Specs sound a lot like my Nikon 35Ti -- now discontinued. Same size, 1/2 
stop lens difference, solid titanium. Why could they not make the M6 
titanium that way I still do not know -- it would be a lot lighter (yes, 
I have read all the stuff in the archives - I still want a real solid 
titanium M6 to go with my titanium Breitling watch.)
