D-Lux 4: Does the Panasonic viewfinder have a frame for 35 mm focalwidth?

AFAIK they are both 24mm finders (no 'multi' frames). I'm sure either will do the job as well. VC make a range of finders 24mm, 25mm, 35mm etc.

 

Including one which shows 28 and 35 frames, might be a useful compromise?

I have an old Russian Helios finder which has 35mm, 50mm and 85mm framelines. You can pick them up on e bay for a few pounds/dollars/euro's or whatever.

 

I have that finder, and I have tried it on the D-Lux 4. It's not close enough to either the max wide or tele settings to be useful. I'm on the lookout for a 50mm finder myself, since I use it most of the time at the tele setting.

I bought my Leica 24mm viewfinder, for DLUX 4, a couple of weeks ago. I was a little bit surprised that a frame for 35mm also was there. It would have been better with 50mm or 60 mm instead, I think.

I too have a Helios, but I think the rather indistinct frame lines are for 35, 85 and 135?
