I had a similar experience. Recently I sent a Leitz 21 finder to a well-known repair person to have it cleaned, and it came back with the frame lines no longer level and rattles. When I complained,...

Thank you for all you input and advice. It doesn't look like you can size it any smaller than ~4.2 M in the camera, and the only way is to resize on a 3rd party software. Thanks JRG, I will look at...

Hi, does anyone know if the Sony RX100 can take images smaller than 5M (and standard quality)? I ask because certain websites require a smaller image to post, e.g. RFF, and going through LR to...

Not necessarily. The DP-1 and the DP-11 are needle-based systems whereas the DP2 is LED. The DP2 is more sensitive, but I prefer the DP-1. You can use it with the older lenses (pre-AI or AIS)...

I've used a 55mm Hoya R72 filter on my 21SA with a step up. The R72 is a little hard to find, and even if found, it is expensive, so in this case, I just bought a $3 48-55 adapter on ebay. Yes, as...
