If your eyes are fine then the 0.72x finder will be fine as well. I 
never had any focusing troubles with my Noctilux. If the rangefinder 
was on the negs were on. The Nocti has a very narrow depth of focus so 
you may have to have the body and lens calibrated.

I liked my Nocti and it is the most flare proof piece of glass I have 
ever used bar none. Regardless, I sold my Nocti because I kept having 
to back up with the 1.0m focus limit. I switched to a Summilux, which 
focuses to 0.7m, and have no problems since.

I bought the Nocti because I am always shooting in low light. If you 
are not then why bother?
