I regularly shoot pictures with a Hexar and 35 Summilux wide open. 
This combination should not work if there is any significant 
discrepancy. There is no discrepancy, and the pictures focus at the 
same plane as when the lens is used on my M's. 400+ rolls through the 
Hexar confirm this.

1.1mm flange/focal plane difference??? No way.
