Hi all, I'm looking for some first-hand information on universal finders for M240. I'm wearing glasses, unfortunately, so it's difficult for me to see frame's edges in RF viewfinders: eye relief is critically important to me. Alternatives are: - Voigtlander Zoom Finder 15-35 (discontinued but still in stock somewhere, I think) - Leica 21/24/28 (..I've read bad reviews of this...) - Leica 16-28 aka "Frankenfinder" - any other? Could someone kindly tell me something about these finders? Actually I'm using Leica plastic single-focal finders (and old metal ones), and eye relief is (barely) enough for me. Do Zeiss finders have more? Thank you in advance S.
I wear glasses (and need them on all the time) and find manual focus frustrating. I am slow and never confident that I have my shots perfectly focused. Are there any aids to focusing for the M8, such as different focusing screens or magnifiers to highlight the split image? I use my M8 for travel and street photography.
I effectively ruined my hideously expensive multifocal eyeglasses with LTM-photography (Leica II & III, FED & Zorki) . A little too late, I started experimenting with various washers etc but found that most items increase the viewing distance and lead to incomplete viewfinder / rangefinder coverage, which is restricted enough with eyeglasses on classic LTMs anyway. There may be some professional solutions around, but I have come up with a low cost, dispensable item, which may not be perfect on aesthetic grounds, but works very well in the field for me. I did not bother with geometric perfection . I used a 12 mm and a 6 mm punching tool respectively, and some general adhesive cloth tape from the hardware store. My new eyeglasses will arrive next week Kind regards Mathias
