I am a Pentax guy (Spotmatic) that bought a Leica M6TTL new sometime in 98 or 99. Since then the Spotmatic has left (worn out after decades of use) but the Leica still is here. Would I buy it again over another 35mm, maybe, but I would not lose any sleep over it if I did not have it. My favorite camera is my very old Rollei 35 with Sonnar 40mm-f2.8, equal to image quality of my M6 with Summicron 50mm-f2.0.
