The answer is yes, but then one has to define "reasonably." Over several
years I've become comfortable using the M3 viewfinder for 35mm, but
initially it was hit or miss. I think it's a matter of training yourself to
do the slightest sweep of the body to know what you'll get.

On the other hand, if framing is critical, I use the M6.///Dick Baznik
