   I had an M5 but I sold it because it was too delicate. The metering
   mechanism depended on the motion of a fragile little mirror. Other than
   that, it was a fine camera for my needs.

There is no mirror, just a moving arm, and far from beeing fragile.
I like the M5 for several reasons, it's very easy to change the speed,
and you immediatly know the setting, you have an smart computer
on the back etc :)
