Actually, the M6 is a highly prized camera among press photographers. Many
don't have them, but wish they did. This TTL should make it a more
practical camera for them. Just because it's strength is in available light
doesn't mean it can go elsewhere. 

As for a comment about needing flash for newspaper reproduction. It's quite
true in most places, but some of us are lucky enough to work at places with
great repro. that lets the quality of  light shine through.

Be nice to people on your way up because you'll need them on your way down.
