thanks to those who offered an answer/sympathy for what did in fact turn
out to be a battery problem. i wound up heading over to the maison du
leica, popped in a new battery, and i had regular, constant metering once

btw, the man that runs the shop is quite helpful & friendly, and there is a
lot of leica gear - new and used - to check out (and purchase, for the
stout of heart and wallet). the next time you're in paris, la maison du
leica is definitely worth a visit.


p.s. another btw, during a visit several weeks ago, displayed in one of the
cases was the oft discussed but rarely seen apo asph 90 summicron m. i was
told that this was the only one they had received, that it had long ago
been sold, and that some 13 more were then on order. today i asked if he
had ever received any others - he hadn't.
