I am surprised it has not been mentioned. Even though it is no longer made, it is still available new and it is a worthy companion to my 16 year-old M6. The only significant differences are the viewfinder (the Ikon's is slightly better), the electronic shutter on the ZM is more accurate (but I prefer the Leica's quiet mechanical shutter) and film loading is a little easier with the ZM.
