Taken from the Leica Forum the lenses and R9 bodies have ceased production and there will no be future production. There however is talks of producing a digital camera that will replace the R9. Question is now how expensive is that camera going to be, and will there be any future in it?
I own and use a Leica R8 and also own 7 lenses. I have hung onto the lenses and camera system hoping that a digital future would happen that would be viable. Now we can see what they deliver. If the price is too high verses the output I might have to go Nikon. Maybe find an adapter to use the Leica glass on the Nikon body as I will probably never get what I have paid for in glass back.
And the digital Modul-R they ceased production on that 3 years ago and finding those for sale is hard to find and when they are up for sale, at ridiculous prices.
