I've used an M4 for years for IR, and since I find I can load an M4-6 
more reliably than any other kind of camera, including the Nikons and 
Canons I also use, I find the M4 ideal.

To use an SLR reasonably with IR, especially HIE, you really have to 
mount the filter between the rails. It works quite well, but 
obviously there are other concerns.
