Repair & Maintenance

Perfect maintenance and repair of your Leica products worldwide

In photography, in-depth knowledge is just as important as the use of finest optical elements. That is why our factory technicians have a profound understanding of Leica products. Whether you own a M-Camera, spotting scope or binoculars, they are there to help you with your Leica product.

As experts in their field, they know how to ensure the quality, precision, long life, and intrinsic value of your product. Furthermore, they strive to find the best solution for your individual needs – from counsel to sales and repair & maintenance services.

Dear customers,

Film photography has globally experienced a veritable renaissance in recent years.
Thanks to the great interest, analogue M cameras reach us from all over the world for service, because only at our headquarters in Wetzlar specially trained technicians have the necessary expertise.

Before sending in your order, please note that the service for our analogue models currently takes up to 10 months. Based on the trend of the order situation and our personnel capacity, we can currently neither make binding statements on the service duration nor respond to desired deadlines.

We are working intensively to minimize repair times while continuing to meet the highest quality standards.

Trusting that the situation will improve soon, we thank you very much for your understanding.

Repair service for Leica Sport Optics products

The Leica Camera AG factory in Portugal was established in 1972 and employs a workforce of highly-skilled and experienced personnel. In future, we intend to draw more on their outstanding expertise and knowledge to the benefit of our Leica Sport Optics customers, and have therefore decided to merge the service centres in Portugal and Wetzlar. In this way, we make it possible to offer you an exceptional level of first-class service from one single source. If you wish to send us your Sport Optics product for maintenance or repair, then please ship your Leica binoculars, riflescope or spotting scope directly to our Customer Care Service Centre in Portugal. Our colleagues there will send you a cost estimate, a detailed report on any repairs that may be required or your invoice – and will naturally safely return your Leica Sport Optics product to you after completion of the maintenance or repair order.

Important information for shipments from outside the EU

Please be advised that customs handling can take 5-7 days, the processing period for your order between arrival of the product and confirmation of receipt will therefore be delayed. You will receive confirmation of receipt as soon as your equipment has been registered after customs release.

To enable the fastest customs processing possible, we strongly recommend to ship with UPS or FedEx.  With transport by other carriers the process will take considerably longer.

Our Customer Care representatives gladly support you if you have questions regarding customs and shipping. 
Please contact us via E-Mail or by phone under +49(0)6441-2080-189.

Leica’s exclusive Pick-up Service is the quickest and easiest way to send in your Leica product for service during warranty period. Simply give our Customer Care Representatives or your local Service Partner a call.

Your goods are collected directly from you on the agreed day. All you need to do is package the device and enclose your warranty card to your repair order.


Latest information concerning the repair capacity for camera models Leica M9 / M9-P / M9 Monochrom / M-E

The production of the CCD sensors for the Leica M9 models has been discontinued. Therefore, subsequent deliveries are no longer possible and defective sensors cannot be replaced. Until further notice, all other repairs on the M9 model generation can still be carried out.

In place of the sensor exchange we are offering new attractive conditions to our customers to trade in their camera with a defective sensor and purchase a current Leica camera model.
