piece of cake . i used the wet method on camera leathers website . this was the second one i have done and the old m6 covering came off very easy . the m2 i did first was a little more labor intensive to remove the old covering but not that bad .

Sweet, an excuse to take some snapshots with my GRD2 for once. (Not getting much use since I picked up the M8, a shame too)

My M8 showing off the Nokton.



M8 enjoying some sun.



Hard to tell from the snaps, but there is a Thumbs up Model 3 mounted as well. Ingenious and indispensable for the monster nokton.

I did on three occasions try to buy used M-Motors, but in each case the battery holder had play in it where it joined the base. I fear this 1.33Kg mass would snap a motor in half

The first few films showed I could not cope with simultaneously composing; estimating the parallax shifts; keeping the camera level and square - thus necessitating the monster you see today.

At least, if it comes down to it, it should swing well and make a good dent in any nighttime attacker's ribs.

Hans,

The Frankenfinder is officially known as the UNIVERSAL WIDE-ANGLE VIEWFINDER M #12011

http://uk.leica-camera.com/photograp...ries/2218.html

It's not the most popular of accessories and it seems like a few dealers are selling them off as demo-stock.
Leica have now made it a compulsory purchase with the 16-18-21mm WATE.

Donald.

It really is a great finder, if you can deal with the size.

Just got this minty Chrome M8 with Leica half case. The lenses are Canon 50 f1.4 LTM on the body and Voigtlander 50 Nokton f1.5. Waited one week for my M-Coder and UV/iR filters to arrive from Popflash.

You are right. I found the post now that you reminded me of the brand name, and I was able to search for it:
