In the U.S. you can get the upgrade for about $5,000.

 

You sell your M8 (should be able to get around $2,000* -- if it's in good shape) and apply that to an M9.

 

Pretty simple.

 

:)

 

*We'll need to see where prices stabilize.

 

mmmm, But I like M"8"!!,,,,,,,:o Leica once said M8 is forever. Infinity promise!

I want it and I will pay if it does not cost as much. And I asked my Chinese friend about number "9" and "8". He told me 9 is good but 8 is better.

I like 8 personally. You see what had happend to R9?

 

Do it the other way round....

a) Buy an M9.

B) Ask Leica for an M8 top plate.

c) Swap it with your M9's top plate.

d) Be prepared for people asking you why the small display doesn't work...

:rolleyes:

Stefan

You should go hang out at the M9 forum... You will find the grass is not greener on the other side...

Forget it.

 

1) Leica would have to invest R&D to allow this. They better focus their R&D on the M10.

 

2) Even if Leica came up with a solution, it would be too expensive. This is not simply take out old sensor and put in new. Many other things need to be changed. And Leica would have charge for the extra guarantee. Just remember how expensive the upgrade for the M8 was -- and the upgrade was nothing compared to putting a M9 sensor into the M8.
