Hi L-forum team, This week I bought the new M-P and the seller offered me the Visioflex EVF2 as an extra gadget. But I did not buy it as I was unsure if I would use it. This is what I read at the Leica homepage: "This electronic viewfinder is available as an optional accessory for the Leica M. With a resolution of 1.4 megapixels and 90° swivel action for capturing images from unusual angles, it displays all significant exposure parameters. Thus it allows precise control of composition particularly in very bright light. Efficient focusing with Leica R-Lenses adapted to the Leica M is also possible." The 90 degree swivel action is something I can image I will use once a month but is this it. I do not think I will buy any R-lenses. I know some of you will now say: "but do not buy it then". But like with the iPad when it came people wondered why it is being released as it is not needed and look what it became. There I am thinking maybe I have a need but I do not know of it yet! How do you use your Visioflex? Do you find it useful? NOTE! I have a 35 & 50 Summilux with the M-P and shooting mostly street photos, portraits and occasionally landscapes.

I have just acquired a visioflex iii for my M9 and there is a problem........ The unit attaches to the M9 just fine, and i can push the bayonet lever on the visio up without a problem however the whole unit rotates around because the bayonet lock lever on the camera doesn't click into the recess slot on the visio mount correctly. I also tried it on my M6 which is a little better but not right. Does anyone know how to adjust the rear male bayonet on the Visioflex so that it aligns properly? regards Paul
Every 2-3 months my TL2 gets into a state where it does not recognize the Visioflex EVF, so far it has not happened in the middle of any active session. The solution seems to be to reset the camera, nothing short of that works. Has anyone else seen this and have a better workaround? I'm using the latest firmware for the TL2. Thanks for any insight.
