LeicaForEver: I suggest you step back and objectively determine if the 1 x 1.5 aspect ratio (35mm full frame) is absolutely essential to you. It is no more than an arbitrary ratio determined by 35mm camera manufacturers. Just don't believe the voices on the internet insisting you must use the entire frame. If that is what works best for you, fine then use it. But you can use other aspect ratios as well.

Personally, the 4x5 aspect ratio (8x10) usually works best for me. That is not driven by paper size but by what I believe looks best with my photos. Others differ. But I am not bothered in the least to crop off the ends of a 35mm negative or the top and bottom of a 6x6 negative.

Realize you have choices.
