    For me the M2 with a 50mm 1.4 Summilux is the best machine in existance.

    M3 or M2, the classics.

    I own 4 non-metered Ms and use them all regularly: the M2/M3/M4/M4-P. Of these, I'd start with the M4-P because you can obtain them at a price point within your budget and they give you the versatility of all the framelines in the VF from 28 to 135. The earlier brass top models have the more accurate 50mm framelines that the later M6/M7/MP (not MP-3) don't have. The M4-P is a workhorse camera and I have grown to love mine.

    The M3 is the holy grail of the M's. I was originally put off by it not having a meter. But I found it frees you.

    Why? I have a single stroke. It rocks.

    Not an M3 for me, (a) because I like 35mm and (b) I don't like the weird round corners on the 50mm frame on the M3. Nor an M5 because I just don't like it, though i now there are many M5 addicts. On price, M2. On features, MP. Otherwise, whatever comes up at the right price, in good working order.

    You might find http://www.rogerandfrances.com/subsc...icaphilia.html useful, though it also mentions digital (you can always hold your nose and close one eye).

    Cheers,
