I thought I dodged it. I purchased a low mile M8 about 3 months ago that did not exhibit the vertical line. I was messin with a Summitar last night and had read about under exposing that particular lens by1.3 stops. Well, when I reviewed the images, guess what. 640 and 1250, plain as day and horrified. My question is twofold:
Can New Jersey successfully remap the sensor and who has had it done and most importantly, how much?
Would love for Leica to acknowledge the issue and step up but I get a sneakin hunch it ain't gonna happen. Camera has less than 5000 actuations.
I have parked a bunch of DSLR gear in favor of the rangefinder experience, and in particular my M8, but I don't have a ton of money to put into this camera. I don't want to even think about shutter or complete sensor at some point.
I'm bummed folks, I was hoping for the best.
