Subject: [Leica] M8 craps out

24 hours into vacation on Ocracoke Island my M8 shutter crapped out

just over a year since it returned from a $400+ CLA from Leica

Looked inside and found the shutter blades piled up, one bulging toward lens

was hoping to see an m9 price drop and maybe grab one in the next few 
months, but this sure changes the timing concerns

anyone know shutter replacement cost?
