Leica Camera just announced that they will be changing the Leica M camera leatherette cladding for several M cameras. The
following M cameras will soon have a leatherette cladding as opposed to the previous vulcanite cladding:

Leica is making this change as the “Vulcanite” material is no longer available. After extensive quality control tests, they have selected this particular leatherette cladding for the black Leica M 9, the black and silver Leica M9-P, the Leica MP à la carte and Leica M7 à la carte. The leatherette differs from the “Vulcanite” used up to now. The new leatherette cladding is slightly softer with a flatter surface embossing and a more matte finish. This improves the users hold on the camera.

The change will be implemented during serial production, meaning that the first cameras with the leatherette cladding will be delivered shortly.

    The Vulcanite on my M9-P lifted after a few days and I sent it back to leica. problem is they either didn’t fix it or it lifted again. Any suggestions on what adhesive I can use rather then send it away for weeks?
