Leicas have two "Exposure Compensation Dials": one is the aperture ring on the lens; the other is the shutter speed dial on the top deck.

Facepalm. Do you understand that with aperture priority and exp.comp. you can set the camera for the shot by glancing down at the top plate, such that when the moment comes you simply bring the camera up to the eye, frame and shoot in a fraction of a second? And in doing so you have FULL creative control over the camera.
