Roland, in one word: don't. If you have been on this list for very long you 
will know the complaints about flaring (white-out) of the M6 viewfinder. No 
one to my knowledge has made that complaint about the M2 viewfinder. I have 
just received back from Leica my M6 with the upgraded view/rangefinder and 
it is not an  inexpensive modification.
