Subject: RE: [Leica] Difference between M3 and M6TTL .85 viewfinder sizes?

Ray, the M3 didn't have to have a viewfinder big enough to cover the view of a 28 mm lens, as the M6 does. I have found the full viewfinder of my M3 to be roughly equivalent to a 35 mm lens, right out to the edge of the viewfinder, when I compare it using a 35 mm brightline finder.
