Leica Offers to Turn Any M9 into a M9-P

If you had any doubts that Leica’s new M9-P is simply the M9 given a cosmetic makeover, get this: Leica is offering to upgrade any customer’s M9 camera into an M9-P. For the low Leica-esque price of $1,995, the company will give your camera “sapphire glass” for your LCD screen and a new top cover without the famous Leica red dot. If only upgrading to the latest DSLR were this easy!

    Wow, a little sheet of sapphire crystal for $2 Grand, what a bargain. I don’t see how they justify this when you could pick up a 50mm Cron for the same price (assuming it was in stock).

    I work in the luxury watch world and even Patek Phillipe or Rolex would have the audacity to charge this much for Sapphire Crystal.
