I'm in love, folks. My IIIf + Summiron f/1.5 finally came back from DAG (only 8 months!) It's an amazing piece of craftsmanship, photographic heritage... and a real pleasure to use! For valentine's day, I put together a little "camera porn" video to ignite the passion in our hearts: [ATTACH]300494[/ATTACH]
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
