At first I was a bit concerned, but then I noticed that at the official .7m close focus distance, the rangfinder worked fine, it was only when I focused closer that the rangefinder stopped working. I guess there was some additional movement in the focusing helicoid of the lens that was more than what the specs promised, and more than what the camera's rangefinder was capable of. More importantly, the lens seems to focus accurately, so I stopped worrying about it. By the way, it happens with both of my M6s. Dan C.
