do you have the 560 6.8 trombone?  mine is rather rough focusing,
particularly in comparison with the 400.  it seems fine until you
actually hold the palm rest and the lens bears its weight on the
track.  i got it off ebay, seemingly new in the box, maybe 20-30 
years old.  the 560 seems far more front-weighted than the 400, but i 
think it should still be "leica smooth."  i sent it off to
leica northvale, we'll see what they say.
