Sorry to hear that.
I only had an issue with a 120 lens, where the autofocus did not work at all (i.e., the autofocus did not react at all when the shutter was pressed). My dealer contacted Leica which within a couple of days shipped a new lens to me while mine was still on the way back to the dealer. Otherwise no issues (fingers crossed).
Good luck with your letter (I think if I had written it the language would have been much harsher).

Happy New Year to all of you. Currently from Sabi Sand in South Africa. Below a few shots from a 5.30 am game drive on New Years morning. Quick processing on a laptop.

All–A belated thank you for the helpful advice I received. Not everything went as planned but I got many good shots and the couple was very happy with the results. In particular, I go a group shot of the 50+ guests with the sun coming from front right (so not ideal). It looked ok on the screen, but was quite spectacular when printed 60×25 cm. I did the print in the time between the late lunch and the evening reception and folks were quite impressed :D. It demonstrated that where the S2 really shines is when you print the files.
Merry Christmas to all of you!

First of all, a big THANK YOU for the very helpful advice and your time. I very much appreciate that.
I have played around with the S2 and the SF58 this weekend, using David's advice of manual setting, and was quite pleased with the results. Will try next weekend with even lower shutter speeds. Also, I am about to order the Garry Feng diffuser and this should improve matters even further. So I am planning to use the S2 as my prime camera (shooting will be mostly indoors–the weather in Brussels in early December is unlikely inviting for outdoor shooting). I am using the system nor since February and feel reasonable comfortable, but will keep things simple.
I will also take the M9 with a 50 lux and a 35 or 28 cron, as these lenses for me produces the best comprise between speed and focusing. I probably leave at home the 75 lux or the 50 f1, as I am likely to miss too many shots–less than perfect eyesight and bad light do not go together well. (OTOH, some shots may look good even if a bit soft).
The main objective of the shooting will be to capture a few shots of the ceremony, and then candids during reception, lunch, and the party, something I feel quite comfortable shooting. And I am not the only shooter anyway.
As regards razor sharpness, the good thing is that this time the bride wears a beard :D.
Again, many thanks for the helpful advice!

Bravo! Some of the best landscape S2 shots I have seen, and some of the best from Death Valley and Mono lake in quite a while. Keep them coming!

Hear! Hear! Unfortunately, I do not have enough time these days to make enough of my camera.
I still remember the PM you sent me about a year ago on GETDpi, saying that you were looking into the system and encouraging me to not be discouraged by the pushing of the alternative brands and the then S2 bashing. One of the factors that we discussed was the user friendliness of the system and that you can take it with you everywhere. How true that turned out to be!

I have mine insured in Germany but that person does not offer for the UK. I found the insurance after I googled camera insurance. There are several insurance companies that offer special camera equipment insurance for items that are much more expensive than a S2 (Yes those do exist!).

Saw no need for the S2P. Got an S2 with a special protection for the LCD screen. The difference in price is almost a lens.

How about that for a first post. I am willing to sell mine for $99,999.99.:D
