Subject: [Leica] M8 Shutter Fault, Help!

Hi, guys.  Thanks for all of the advice.  After carefully looking at 
the inside of the M8 and surveying everything I could use for a tool 
here, I decided not to take any chances.  I just went and bought some 
more film and have been using my M7.  The M8 is packed in my backpack 
and will be shipped back to Leica when I get home.  I do have 15,000 
digital photos to edit, most of them made with the M8 so maybe the 
shutter just wore out!!

In five weeks in India, I haven't been sick at all but I must have 
been too lax about eating street food because I'm sick now!  Just in 
time for the 16 hour flight back home.  I've taken all of the 
appropriate medicines and hope they kick in before the flight at 1 
AM.  In the meantime, I have 6 more rolls of film to use up.  I hope 
all of the photos aren't of various bathrooms in Mumbai!!
