I've used both the RF-Summaron and the RF-Summicron on my M3.   The eyes do
present some distortion.   I finally sold my RF-Summicron and bought a new
35 Summicron.  Unless or until I get another camera body, I've been using a
method a LUGger suggested.   I put a piece of black electricians tape over
the center frame window.   This blanks out all the frames in the viewfinder
and I simply use the outer edges of the window for framing.   It seems to
work fine.

Now if only I could come up with a way to use a 75 Summilux on an M3...
