Half case, full case or no case?

I started my M journey using an Arte di Mano half case with battery door. It gave me a way to grip the camera with more assurance than without and helped protect the camera when bumped. It also facilitated an easy removal of battery or SD card. I subsequently discovered that I needed more from a grip so I changed to ADM’s half case with the Aventino Grip.

In my heart, as beautiful as is the ADM workmanship, I love the industrial design of the M camera and over time decided to go without the half case. I added a Match Technical thumb support to help me hold the camera. (I first tried the Leica thumb support but found it uncomfortable to use.) I’m getting up there in years, and my hands are not as steady as they once were. There may be a point in time when I want more protection for the camera and use the ADM.

When I go out I’ll use a small Wotoncraft bag to hold an extra lens and lens wipe. I use a shoulder strap for the camera, too.

Good luck with your evaluation.
