It is October now and for the two months you were using the lens you did not email us you are having issues despite the great photos you shared.

Wrong. Please check email on June 22.

I received an email from you on the 21st that the lens was shipped. I received the lens on the 22nd. I emailed you THAT SAME DAY about my initial impression.
Here is the email to be exact if you've forgotten it.

"Andrew@ SLR Magic,

On June 26 2012 you said:


I can see where our confusion meets but worry not as I now understand our situation here. I come to you as a prospective customer, and at the same time, an enthusiast photographer/reviewer. As agreed, I will review the HyperPrime lens for the internet. I must admit, however, that the lens arrived much sooner that I have expected. I am quite impressed! I have yet had the chance to use the lens this past weekend since I was on a business trip, but I will get using and reviewing the lens very soon.

Keep in contact!



I understood you do not have time to try the lens on yet but you do have an M9 with you.

On July 18 2012 you said:

"To be honest, the lens was delivered much sooner than I expected. I was not ready to review the unit since my M9 is not scheduled to return until the end of August."

"FYI, I began writing a review for the lens but have yet to assess the optical performance since I do not have a camera to test the lens on; 85% of what I've written mentions the several flaws I observed throughout the construction of the lens."

You never mentioned you had no M9 camera for the whole time and that you have no camera till end of August. I am surprised you have almost completed more than 85% of your review without any camera to try the lens on.

On July 18th we said to you:

"We would suggest that you wait for your M9P to be returned from Leica,
and you can use our lens. The lens has a warranty of 3 years starting
from the date that it arrived your mailing address in case of
mechanical defects.  Since you do not have your camera with you when
you received our lens, the best we can offer you is that once you
received your camera body from Leica, please email a copy of the
postal receipt of your camera to us.  After receipt of your email copy
of the postal receipt from Leica by end of August to us, we will help
you adjust your 30 days exchange starting date in case of mechanical
problem with our lens.  We hope this can reduce your worry."

We were willing to push back the 3 years warranty period to not start till August as long as you show us the return service receipt from Leica when you get it back end of August. It is quite difficult to get this level of service even at Leica. If you ship a camera for repair at Leica they will not push back the warranty period of their lenses for you.

I state again, we have NOT received any email from you ever since you got your camera back from Leica the end of August.

Unless you can show you have followed up with us after you have received your camera from Leica in end of August this is the end of conversation as it is getting repetitive.
