<< Over the years, there have been numerous isolated complaints on the LUG about new Leica equipment arriving with serious problems. These threads come and go, usually with someone chiming in to smooth over the disgruntled users. >> Charlie, my experience has been a mixed bag. Ultimately, however, I pleased with the quality. Of four M6's, three had cosmetic defects and were replaced. Two had scratches in the inside of the front viewfinder element. One had a defective black body paint. Of 18 lenses, four were defective and replaced. One would not focus correctly at infinity (the focus cam was not machined properly). Three had scratches or nicks in the barrels. All of the replacements were fine.
