniest chance of something going wrong, possibly extending the amount of time before electronic failure by a significant amount (electronic devices *will* fail at some point, as I'm sure you know).

 

Now that's the kind of classic "we really care" service you don't see much these days. I am impressed.

I actually think they're unbelievably good sometimes! Heard from Leica yesterday that my M8 with the darn line problem is now in the workshop and will be fixed, upgraded and returned by the beginning of next week (13 October). A 2 week turnround in a busy period strikes me as pretty good.

I totally agree! My M8s arrived on Monday 6th and they will leave Solms on Tuesday 14th. Just one week...

Luigi, just get the thing... The auto ISO will certainly help a lot. I can only see just one negative with all this, and this is the chance of something going wrong while upgrading, but in the end its just a camera...

And yes Caparobertsan you jut need to go watch "conspiracy theories" with Julia Roberts and Mel Gibson

 

I watched Not that bad. I haven`t seen Julia and Mel for a while though....

NO..... When I send it in I think there was no ver 2.0 revealed as yet.

I REALLY don't see the problem here. The added functionality of Auto ISO isn't a gimmick - it really helps. Second, SDHC support is going to be important in the future as it gets harder to get non-SDHC cards... What's to complain about?

I w ill see if this ccd is any good. BUT Actually I think this one could be the ultra thin but effective IR/UV cut filter installed version(new type ccd)!!!! I read somewhere.

If that is the case I do`nt want it. Because I enjoy IR photos with this camera! Great for this purpose!!!! GoD!! ANothe downgrade by Leica!
