Magnification of the finder and separation of the viewfinder with RF window has everything to do with focus accuracy of a rangefinder camera. If you do not understand that basic principle, you know nothing about rangefinder cameras.

The lens you referenced is the Canon 50mm f/0.95 on the Canon 7 with film. Many lenses designed post digital era do not perform that well on a RF camera. If you buy any converted Canon 50mm f/0.95 lens that are coupled in M mount and put it on a digital M8 or M9 you will notice there is noticeable focus shift. There requirement for focus accuracy is much lens on film compared to the CCD of the M9. This fact does not change regardless of the magnification.

Are you using the Canon 50mm f/0.95 on the Canon 7 with film, on a M film camera, or on a M8/M9 body? As we are discussing about the use of 0.95 lenses on the M8/M9 it is only relevant to discuss about the performance of a lens on the same medium.
