This is not a complaint just an observation, all black painted cameras have this problem it happened with my black OM film cameras, my M9 has just a little on a couple of corners, I have never treated cameras with kid gloves although some of the cheaper plastic end DSLRs I have owned I have been careful with, when out and about my cameras are never in a case, I usually go out with just my M9 with a 35mm on the front, it’s a constant companion unless I need my Olympus E30 with a zoom, after all Leica's are not designed to be handled like a precious object, they are a working tool made for the rough and tumble of a professional life to the full.

No problems here, how old is your camera?

Same here, no problems. My question would be how old is your camera? I have a old film camera my father passed on to me and that one doesn't have any wear like that also.

Well, this camera has been used almost daily for the past several years.
