For some users who are most closely wedded to the
Wetzlar M cameras, the change in frame size is

However, on balance, I have to agree with Henning
because I feel strongly  that Leica M cameras are
ideally suited to close-range wide angle work, not
photos taken at or near infinity. And as he's pointed
out, with the 90 and 135 frames, there's no change.

I've never had a problem with the frame size change.
