The "buzz" you describe is normal.  I've owned two different R6.2s that make
this same sound.  Like you, I noticed it right away, but it doesn't affect
the camera's operation in any way.

Could I ask some of the more mechanically minded
LUG'ers why there is a 1 second buz after I trip
the shutter when set to 1/250th on my R6.2?

It only happens at that speed setting, and doesn't
happen when I use the camera with the Motor Winder R.

I've been reassured by a few local Leica tech's that 
it is 'normal'.  But if so, then looks like a hellova 
design oversight to me!
