I used to have a Mamiya 6 with all three lenses. I carried it in a Domke F3x, which worked great. Still miss that camera some days.

If you have any intention of carrying the camera around I would go for the M. All of your lenses will work and the images are superb. I have and M8 and the M9 images are significantly better.
