View Full Version : viewfinder attachment for contaxes?
handy little thing -or not, dunno...looks cool!
Eh, that's about the max I'd pay. Then, I'm saving pennies for (along with everything _else_ :) ) a russian turret finder instead. If I have to futz with a finder of any kind, I'd rather do that one.
Also, just as a point of reference, my Contax book says that the 135 covers "just more than" the range finder patch and the 85 covers three widths of the rangefinder patch. So, with a little practice, a finder for the longs shouldn't be necessary. Just a thought.
does look kinda cool.
but i am a bit of a fool though and would actually try to shoot without it or an external finder.
me too, joe:) [however, it won't be the case for a while! no extra lenses in this year.]
the rangefinder patch in the contax is closer to a 200mm - but i use that rather than a shoe-mount finder with a 135, because it takes very little wobble in the shoe for the finder to miss the target by half the frame with that long of a lens.

Hmmm. Any idea of the coverage of the separate Leica IIIf rangefinder window?
That's harder to peg, since it's not the same shape as the frame. But it is useful for aiming a tele, just be a little casual about exactly where you want the edges to be.
are you looking for a 135 external finder?
i just aquired one for my 135 canon but now that i'm getting a canon 7 i really don't need the finder anymore.
let me know.
