Tom, I had the opportunity to compare the two finders directly a year or so back. The cross hairs may be what you want but I was dissuaded from preferring the Zeiss version by the murkier view compared to the Leica finder. I cannot recall how the cross hairs were sited and how far they extended. Jem - -----Original Message----- From: Tom Schofield [SMTP:email@example.com] I would appreciate hearing from those who have seen the Contax 21mm finder. I am thinking of ordering one from Contax parts and selling my Leica 21mm BL finder. The Leica finder appears to be lower profile and bright, but I understand that the Contax finder has cross-hairs which could benefit my weakness in aligning wideangle lenses straight. I have tried using the framelines in the camera's viewfinder, which is alright with a tripod, but cumbersome handheld.
