Morning Luggers,

I have been lurking for a couple of years but not posting much. Still 
enjoying all your pictures.

Want to share with you today - a good news / bad news story. My four kids 
got together 
earlier this month and gifted my a Leica M10 (thank you kids!) for my 75th 
It took some hinting but the result was a good one.

After 23 days of happy use the camera sensor developed a fault line - see 


I emailed Wetzlar and they forwarded my email to New Jersey. I sent them 
photos and they
asked me to send in the camera for sensor or connector replacement. I have 
asked for a new
camera rather than waiting weeks / months for repair. Will see what happens.

This is my fifth digital M and I have had some problem with each and every 
unit. I call it
my ?Leica curse?.

I know that many Luggers will respond with their experiences of perfect 
from their digital Leicas but their happy experiences don?t negate the pain 
of my experience.

The M10 was, by the way, quite a lovely camera to use - especially the 
Visoflex EVF which is now
finally of sufficient resolution to be truly useful.
