Leica IIIa: Finder blockage with Nokton 1.5/50

How much does a Voigtländer Nokton 1.5/50 (without hood) block the viewfinder of a Leica IIIa? This has certainly been asked before but I cannot find a quick answer. Thank you in advance.

It blocks it alot, in fact it makes the built in VF practically useless.

I use a SBOOI finder on my Leica III and its Nicca copies when I use the 50mil Nokton f1.5 lens or the Canon 50 mil f1.4 lens.

That is not good news. I will give it a try anyway. If it really blocks that much I can still use my old KONTUR.

A SBOOI and its modern CV clone are expensive to buy but they make using these old cameras very enjoyable, even on the Canon bottomloader cameras, with their dim and squinty tiny viewfinders.
