    Any M with a goggled lens is a seriously heavy camera and not that enjoyable to hang from your neck all day.

    The M2 seems to be very popular. I probably would go a step further and look for an M6.

    Here is another vote for an M2. I shoot mostly with 35 and 50mm lenses. Until recently, I was using a summitar 50/2.0 LTM with an adapter. I now use a Nokton 35/1.4 and a NOkton 50/1.1. The bright line rangefinder is great, I have no problems loading the film. This camera is just great.

    Lot's of good advice here, personally I'd go for the M4 for speed and convenience. But if you are on a budget, you would get a better deal on a good M2.

    They're all heavy but the difference in body weight is negligible. Lenses with goggles are slightly heavier but the only significantly heavier lens is the DR Summicron.
    With that said, the M2,4,4-2 IMO have the best viewfinders. .72 with three or four framelines.
    Cameras with six framelines M4P & newer are very busy. M3 .91 finder I find difficult to see the edges of the 50mm frame but it is slightly easier to focus.
    Heavily sedated for your protection.
