i bought 8mm outer, 5mm inner at 1.5 thickness. Tight fit, but works perfectly.

I'm glad my suggested DIY is a help. Leica engineers should have spent more time on the flawed On/Off switch instead of wasting time on nonsense like Nikki Sixx and Kravitz edition leicas.

Thank you. Extremely well said. Are you listening Leica?

Completely different development teams on the Q vs the M. Wouldn't change a thing. Leica is not a "six guys in the garage" company. :D

Not to be argumentative but the "Nikki Sixx" is a Q model. My broader point was less emphasis on Leica being a "fashion accessory" and more of a pro/enthusiasts camera.

I’ve never bought a Leica as a fashion accessory. I’ve always bought them to make photographs with, both for my private and professional needs. 

For me, they are just good cameras that I like. I like other good cameras too. I have no problem seeing them make specials for those that want them. I still don’t think the design of specials impacts the standard production in any significant way.

Doesn't work on the original Q. There is no gap between the switch and top plate.

Still experimenting!

Honestly. Works for me.
