Unless you are shooting in light that allows photography at f 1.4 or 
smaller aperatures; unless you want anything vaguely like normal bokeh; 
unless you want a 50 without vingetting; unless you want a lens that 
won't cause you back problems; and unless you want a 50 that doesn't 
cause cataracts of the viewfinder.

BUT, if you are always shooting in virtually no light, and absolutely 
must get the shot, THEN you will never want to remove the Noctilux from 
you M6.
