Viewing through a Kiev 4am (a version with improvements over the original Contax II clone) with eyeglasses I can not see all 4 corners at once. I never noticed while using it until I actually looked for this. The view does not compare to a Leica M or Besa, or Minolta CLE, but it is better than many others, and the RF is decent. PS- Most of the "high tech" companies I have visited lately prohibit cameras on site (including camera equipped cell phones); at some places they just have a sign which many ignore, at others they really mean it.
