m9 and default frame lines


Recommended Posts

forgive me if this question has already been asked and answered but I have not found it yet.


when attaching the 21 mm m lens or any other lens that requires a separate view finder

which frame line will be visible in the main finder? On the .72 cameras I thought this was the fifty mm frame set but the question has come up in the dp review leica talk so now I am not so sure.

so any one with an M9 and 21 put it on your camera and tell me what frame line shows in the view finder. thanks John

Does it really matter since you need a external VF for the 24, 21 and wider lenses.


Sorry I don't have a M9 but I would suspect it will be the same as on a film M with x.72 finder. All the other framelines are the same as on a film M and all 21mm lenses have the same, or are supposed to have the same, lens mount.

Framelines are important with both the M8 and the M9 as the lens identification works not only from the 6-bit coding, but also from the position of the frame lever. So both must agree.


21mm lenses must key in the 28/90 frames.

24mm, as stated above, need 24/35/135.
