After 6 years with my M6, I bought a 2nd body, an M2 because of the self
timer,(yes I know, a VERY expensive self timer) I use them mostly for
landscape, and mostly use an incident meter, and what do you know! after 12
months I mostly use the M2. I can't comment on the M3 or 4 but the M2 is
just wonderful
