Subject: Re: [Leica] Anybody use the 75 summilux on a .72x M6?

Dan, I used the 75/1,4 for 15 years on M4-P's and M6's. It is not a big 
problem but avoid putting it on a 0,85 or a M3 as you immediately will start 
lusting for one! At the moment I have been using it on a M3 with Voigtlander 
75 mm bright-line finder. It is a great lens, but beware of focussing 
wide-open. Occasionally you have to have the camera/lens combo optimised for 
close range focus (usually in the 6-10 feet range). It can throw the focus 
and be 2-3" off - and at 1,4 you will see it.
