Every single Leica camera I have owned has. And my two M6s have been 
especially that. There MAY be some QC problems in small batches that sneak 
out. And Leica does have to fix that. No doubt about it. But to pan the M6 
as a defective camera is pure fantasy. Mine is a superb picture-making 
machine. I am not obsessed with the M3. I've never liked them all that 
much. And I love my M6.
