I use both the M8 and M9. Can I leave the UV/IR filters on the lenses?

For focal lengths of 35mm and longer, yes. For focal lengths wider than 35mm this is not recommended, because through the UV/IR filter a color shift will appear in the corners.

Can my LEICA M8 or M8.2 be upgraded with the Sensor of the M9?

No. In addition to the sensor, many additional and components have been changed (e.g. the shutter) an upgrade of the M8 or M8.2 is economically non-sense and therefore not offered.

Why was the display for battery and pictures remaining on the top plate omitted?

The monitor offers substantially more room for a clear and exact display of the data and permits additional information such as card size, shutter speed and lens type. In contrast to the display on...

The monitor offers substantially more room for a clear and exact display of the data and permits additional information such as card size, shutter speed and lens type. In contrast to the display on the M8, the information can be easily seen in low light situations. For this reason we decided to remove the display in the top plate.

Why are the framelines calibrated at 1m, instead of 2m as in the M8.2?

As a result of the larger sensor size compared to the M8 and M8.2, a much smaller enlargement factor of the lens arises. Therefore the proven setting of the LEICA M7/MP was selected for the M9.

In principle, all cards complying with the SD/SDHC specifcations will work. Since this market with its many distributers changes quickly, Leica cannot constantly check the compatibility. As we limit our compatibility testing program to tests with SD memory cards manufactured by San Disk, we can only guarantee problem-free camera function with these cards. The read/write speed
of the M9 is limited by the hardware. The maximum achievable read and write speeds are around 12 MB/s. Modern SD cards offering faster read/write speeds may be used in the camera, but do not show better performance when used with the Leica M9/M9-P.
