I have read some messages about focus problems with the new 75/1.4 and the
HM, people sent the lens back to Leica thinking it was the lens. I am not
sure if the problem has something to do with film flatness (the other lenses
will show the same problem, a question here : do you have another f/ 1.4 to
try ?), it  may be related to  the rangefinder and the 75/1.4 mechanical
link (just an idea), that lens has a very little deep of field.
