Thanks Dominique for the info. I have not bought my issue yet, but this
seems incredible. Why should the rotation direction change ???? Just to
bother generations of Leica users, and to test user IQ everytime he/she
goes from 1 body to the other (not to mention different brands) ?  I
already find rotation discrepancies on lenses a major handicap when I go
from leica M to nikon SLR in a rush. So now, we will have to manage
shutter dial discrepancies between bodies deprived of any aperture
priority automatism... This seems plainly stupid !
Are you absolutely sure ?

For the rest, the conservative shutter performance was unfortunately
expected...

Friendly regards
