    M for me...

    you still can get the camera's metering with M mode, just gotta get used to reading the bar below lor, and your fingers reacting automatically in the right direction to adjust.

    Most of the time Manual Mode. But for fast candid shot i'll switch to P mode.

    However, that's only part of the deal ... you gotta think about metering (spot, center-weighted, matrix), exposure (compensate or not)... Therefore, if the camera's CPU can take the load off, why not?
    i concur. i like P mode for how it balances aperture and shutter speed for me: not too slow or too small an aperture that it causes handshake/motion blur.

    when i do shoot in low light conditions, i sometimes use shutter priority to get enough hand-holdability.

    i always use A mode with matrix metering , i prefer the large DOF feeling as to bring out the target with lower f stop.

    Aperture most of the time, when I've got time to adjust and plan my shots, M for the win.
