Subject: [Leica] Rangefinder + Super-wide lens
From: Chris Bitmead <>

What's it like using a rangefinder with a really wide (21mm or wider)
lens? Often wide angle photos have a lot of near-far perspective,
sometimes where the near thing is right up close to the lens. Is the
parallex error of the viewfinder particulary bothersome in this
situation? Especially since it being an add-on viewfinder there would be
no parallex correction at all. Is this the time to pull out the SLR, or
is just another minor quibble of a rangefinder camera?
