Hey guys! I have a serious problem. I got an used M2 in very good condition from my grandfather as a present. I'm in Australia right now. I wanted to take photos of a waterfall and I accidentally slipped off a rock. I had the camera on a strap for sure but it hit the rock. I'm happy the lens is ok and everything still works except for the Viewfinder. It's black but I still can see the framelines and change them with the lever. I know it's a common problem. The prism is seperated because of the old Canada Balm. Now I have two options...1. I can try to find someone who's able to put it together again and resilver the prism. I'm originally from Germany and there is no one who can do that so I must send it to youxin ye or someone else. The second option is to send it to Leica and get a new fiewfinder. I think they use an M6 Viewfinder for this. I love it there are only 3 different framelines in the old finder. The M6 finder has 6 framelines I think. 28/90, 35/135 and 50/75mm paired together. Now my question : do anyone know if I can use these framelines and all the lenses if I get this finder? Or cant the measurer in the bayonett automatically recognize all the lenses? I think they change nothing on the measurer...I hope you know what I mean. Did someone have the same problem and can give me some Infos on that? Thanks in advance! Greetings Thore Saggau
Many of you helped me on a recent post when I was considering moving from my meterless M3 to an M with a meter. I have tried to follow advice and stick with M3 for a while, but I know I am still feeling cramped (I like to change aperture regulalrly, so there is no 'measure once' effect for me). Having toyed with an M7 or MP for a few months, I've decided to go for a used MP. My first question, is there an early/late issue with the MP (in the same way that I read the viewfinder in early M7 is not so good as the later ones)? Also welcome any other 'check for this' tips when I'm looking at possible purchase. with thanks,
I use eyeglasses all the time but I think it'd be helpful to have a magnifier for precise focusing, especially when the lens is wide open. I have found mixed reviews about the 1.25x. I'm looking for a magnifier for 50mm and 35mm focal ranges, mostly 50mm. I'd be also nice to know if anyone makes angle viewfinders for 50mm and/or 35mm. I have a 262, so the EVF is not an option.
