"It should be pointed out that this is for the six frameline finders. The
other finders have the framelines covering a slightly larger area. So on my
TTL 0.72 with the 1.25x magnifier mount I too can easily see the 35mm
framelines. However on my M2 with the 1.25x magnifier mounted I cannot quite
see all of the 35mm framelines at one glance. Leica shrunk the 35/50/90/135
framelines to squeeze in the 28mm framelines."

That's strange, because with the 1.25x on my M4-2 I can see the 35mm lines.
When did they shrink? It's accademic, of course, because with a 35mm lens on
a .72 body you'd take the 1.25x off (at least I do).

However I do think that anyone who's seriously interested in one of these
should try to test one for themselves.
