Leica M5... good choice?

Hi everybody,

For the first time, I'm asking you -super-competent rangefinder freaks ;-)- for advice...

I'm seriously considering buying a Leica M5. I like the look and the features of this camera but I'm still torn between the M5 and the M6.
My main concerns are the cost of the repairs for the M5 and its size.

I found a black 3 lugs one for under $850, 60 days warranty.
Do you think it's a good price? For people who use a M5, what do you think about it as a street shooter?...etc...

I'd love to hear opinions about this camera -btw, I've searched a lot on here and p.net but would like to have "fresh" opinions :-)

Thanks,
Raoul
