I just purchased an M7 and not having had one before, am curious if the On Off switch looseness is common to M7.

The switch operates correctly and engages the contact points firmly, it is just that there seems to be a bit of play as if a washer or spacer is missing.

Thank you

The On/Off switch of my M7 is without any play or wobble ... how about the film advance lever ?

The film advance lever is secure as well as the retaining washer.

There is no play in either of my M7s.

Contacted Don Goldberg (DAG) whose opinion I have learned over the years to value greatly. It seems that these is a switch retaining screw than on the very rare occasion, can become loose and thus the wobbly switch. Accordingly, I plan on getting it adjusted. Thanks to those who responded.
