Yes I'll do that first. In normal room light I thought that prism looked clean, but with a good strong light - yuck! Looks like it's covered in a light haze of grease.

At the moment, this is what it looks like when viewed from the rangefinder window:
So the dirty or degrading surface is in focus when you look into the rf window - Would the beamsplitter be in focus? Everything else should be simpler than that?

Beam splitter should be the out-of-focus bright rectangle in the background, so I'm guessing that this is something else.

The main finder in my SP is a little hazy but does the job in most situations.

8.5cm f1.5 Nikkor LTM probably on a Leica M6 or M7 or MP, I forgot.

I wish I had this lens in Nikon S mount - it is the most beautiful of all of the short telephotos ever made in rangefinder mount.

Wow, excellent rendition! Haven't come across the 1.5 version, or even seen a pic from it before!

Thanks for sharing this picture. I'm interestered in getting a digital body for the rangefinder Nikkors, please see the thread on the Nikon RF forum, title Nikon RF lenses on a digital body. Do you have any experience with other Nikkors, either LTM or S-mount, on the Z6 ?
