Subject: [Leica] M4 blues

Dropped my M4 with a 21mm and finder while working friday night. The finder
took the full blow, surviving without a scratch, but placed a considerable
dent in the top plate, enough to jam, or break the rangefinder mechanism. I
finished the shoot guestimating distance (not so bad with a 21) and used an
M6 for the 50 and 35.
It was a cool shoot though, in spite of breakage; Sacred Music, Sacred
Dance performed by the Tibetan Buddhist lamas from Drepung Loseling
Monastery. Flash strictly forbidden. A real Leica event.
Anyhow, now I need repair and don't want to send the camera to Leica New
Jersey again.
Could someone please send me Sherry Kreuters address? Email and regular mail.
