Pros:  Allows carrying an extra lens (2 for the Benser Plate) without needing a gadget bag
Cons:  Very expensive. Makes camera uncomfortably heavy
Would recommend:  no

I had a Benser Plate on my M3 a hundred years ago. It was a cute idea and I bought it without much thought (I was a hundred years younger then). The plate had 2 M mounts attached to the bottom so you removed the rear caps of 2 lenses and mounted them dangling from the bottom of the plate. Almost as good as a 3 lens turret. I walked around with 35/2 and 90/2 Summacrons dangling from the camera with a 50/2 Summacron mounted. After about 5 weeks my head fell off. Other problems: Let's say you've got the 90 mounted and want to use the 35. Grab the camera with your left hand, remove the 90 with the right, and --. Oh well, shove the 90 in your mouth, remove the 35 from the plate, and -- whoops, your teeth just flew across the room. You get the idea. The Leica Lens Carrier M, unlike the Benser Plate, limits you to one extra lens, not two; however, everything else is essentially the same. Suggestion: Save some big bucks, get a Domke vest, and keep your head.
