First I have to ask, do you really have  the MP-4 (Leica MP, number 4)? 
That would be one hell of a rare and valuable camera. You could sell it 
and get a bunch of M6s. Perhaps you have a M4-P?

Instead of getting an 0.85x why not get the 0.72x and a 1.25x magnifier. 
That way you have the best of both worlds. A 28 frame and, with the 
magnifier mounted, an even higher magnification than the 0.85x when you 
use long lenses.
