Bonsoir Art,

  Ahhh, the M5.   Here goes;

1- Speeds visible in the finder
2- Large shutter speeds dial
3- Diaphragm open/close indication in the finder
4- Ratcheted rewind lever
5- Analog continuous metering scale visible in the finder (none of that
bright LED crap)
6- Battery test lever & indication in the finder
7- Spot metering
8- Metering area visible in the finder
9- 3 lugs possibility
10-Typical Leitz (as opposed to Leica) craftsmanship

I guess the M5 still rules.
