If the magnified live view it that good......so you can actual use it.
I only know it from the Coolpix 6000 and here it is useless.

Don't think you need mirror lock up for the 6/2.8:

....but it is very expensive.... USD 100.000?

The 8/2.8 is probably a better choice and easier to get into the field. The 6/2.8 is about 5 kg.

With all the exotic lenses like Leice 50/1.0 you could probably get a M9 also? .....but still you find the quality of the 5xxx series satisfying?

I can't think of other real exotic lenses I have.......but many of the very good like 105/2.5, 85/1.4 etc.....maybe the nikkor-P 105/4 bellows as not many were produced. I sold the 15/3.5 because it "flared" very easy.
