An interesting question and I'm sure you will get many opinions on it. My
M6 (1990) has failed twice internally (film counter, meter) and had a
repair resulting from a drop (bent rewind crank) It was repaired all three
times by Sherry, who does excellent work at fair prices.

Interestingly, my M4 has never needed any service.
