I have just bought my first rangefinder (Bessa R), and need help with hyperfocal distances. I have a programme which will print out a depth of field/hyperfocal chart for a specific focal length and camera type. The only rangefinder option given is the Leica M8; other than that, it's 35mm film camera, and the difference between the calculations given are huge e.g. for a 90mm m8 lens at f/8 it's 145ft; for a 90mm generic film lens at f/8 it's 111ft.

Probably an obvious question, but I pressume the M8 charts are the ones I should be using.
