Erwin Puts calculated the theoretical maximum f/stop at which accurate focusing could be possible on the M6 quite a few months ago. I do not have the email saved, but I do remember that at 50mm the normal M6 rangefinder is accurate enough for an f/.85 lens or something of that sort. At least at 50mm, you are quite within the capabilities of the regular M6 with a Noctilux.
