Don't know about the m6, but the 40mm works very well with the M3.
Just two cautions:
(1) The 40mm isn't really midway between the 35 and the 50. It's actually
much closer to the 35.
(2) Use the 35mm frame lines (via the selection lever) to train yourself
about the actual framing of the 40. (The 35 frame lines are much more
accurate for the 40 than the 50mm frames).
