Hi Ray,

If you want pretty, yes!

If you want a practical monetary answer, No!   :)

Look at it this way and ask this question. "is the Titanium going to make my
pictures look better?"

Obvious answer,  NO!  Therefore why spend $500.00 on looks, when you would be
better off buying $500.00 worth of film and shooting lots of pictures and doing
something creative with the camera.

That is of course you are a shooter and not a collector. Then it's a whole new
ball game. But there are so many collected Titanium's tucked away on the
pretense that some day one will make a fortune reselling it, that you'll
probably have to live to be a 1000 before you make a buck. :)

Bottom line? Buy the regular M6!  Buy the film! :) Have fun! :) Isn't that why
you take pictures?

Option: Buy regular and put the $500. towards a second lens of choice!
