Why using M-Mode is best

Had a little discussion with some friends, why to use the M-mode for propper exposure. Some guys took up the position, using the A-mode and - if required - the exposure correction would come to the same results and would be easier. Correct? Myself, I use the M-mode since many years and feel fine with it because I think it´s quicker and more precise. Is there any right or wrong?

I choose aperture mode and if need than go to Manuel mode.

I do not see advantage of M mode in the picture quality, but its far better to improve yourself.

In M mode you are doing the A or S mode settings in your head, and in time it gives you faster esponses and quick decisions while taking photos

Actually, when I started out, I practically shot exclusively in M-mode. So, I had to have quick reflexes depending on what I was shooting at the time. It quickly became second nature to me, as even in in sports, I could get the perfect exposure I'd want.

But recently, I've been shooting A-mode. For almost all situations, I shoot in A-mode, except in some sports where I try to freeze the player, that's when I go S-mode.

Nowadays, I use M-mode when I have more time with my models. Have much more time to compose, and recompose.

Also for exposure, as greg stated on his exposure videos, you can lower down your camera as if taking picture of the floor and take the exposure using the AE lock.

for me from the menu I changed the function of the AE/AF button to be only AE lock.

Yeah. That´s what I did with the AE/AF-button. And I agree, this quick tipp was really a good one again.
