However, since there is a bit of extra coverage builtin to the frames, especially at infinity, you *may* be able to approximate the 24mm view with the 28mm frames, in the regular M6. Not possible in the HM version, since the 35mm frame goes right to the edge of the field of vision in the HM viewfinder, and it would be difficult to guess what is beyond it. Dan C.
