Nice to here from you, the M7 i was also looking at but a bit to much to money for my budget.I am also using a canon Digital system as well, quite like the Canon lenses. Starting to get the hang of the M6, lots of different quirky things with the M6, smaller viewfinder,bit slower focusing(for me at present)etc,etc. Ran a roll of film through on the weekend and held my breath while they were being developed. Exspected a few out of focus shots as i was a bit unsure of the rangefinder focusing, but actually to my amazement every one was spot on. Much more accurate than using manual focus slr's i think. Like the size of the M cameras and lenses, makes a change from the amount of gear i usualy carry about. Cheers!
