Hi Phil,

I wouldn't say the M6 is better than the M3.  I would say that, after
using an M3 for a couple of years, then moving to an M4-P and then an
M6, that the M4 platform was quicker for me to load and rewind.
Having an internal meter on the M6 makes it faster-handling for me
than the M4-P.  And although the frame lines can be distracting, you
can use a wider range of focal lengths on an M6 with less guessing as
to the framing.

Faster-handling, more convenient.  But obviously not everybody feels
that way.......
