    "a classic M3 (double stroke, of course)"

    The definition of a classic M3 is single stroke of course...

    It depends on what you need the camera to do.
    Frame lines => What focal length lenses do you intend to use?
    Meter => Do you need one one the camera?

    Other than that - they're all really excellent cameras. Get a decent one, and have it CLAd, and you'll have a camera to last you a good long time.

    no it's not, it's double.

    unless of course, "classic" has come to mean "the newer version"

    They're all magical TM. They will eliminate improper exposures,give sharpness beyond the theoretical limits of optics, render all compositions perfect, cure warts, impotence, and hangovers, etc.
    God I am fed up with the Leica "mystique".

    That said, I'd love another M3. Or another IIIg. But I'd go for another double stroke M3, with a Summicron. You may want to look into the M4 series, they are later than the 3.

    Nope. Some don't even consider the single-stroke a real M3. I had two double stroke M3s, to this day, I double-stroke my Nikon F and Nikkormat, it got that firmly planted in my muscle memory.

    Wow, both at the same time?
    Stop worrying about grain, resolution, sharpness, and everything else that doesn't have a damn thing to do with substance.

    Buy the first one you can lay your hands on. Now, Today!

    It will not matter what model you buy because you will become infected with the Leica Zombie Virus and it will take over your entire mental ability to say NO. You will compelled to horde Leica after Leica from LTM to M's without meters to M's with meters.

    Then wondering the streets as a full fledged Leica Zombie chewing on human flesh while documenting it on an M9.

    There is no cure.

    I would go for a M4 or M2, but it doesn't really matter.
