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 Customer.Care@leica-camera.com or by phone under +49(0)6441-2080-189.
Leica’s exclusive Pick-up Service is quickest and easiest way to send in your Leica product for service. 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.
This service is free of charge under warranty. However, you may also take advantage of this service outside the warranty period for a small fee.
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.

New IATA (International Air Transport Association) regulations for the transportation of lithium-ion batteries by air
The international regulations of the IATA (International Air Transport Association) for the transportation of lithium-ion batteries by air have been changed and came into force with effect from 1 April 2016: http://www.iata.org/whatwedo/cargo/dgr/Documents/lithium-battery-update.pdf
This also affects the shipping of Leica products with used lithium-ion batteries. In compliance with the new IATA regulations, Leica Customer Care must call your particular attention to our new ruling that lithium-ion batteries may no longer be shipped together with products submitted for repair.
All batteries contained in the cameras must be removed from the product before shipment and safely stored. Furthermore, any product accessories or equipment not required for the purposes of the repair should be handed back to the customer for safekeeping.
Thank you for your support in helping us to comply with the new IATA regulations and for your valuable contribution to safety and sustainability.
