There is no advantage to M.

I prefer manual (auto ISO off) for most situations when the light isn't changing rapidly. You set the exposure once and don't have to worry about a bright background or whatever fooling the meter like you do in one of the auto modes.

Exp lock/hold does this too.

It would be even better if Nikon did M like Pentax, where you can link the shutter speed and aperture so that if you change one, the other changes automatically to keep the same exposure.

AP mode does this with one press of the exposure lock button if you have the exp button set to lock-hold. Now if you have this button on a D7x00 set for AF on, then you lose that option.
