TTL metering is nice, but someone reminded me that I hardly ever use it anyway. :P The M2 is the perfect marriage of affordability and ruggedness that I want in a camera. Like the P, this will be a user camera that will see plenty of abuse most likely...I use my cameras hard. It's very important that they be very durable.
That said, I'm probably not getting *anything* any time soon. This is just something I'm toying around with.
