I find it extremely accurate. (Or maybe I'm just well practiced?)

M6 TTL and M6 TTL HM - on/of switch on shutter speed dial, which is bigger
and easier to move.

Tom A's attachment. Very nice I hear.

Over/under exposure down to 1/2 stop. And now a red dot for right on. What
more do you need? Like frame number? Aperture? That would be nice.

>7. The weirdest loading of any camera I've ever owned 

I find it fast and reliable. Just takes practice.
