I've been told that the M3 makes a great body for a noctilux wide open. Is the cool thing about the M3 (w/out the redesign discussed above) that it has a higher mag viewfinder than the M6, that it has a longer viewfinder baseline than the M6, or both. If it's just a magnification thing, I'd be just as happy to hear the story you wrote above, but on an M6. Then I'd have a meter in the body and everything. If there's a longer baseline AND higher mag on the M3, then focusing would be even more accurate. g.
