Subject: [Leica] M6 improvements?

     Has anyone any suggestions on how to make an M6 easier to use in 
     'portrait' format? This is one handling area where I find the M6 is 
     not even close to perfect.  If I hold it with the viewfinder at the 
     top I find myself using my thumb to fire the shutter as my wrist is 
     not designed like a Stroboframe.  Holding it with the viewfinder at 
     the bottom and my fist gets in the way of focussing.  The only 
     solution seems to be to focus in 'landscape' format, then turn the 
     camera to shoot. Not very satisfactory.
