Subject: [Leica] New M-6 Owner

After years of wanting a Leica M, I finally handed over 3000.00 (US
Dollars) and bought a new M-6 with a new 35 mm/f2 ASPH Summicron lens.
Being an SLR user, it's taking a little time getting use to the
rangefinder. I don't know what it is, but the M-6 is such a pleasure to
use. I have a few questions regarding the M-6:

How accurate is the meter? Is there any tips or advice when using the
built in metering system?

Is black and white preferred over color transparencies with the M-6?

Anyone have any technical info on Burk Uzzle, a well known leica
photographer in the US? 

Thanks in advance!
