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.

You didn't include the full quote, which said that you needed the EVF for critical focusing.

And, not surprisingly, DPreview's fresh review of the M11 draws the same conclusion as my initial posting here in this discussion thread:

"But that extra resolution brings up a longstanding issue with the digital M-series: there is a limit to the accuracy you can hope to achieve with a mechanically coupled rangefinder focusing mechanism, and the more pixels you put behind the lens, the more obvious this becomes."
