OpticsPlanet.com is an Authorized US Dealer for Leica products, and all Leica products we sell are covered by Leica's Factory Passport warranty.   

Leica provides full international warranty coverage for all its products as outlined in the warranty cards supplied with and specific to those products shipped to you from OpticsPlanet.com. Since we are an Authorized US Leica Dealer, all Leica Digital Cameras, Leica Binoculars, Leica Spotting Scopes, Leica Laser Rangefinders, and Leica 35mm Cameras come with full Leica Passport Warranty.   Each Leica Optics product shipped from OpticsPlanet.com is supplied with an international warranty card that outlines the terms of the international warranty for that product.

All Leica Digital Cameras, Leica Binoculars, Leica Spotting Scopes, Leica Laser Rangefinders, and Leica 35mm Cameras sold by OpticsPlanet.com are officially imported into the U.S. by Leica USA, and therefore carry the USA Passport Protection Plan (for M and R Cameras and Lenses) or the USA Lifetime Sport Optics Protection Plan for optics covered under that plan. USA Passport-protected Leica products sold by Optics Planet enjoy additional coverage over and above the warranty coverage offered by the international, or Leica factory, warranty. For Leica Binoculars and Leica Spotting Scopes covered by the Lifetime Sport Optics Protection Plan, the coverage is, as the title of the plan states, for the lifetime of the user.

Though the USA Passport Protection Plan is not available for products purchased from non-U.S. authorized dealers, any Leica agency worldwide will help you if you experience problems with your Leica product, as all Leica products are covered under the international warranty. Leica handles the repair or replacement of the product under the terms of the warranty is at its discretion, but the customer's needs are always the first priority. For your own protection, while traveling,  carry your Leica warranty card or warranty registration (international or Leica USA Passport) so that you can present this verification to the agency in question should you experience any problems during the warranty period.
