Ralph & Helen, it's so great to hear from you. The M6 would be great although I do like to shoot sometimes on Aperture Priority, which is where the M7 comes in. But, I guess the Nikon FM3A would also do good job and be cheaper as I can use my existing Nikon lenses. I do have an issue though with being 'left-eyed' so that the lever knocks me in the head. Just a minor handicap. It's always nice to read these threads. Jim, I'm sooo sorry for the hijack. I'll call it off here. I can't wait to see more of your posts.
