I can't find the Leica reference number of the minus 2 correction lens for R8 or R9 anywhere. The Leica website is hopeless, as is the instruction manual for the camera. If it is not some esoteric secret, could somebody tell me where to look, or better, let me know the rotten number!

 

Thanks, EJohnE.

Thanks for the information re the correction lens minus 2 diopter. I have just paid for a near- mint R8 from Ffordes to replace the one with the wrecked shutter. A pity I hadn't thought of a correction lens at the same time. I certainly will order one from either them or from the German people.

Thanks again for the information. I ordered and have received a -2 & a -3 diopter correction lens from SH, together with a 5 metre release and a matte screen with grid. The whole lot cost me about the same as if I had ordered only one correction lens and a screen in Australia - even with the €40 for p/p. Gawd 'elpus if I forget the lens when using the right-angle finder.
