    pluto - when you wear glasses your eyeball isn't as close to the viewfinder. The .58x viewfinder has a lot of space around the framelines, more space around the 28 and the 35mm framelines (the frameline box is essentially smaller) so those with glasses can actually see the frameline. When you have glasses and say the .85x viewfinder, the 28 isn't there and the 35mm is much closer to the edge, with glasses, you wouldn't be able to see the 35mm frameline at all.

    I have the M2, M3 DS and SS, M4, M4P, M6, and M6TTL. Overall, the best all around is the M4. The quality of materials and parts in the M4 is better than the later cameras. Compared to the earlier cameras, it is has 35mm frame lines, and it doesn't require a film take up spool. I have played with an MP, but it isn't as well made as the M4 and earlier cameras, while costing several times as much.

    So the M4 has frame lines for 35, 50, & 90?

    I have personal fetish for the knob rewind of the M2, and have had the good fortune to get 2 of them that have the QuickLoad spool kit. That is my absolute favorite setup. If all of the M2s in the world went away, M4 would be the next logical choice. I agree that all later cameras lost something. The RFs aren't as snappy and the tulip spool is trickier than the Quickload.

    I too like the M5 but one needs to realize that it is as far from the original Leica concept as any model it can get as it is huge by Leica standards. They must be finding a following as the prices on them are rising somewhat faster than others from what I've noticed.

    -Better late than never, so here goes - yes, it has (35/135), 50 and 90mm framelines. If they'd used the same layout as on the M2 (And done away with the 135mm framelines), there wouldn't be anything left to improve on the M4, IMHO.
