Many people placed order with Amazon for the M9 on 1/16 when they started taking pre-orders. Also, some of those people had their order canceled by Amazon a few days later. NOW Amazon is saying that was a mistake and are offering a $100 discount when you re-pre-order! Yep, if you got the shaft after you ordered then you can now save $100 if you place that order again. Also, to those who did not order yet, feel free to use my direct links below to order the black or grey M9! They are accepting orders for both colors.
Here is the e-mail from Amazon that was sent to those who ordered the camera and then had the order canceled:
Greetings from Amazon.com.
Amazon.com recently, and inadvertently, cancelled your pending order
for the Leica M9 digital camera. While we cannot automatically
re-instate your order, please accept our sincere apologies and the
opportunity to place your order again, at a discount of $100.
All you need to do is re-order the Leica M9 from Amazon.com by
February 28, 2010; we’ll automatically apply a $100 credit to your
order at the time of shipment.
The discount will apply only to the purchase of one Leica M9, sold by
Amazon.com, and does not apply to products sold by third-party
merchants and other sellers through the Amazon.com site. Additional
products within the same order are not subject to discount.
Please note that the M9 is in high demand and supplies from the
manufacturer are highly constrained. Amazon.com is working to fulfill
all customer orders as quickly as possible while Leica continues to
focus on their consistently precise production of world-class cameras
As always, we will not charge your credit card until the product
ships. Again, we apologize for any inconvenience.
