Subject: [Leica] Not sharp @ f16

Hi Folks,
        As you may know I have owned a Leica M6 'classic' for about a month 
now. My first results have been really good and I have been impressed by it 
sharpness. But recently I have noticed that when shooting at F16 the 
resulting image isnt sharp, infact its almost blurry. Even when focusing on 
infinity, subjects at the horizon seem quite fuzzy. Its baffling me because 
at other F#s the images are clean and v sharp. Might it be marks on the 
lens, that arent normally a problem at other F#s, but are degrading the 
image when shooting at a v small aperture? What do you think? The lens is 
G'teed so Ill probably take it back, I just wondered what the hell it was!
Many Regards
