Love the bigger feel of the camera, and that the shutter extends past the edge
of the body
Very sensitive light meter
Uses PX625's - pain in the butt to get
beautifully proportioned for a Noctilux
I like a match needle meter, don't like blinking lights

feels like a traditional Leica
blinking lights annoy me when I use flash
glad that I don't have to worry about crushing the meter with collapsible

I have and like both cameras for different reasons.  Your mileage will vary!
