I have 2 Leica M6 bodies with a 35/ 50 and 75mm lenses. At 61 years of age I now find rangefinder cameras easier to use. For the past 30 years I have had various Nikon F SLRs which were really fine. I would have bought a Nikon S but I decided to jump ship. I have not been dissapointed The most important attribute in a camera for me if freedom from batteries and electronics. M6's work fine if the battery fails or is effected by low temperatures

Favorite cameras. Olympus OM1n & Om2n. Also my F100. Maybe the F100 is first. I don't know. I'll add my new (used) Shen Hao 4x5 to the list if I can ever figure out how to best use the movements. Could be a short lived love affair.
