It's not the weight that will get you.  Either your brain can process the
large corner of the image that is blocked by the lens or it can't.  If not
seeing all the viewfinder bothers you then you need a 50 lux or the new 90.
If on the other hand, you can process information what you can't see, the 75
is a fabulous lens at any aperture, sharper than a Noctilux wide open and a
stunning OOF look.  Or, for those that don't look at the OOF, a really
non-distracting frame for what is in focus.

Next to my 35 the 75 is my most used lens on the M.
