Yes Tina, cameras these days have more problems than ever!!  but leica
service in USA just sucks. any service department is part of the
experience buying or using something and leica usa service sure does
all the wrong stuff.  i have heard numerous stories about bad leica
service and the several occasions I was frustrated like hell using
them. I finally gave up and and deal directly with germnay for about a -5 out of 5 star for service.
