M6TTL is the wrong size and my guess is that chances are overwhelming you 
don't need TTL.

I have to disagree Seth.  I have both a M4-P and the M6TTL and my hands 
tell the difference.  Now if only the M4-P had a built in meter.  As to the 
TTL, I don't use flash very often, but when it is needed, the TTL feature is 
priceless, and works like a charm with the SF-24D flash.  At -1/3 to -2/3 
reduction I get near natural lighting effects.

Buy the M6TTL, for the small price difference you will be far better off.  
And the larger, properly rotating shutter dial is a huge improvement over 
tiny hard to get a hold of shutter dial of the earlier cameras.
