Like most DSLR does have its own shutter actuation limit i.e Nikon D700 up to 150K, D3 are up to 300K . Okay here is the question, what is the shutter actuation limit for the Leica M9 because I can't find any info about it

Just wondering though..

Haha Razvan.
BTW, I stil have a Zeiss Ikon rolfilm camera, in good wotking condition.
It's pre WWII, you know.
Leaf shutter, works perfectly
It was my first camera, when I was 15 years old.
I can't find rolfilm nowadays. :-(

Assuming the shutter works much the same as a SLR, the life could be expected to be in a similar ball park too. And I'm sure Leica will fit a new one for you when it wears out, so you don't end up with an expensive brick.

To me the camera style doesn't really promote massive volume shooting, so I'd imagine its practical usage life would be quite long.

Hi Adi,

At least one guy over at the Leica User Forum thinks the answer is about 150,000.

IMHO owning a Leica wouldn't be quite like owning your typical Japanese DSLR/EVIL camera. The M9 is hand-built and tested and Leica are quite happy to service "historical" models. From Leica's website:
    Depth of knowledge is as important as depth of field. Not only are Leica's worldwide repair centres constantly monitored and certified, but our factory technicians have a profound understanding of every last detail of every Leica ever made. Leica maintains a worldwide service network to ensure the legendary quality, precision, long life, and intrinsic value of Leica products for many years. Current or historical Leica models are maintained or repaired at the Solms factory or in an authorised workshop near you, by trained technicians using only original spare parts.
If and when I buy my first Leica (M10 perhaps) I would also hope I'd have bought not only my last Leica but my last interchangeable lens camera! 8)

Bob.

P.S. Mind you, with the price of Leica glass and the need to start a collection of same I probably wouldn't be in any rush to buy another body even if my bank manager let me. :twisted:
