Give me a break, John. You've turned the world on its head. Now you're 
blaming him for complaining that a brand-new Leica malfunctions? Yes, one 
should try a new product ASAP. But you've badly deflected the point of his 

P.S. IMHO you're wrong, a Leica is not like a toaster or vacuum cleaner any 
more than a Ferrari or Porsche is like a common consumer product. It is of 
course a tool but it is for many, obviously you are not among them, as a 
legendary tool.
