Instead of waiting and watching package tracking reports to the repair
people or Leica on your M8 just get an M9 and shoot with it. They spend much
less time in the mail.  They seem to give people nothing to complain about.
A camera in hand is worth two in the UPS and FedEx and USPS.
Make that three.
