Sounds like some "hard luck Harrys" out there! But then maybe I am only lucky, but the three "P"'s I purchaced on the web ALL have good patches. All are from a widely different part of the Canon P production runs. All work well with no issues. A rarely used working meter is kepted cased as if a meter is needed I reach for the Bessa R. All are an "easy"load but sometimes I like to slow things down and thats when I reach for the Canon III or my Canon IIF-the "PX camera" as the Dechert book discribes it. Having a bottom loader or two is, I think, a fun way to make a "walking" tour more "thoughtful". I use the Canon, Leica, Nikon, Minolta, and the less expencive Juipter lenses in LTM. Like them all.
