Many photographers like the simplicity of the camera.  I personally 
prefer a camera with simple easy to handel features.  I have owned 
many automatic cameras, most recently the EOS 1 line, but have always 
left the camera on manual exposure settings.  When using the EOS some 
of the joy of photography was missing.  I finally bought an M6 and 
realized what I was missing, that feeling of working with photography 
on a personal  level that only a truly manual non gimicky camera can 
give you.

My favorite bodies have always been the more manual configurations, 
the M6, R6, Nikon FM2, F3, Canon F1, and now the R8, but I, 
personally, could live with out the auto modes and just keep the 
flash meter/matrix meter capabilities with the high sync speed/rear 
curtain sync for the flash.
