from 1966 to 1998 or so .72 was as good as it got in a regular
non-commemorative leica camera (i.e., M6J), and the f1 noctiliux
came out in 1976, so on that basis, it should be a reasonable
combination in that leica themselves could offer no better.

that being said, i do prefer the .85, and m3, and the 1.25 
magnifiers.  my eyes are not the best (too many years of reading
and using computer monitors) and can use all the 
help they can get.
