John - IF the story is as stated - do you think one should 
have to wait 3 months for the repairs?  IF this was a defect
right out of the box then how is this any different than
passport protection.  I certainly would hope that defect
or passport covered calamity would be reacted to in something
less than a quarter of a year.

To be honest I don't know who the orignial poster was but I have
to wonder if this post wasn't a troll?  I mean come on - who on the
list professional or amateur hasn't waited with baited breath at the
arrival of a their newly purchased M?  Whether you think of the M
as just a tool or as a Ferrari both groups would do most anything to
run a roll of film thru it within the first 24 hours.  

Troll v. No Troll?  I vote troll

ernie nitka - 1996 arrival of first M running around in his
BVD taking snaps indoors just to get something in and out
of this tool of a Ferrari!!!

Oh course he should expect prompt and courteous service. My complaint is
that he now expects Leica to automatically give him a new body. If he had
tried the camera the day he bought it, then I think they should have given
him a new body right then and there. Three months later, with all the
warranty cards submitted, rebates received and passport card issued, it is
another matter entirely.
