Thanks Jan for the warning. I am just not able to find one to buy.

Hopefully the rewind lever will not fall anytime soon.

Talking

Thanks,
is it correct then that because its an M3 googled version
The 50 framelines are BIGGER / like the 50 framelines in the M3
Even though my VF is an M4 version, when i look through my VF , the 50 'LOOKS' way bigger to my Eye than when i put a standard 50 lens
Or am I hallucinating ...J

Oh hey Taskoni ... pleased you Appreciate 'Miss Plain Jane'...

It had to happen...I caved in to Leica lust. My M2 arrived from a shop in Denmark last Monday. This is a bit of an hybrid, with M4 levers and quick load kit. 1965 vintage in good shape. Fantastic finder indeed, and such a pleasure to handle. It'll share lenses with my Hexar RF. Slow speeds sound a bit dodgy so it'll go for a CLA soon after I tested it with film. Curtains are sound, range-finder spot on and so crisp and clear. I can now really understand all the praise on this camera. Oozes quality.

Leica M4 w/21mm Super Angulon. The finder was pretty much a freebie but who can tell me what on earth it is exactly?! It's huge!
Obviously looking for the true Leica 21mm finder but I don't really need it for now

Is that an Avenon/Kobalux 21 finder, that came bundled with the chrome version of the Avenon/ Kobalux 21 ƒ2.8 Super Wide?

I have one of the last series black millennium lenses and love that glass.
The finder though is reported to be 1) huuuuuge 2) so so.

It looks to be the avenon finder. Like already mentioned, it's no where as good as the cv finder. I never used mine

Kobalux indeed. I've got the same one in black. It's bigger than at least one of my M lenses.

Really like the look of these 2 "camo" M6's julescasablancas's black version & OSFlanker's silver version.
I'm not exactly sure why they have such an appeal to me, maybe it's because they look so purposeful. Almost military in appearance.
Anyway, if I were to own a M6 I would have to own one of each.
...of course!
