Subject: [Leica] Viewfinder - M3
From: John Hudson <>
Date: Tue, 06 Mar 2001 21:40:28 -0800

I have a single wind  M3 body, s/n 101****, dating to November 1960. Can
anyone please tell me what proportion of the area captured on the
negative / transparency is actually seen through the brightline
viewfinder? Is this proportion the same for any lens mounted? I have a
42.5mm 35/1.4 Summilux with bug eyes, a 43mm 50/1.4 Summilux, a 90/2.8
Elmarit, and a 135/2.8 Elmarit with bug eyes.
