35/1.4 lux pre-asph with Hexar RF - focuses well?


I am about to buy Hexar RF in mint condition to use with my 35/1.4 Summilux pre-asph. What is a likelyhood of having focus problems at f/1.4?

many thanks,

Leica M9 silver, Leica M6 Silver 0.85, Noctilux 1.0, Summilux 50/1.4 pre-asph, Summicron C 40/2, Konica Hexar AF, Rolleiflex 2.8 GX Expression, Fuji GA645

if your Hexar RF focuses well with Leica lenses, it will also correctly focus a preasph 35 Summilux.
when brought, my Hexar needed RF adjustment for correctly focus with Leica lenses. It focuses perfectly since then, even with my Summilux 35 preasph.

Have you bought the camera?
I've shot a roll a couple of months ago with the 35 sumilux pre asph (#2899420 year 1978) on the RF Hexar and am quite happy with the shots, did not see anything wrong focuswise.
A most common issue is the rangefinder misalignment, my Hexar RF needs a visit to the local lens technician again, nice to have one near your home ...
