Quick News: So, you took the leap and purchased the $7,000+ Leica m9, only to find out that it corrupts any SD card that you slip into its magnesium alloy body… bummer! Fortunately Leica has taken note to the issue and revealed plans to rectify the situation:
Thanks to the close collaboration with SD card manufacturers, Leica has now managed to rectify the fault by making adjustments to the firmware. To ensure compatibility with as many cards as possible and to ensure that all the related processes remain fault-free and are not compromised, comprehensive testing must be carried out in the development phase.
In the coming weeks we will test a beta version of the firmware in practice in cooperation with affected and selected customers.
Although no exact date was given, rest assured that a firmware update is in the works and will be released after it has been fully tested.
