the low magnification, cluttered viewfinder of the later M's like the

Compared to an M3, these viewfinders aren't (IMHO) much good for focal
lengths longer than 35.

There is also the question of film.  Do people who shoot mostly slides still
favor the 35?   Not me, too much extraneous content.  W/slides, I'd call
75/80 normal focal lengths.
