I saw a M7 with 0.85 finder on eBay, but not the "a-la-carte" version, it comes with its original box, manuals, papers, body cap and shoulder strap... the seller said that, it is very rare~ anyone can tell me...? is it more expensive than the 0.72 version at its original price? is it rare? also.... is the concept similarly apply for MP? ...I want to get one 0.85 for my 50mm lens... : ) here is the eBay link (just for reference): Leica M7 RARE 0 85 MP Finder rangefinder Film Camera Body LNIB 4022243105058 | eBay
Hello, I posted this question in the german forum also, but in german language. I use 50mm lenses nearly exclusively (sometimes 40mm also). But I'm always positively surprised, when I look through my Bessa R3A viewfinder. It has 1.0x magnification, is bright and clear. In any other aspects I really prefer Leica Ms. I always frame and shot with both eyes open, so a 1.0x viewfinder is essential for me. There are several ways to reach this and I hope some of you got some hints for me: - Has anyone a 0.72x Leica with an original 1.4x magnifier? Is the 50mm frame visible without moving the eye? - Has anyone a 0.72x Leica with a third party 1.35x magnifier? Is the 50mm frame visible without moving the eye? - Has anyone a 0.85x Leica with an original 1.25x magnifier? Is the 50mm frame visible without moving the eye? - Has anyone a 0.85x Leica with a third party 1.25x magnifier? Is the 50mm frame visible without moving the eye? I have a 0.85x Leica M6 with a third party 1.15x magnifier. Framing with both eyes open works great, but I'm not satisfied with the optical quality. But my dealer offered me an inspection and replacement. When I got the part back, I report you. Nevertheless I would be very pleased to get some hints and experiences Danke, Gottlieb
I have a 2854xxx black M7 0.85. I have read about different rangefinders being built into the batches of the later M7. I see, that my M7 does suffer from the same issues, my 0.72 M6 classic suffers (whiteout, low contrast with strong back light, … ). Although I can live with that, as I am already accustomed to it, I am very interested in which camera I have here. How can I find out?
