Adjustable Diopter

Hi - Are there Rangefinders out there with built-in adjustable diopters? Like my Nikon DSLR.

Thanks Geoff

For the RF, yes. Barnacks don't offer diopter adjustment of the VF.

Thank you so much! You've explained why my FED 2 viewfinder looked like mud (thought the lever was for sync speed adjustment). I now have an excellent condition FED 2 with case and strap that cost fifteen pounds!
