No, fortunately my terrific dealer agreed to accept a return.

I did all I could stand to overcome my personal objections to the camera.
Believe me that I wanted a different outcome. But I simply found it
impossible to overcome my powerful, negative visceral reaction to using this
camera -- particularly when considering what it cost, my style of
photography, and alternate ways still available to make photographs.

If this is the case, they are very quiet about it. Unless they are invested
a successful reception of the camera for whatever reason.

Anyway, this pro shooter was going to buy two. So your statement cannot be
true about all pro M shooters...
