Yep. I used a Leitaxed Summilux 50r on my F6.
To be honest the usability factor was not so great as you lose auto aperture stop down and so all metering is manual stop down.
Much better to get a Leica body like an R-E for under $200 and use that instead of buying the Leitax mounts, doing the surgery etc. Unless you also want to use it on a DSLR as well as F6.
Results are great though.
