I think that looking at some of the features of the Mamyia 7 would be very
good. They have a better viewfinder than the M-6 and aperture priority.

I agree with the TTL flash idea also, although I consider myself a
traditionalist. I only carry one camera and there are situtations when I am
more concerned about documenting some event rather than the aesthetics of
the photograph.

The M-6 could use a self timer. A accessory self-timer would be OK. However,
I have not found a satisfactory one yet.
