Out of all the cameras out there I have found that Leica M is the best for me and that the type of work I do and that includes fast paced candid work and my personal work is street.
My AF Nikons have no scales.
M lenses with fast focus helical have a scale so "squished" as to be not usable. But my 75 2.0 APO
is a favorite anyway scale is 3mm each side.

Depth of field is an illusion anyway because I can certainly tell the focus plane from that which is supposed to be in focus.
