I would have preferred to see a 24MP sensor - then with less noise - in such a camera. Otherwise, you will really need an add-on electronic viewfinder (with 1:1 magnification focus assist) and, realistically, a tripod, to make proper use of the camera's resolution.

(And before you criticize me, please consider that any picture taken with this camera that isn't tack sharp at 1:1 pixel magnification will effectively not have 60MP optical resolution, but could just as well have been taken with a lower-resolution sensor.)

- Oh yeah, I watched Kai Wong's prematurely leaked video on the M11. That's why I know that the camera has 60MP.

How come we were able to focus reliably with 41MP (M10-R), but not with 60MP? It is only 21% more in linear dimension.

There was a reason why the M10 was Leica's first rangefinder camera for which you could buy an accessory EVF (the Visoflex Typ 020).

DPreview, too, needed the EVF for critical focus with the M10-R:

The written review stated this as well:

The article says: it's not too hard to get focus where you want it, in most situations – despite the higher pixel count.

Focusing wide open may require using live view when shooting with Noctis, but body motion may be an even bigger issue. Peter Karbe suggests shooting a series in that cases.
