The 28mm f:2 ASPH is one.A true marvel. Of course the Noctilux is another
one but has a rather limited use. The 90mm f:2 ASPH is another winner and
the 21mm f:2.8 ASPH is another excellent and unsurpassed lens. Owning a M6
your money will have a better use on this kind lenses than on a new body who
does not really add too much to the old one. Just my opinion.



PS I have preferred to buy a M7 to the MP, keeping my M6, as flare was not
disturbing me too much.
