I suppose that would be a reasonable comment but hardly sufficient to
call it a piece of crap!   
Of course I'm assuming because this is on the LUG the poster is
referring to a Leica? 

However, what would be the assumption of quality build if the same
camera were to make a 100 747 flights and continue to work just tikkity
boo perfect?   "As solid as a brick sh--t house?"
Now that's going to take a lot of 747 flights! ;-)  And I bet you could
throw in a couple of chopper rides to boot.
