That's my fantasy, too, but for the M6 (the dotted line frame just doesn't do it for me, and I'm too used to the built-in meter to give it up).  

The calibration issue is odd.  I'll be interested to test my new 75 with my six month old M6 and see how it fares at .75 m.  My 50 at f2 and .7 m has been spot on--but that provides a generous 2.2 cm DOF, compared to only 7.6 mm for the 75, f1.4, at .75 m!
