  I am in favor of the M5 too.  Lots of Leica users (collectors) blame the M5 for its size.  In my book, the M5 is very ingenious and a true Leica in every respect.  I love it.  I have heard that the M5 below 1.3 mil of serial number has some discrepancy though.  You might want to look for one with 1.3 mil or higher in serial number.

Subject: [Leica] M5 or M6

I use an M3 and a Leicaflex SL. I really like the convenience of a built in
meter. I was thinking of an M6 but am told that the M5 meter is more
sensitive and a better made camera than both the M6 and the M7 and better
than any other M cameras that will be made in the future.

I welcome users of both M5's and M6  to comment to assist me in my choice.
