    Quandary (Leica M5 vs M6)

    I'm in a quandary ladies and gentlemen. I have purchased two Leica cameras an M6 in mint condition and a M5 in excellent condition with a few spots on the curtain. I love the M6 but also like some features of the M5 - a shutter timer, shutter speed displayed in the viewfinder, quieter shutter, shutter dial easier to use, iso easier to use and film counter because it is black easier to see. Here are two audio graphs fo the shutters of the two and the db readings. Help me choose which one to keep.

    Never mind the audio graphs for the shutters, go out and take some pictures with them.

    Good point, but let's assume that both work fine.

    what I hear

    I hear the M6 is the real deal and the M5 is a chubby little bear with several problems the M6 does not have.

    Do you mean "Quandary"?

    Why not in that thread?

    And a pet peeve - why not give us a clue about the subject of your thread in your title?

    Pet peeve over.
