For shooting theatrical productions, where silence is a virtue, an M6 on a monopod or
tripod is just the ticket.  I have small RRS plates attached to the tripod sockets on
my 90/2 and 135/2.8 lenses, and have made exposures as slow as 1/4 second with good
results.  I would not have been allowed in the theater with a Nikon or Hasselblad.  So
there are applications where an M6 on a 'pod is appropriate.
