Eric don't hold your breath on this one I'd wait until I put film in the
camera before getting into a sweat.

I've gone through 4 R8's, sorry 5, and never experienced any scratches,
period! And mine have been used more than taking for a short walk on a
Sunday around the park!

And if it's something that Leica have acknowledged, other than the
scuttlebutt so often bantered about on the internet, I'm sure you'll find
the camera is still under warranty and it'll be fixed. So lad have a good
nights sleep and awake refreshed and ready to enjoy one great camera. :-)
