Hola a todos. Soy nuevo en el foro


Tengo una M6TTL y un Elmarit 24mm con un visor externo. La composición con este lente es muy difícil porque la M6TTL es un par de milímetros más alta que otras Leica M analógicas (M2,M3,M4,M5,M6) por lo que el visor externo no es muy preciso.


Me encanta el lente pero quisiera buscar una Leica M que me de menos problemas


Quisiera conocer si alguien tiene experiencia con alguna de estas cámaras y un Elmarit 24mm.  Me interesa conocer si han tenido problemas de composición


saludos desde Ecuador, América del sur

Hello everyone. I'm new in the forum
I have an M6TTL and an elmarit 24mm with external viewer.
Composition With this camera is very difficult because the M6TTL is a couple of millimeters higher than other analog Leica M (M2, M3, M4, M5, M6) so the external viewer is not very accurate.
I love the lens but I would like to find another Leica that has fewer problems
I would like to know if anyone has experience with these cameras and the Elmarit 24mm. I'm interested to know if they have had problems of composition
Greetings from Ecuador, South America

Hi Armando,


these few millimeters do not affect the accuracy of the finder! The optical axis of the finder and of the lens must be parallel, than there is no difference. 4mm more ore less of your photographic subject in a distance of some meters - what does it mean? Nothing! Only the so called parallaxe in close distances is growing a little bit.

Thanks for the answers. Here, two pictures made at less than 1m of distance. 


I did not want to cut my children heads!!

Nice Guys ;-))


Does your finder not have a dottet line in the upper part of the viewing area? This is a hint, which parts of the picture will fall off when you are in the near focus range.


In former times everything was better ;-)))): look at this old vario finder, which has a lever underneath the eyepiece (it stands between infinity and 4m). With this lever you could tilt the finder in order to get the right picture depending on the distance of your subject. But: can you imagine, how often people did forget to adjust this lever? Or forgot it willingly because by time they got the experience to know how much will fall off in closer distances. That is my advice to you too: get experienced and dont "believe" your finder in every aspect.

      I have an M240 with the Epson viewfinder which turns the camera into a virtual SLR.  And when that happens I can use any lens which can be adapted to this camera. Currently I use a Pentax 50mm f/1.4 which is not RF compatible but with the VF it works just fine.  There are many old K mount zooms and macro zooms available to very attractive prices which would also work just fine.  So, my question is, has anyone on the board tried this?  And how did it work if it has been tried?  
      There is an abundance of new glass out there for Leicas and it is very good and the prices are very attractive.  With that electronic viewfinder a lot of old glass is usable, too.

      Hi All,
      I am considering buying a Zeiss 35mm lens for my M6 with 0.85 viewfinder.
      I can not really decide between the 2.8 and the 2.0 version. I would like to have the extra stop of light – but not sure if this would block the view- or rangefinder window.
      The little bit more money isn’t the problem – has anyone an Idea of the blockage with and without lens hood ?
      Thanks for thoughts and advice

      Hi There,
      I recently bought my dream camera, a Leica IIIf! 
      The unit came with a VIOHH Universal Viewfinder and noticed that the framing is crooked (see attached image). Has anyone seen this issue before, or know how to troubleshoot?
      Thanks in advance!

      Recently, my lightly used CL has been having viewfinder issues. When I turn it on it opens in the LCD mode as soon as I take a photo, it stays in the eyepiece /viewfinder mode even when I move my eye away. I have adjusted the sensitivity to auto, light, etc.  The only way it returns to the screen is by Turing the camera off/on again.
      This has reduced the enjoyment of the CL for me. Is anyone else seeing this chronic issue and is there a fix short of sending the CL back to the Leica (NJ) "hospital" for weeks.....and repair expense?
      Hope someone has an answer-my local Leica dealer was without an explanation.
