Dear Erik, the article does indeed cover this point too.

It’s all a bit of mischief, but I’ve long held that the M2 is superior. I once held an M3 and also looked through the VF. Rounded corners of the 50mm frame lines? I was shocked, and quickly put it down. And see my avatar. The ancient astrolabe inspired frame counter is wonderful, tactile, simple.
