Are you shooting mostly digital now?  I find myself going back and forth 
between my M6 and my Nikon D70.  In fact, I'm thinking of selling one of 
my four M lenses (35mm Summicron ASPH) to finance a nice prime or fast 
focusing zoom for my D70 so I can shoot pics of my son playing soccer or 
the cars at an F1 race.
