Leica's Plans To Fix the Flawed M8 Flagship...Kinda

This image was lost some time after publication, but you can still view it here.

After recognizing that its Leica M8 camera had various problems like IR sensitivity and banding, the company's announced a plan to fix early adopter's cameras free of charge.


The plan is tricky, though:

register your M8 on Leica's website and they will send you instructions on how to send in your camera to the service center in Solms. All new cameras made from this date forward will have the problem already fixed. And to solve the IR sensitivity problem, Leica is going to give users two free filters to attach onto the lens. A better solution would have been to fix the IR issue in the camera, but what do we know?
