Read the article. Meh! To each their own.
Out of the three Leicas that I still own my 1932 Leica II is my go to camera. With a 50 Elmar the Model II is essentially a compact 35 mm that takes almost no space in my messenger bag and is lighter than my M2, which I'll usually use with a 50 Summicron.
For many years, I had both an early production M3 and the M2. The M3, in my opinion, has a superior build.
