Great reply. I am falling in love with this camera.

And the Leica lenses are just yummy.

Any way to only press once and get into focus magnification?

No. But again, double-clicking is something you get used to pretty quickly, and having the reminder to move the focus box can lead to better focus since it makes it a little bit easier to do it right, rather than center focus-and-recompose which can be insufficient when DOF is very shallow.
