I was thinking the same thing, and had considered suggesting a lower mag. VF
M6 back when I was one of the (make-believe) chair of the Leica board on
this list a few weeks ago.  But then I wondered about the effective base
length of the rangefinder on such a model--would that make it less
appealing?  It would surely be more convenient than having to use an
accessory finder, though.

945 unread LUG messages to go to catch up <sigh>)
