New order process - As of August 2008
New is that you can commission the upgrades either through your Leica dealer or directly through the Leica Customer Service as of August 2008. Important: Neither will an additional registration on the Leica Camera AG Homepage be necessary nor the acquisition of certificates - the order will be handled just like any other service commission. The payment will only be due before your camera is sent back to you.
Upgrades in authorized LEICA M8 Service Centers:
As planned, fitting the sapphire glass cover and the shutter will presumably commence as of August 2008 in Germany, and it will also be possible (this is new) in all other authorized LEICA M8 Service Centers in the USA, Japan, Hong Kong, and Korea. Please observe that sending the camera to a Service Center is carried out at your own expense. Within the EU, you may call upon our Quick or Express Service for the upgrades.
The three upgrade-options now available will cost:
- ex 1120,- EUR for both the shutter and the sapphire glass cover
- ex 750,- EUR for the sapphire glass cover only
- ex 800,- EUR for the shutter only
There is no need to reserve a "certificate" from Leica for this upgrade.
You can make upgrade arrangements through a Leica dealer or directly with Leica.
The Quick or Express Service is available within the EU.
Payment due only when upgraded camera is ready to be returned.
