Subject: Re: [Leica] [DR Summicron on the M6]

For what it's worth, I just tried my DR Summicron (a bit older than 
Marc's) on an M6 (a little younger than Marc's) with the round 
opening. In keeping with the advice in the 1987 Leica Handbook, I set 
the lens at infinity and everything slid into place nicely.  Then, at 
the risk of a repair bill, I changed the lens focus setting and 
noticed that while the lens did lock I felt a tad of resistance as if 
the focus cam was hitting something.

So now I wonder whether those who could not mount their Summicron 
eyes were in fact not mounting the lens itself properly.
