Subject: [Leica] Question About Viewfinder for 24mm M lens
Date: Thu, 15 Mar 2001 01:42:46 EST

I have the 24mm M lens and viewfinder for my M6.  My problem is that I use a 
diopter on the camera, as it allows me to see more of the frame than when I'm 
wearing glasses.

However, when I use the 24mm lens and the viewfinder, I find I'm constantly 
taking my glasses on and off.  A total pain!

Has anyone explored whether it is feasible to just forget about the external 
viewfinder and use the built-in viewing frame for 24mm?  If I did that and 
just assumed the whole viewing frame roughly reflected a 24mm view, how far 
off would I be?

I want to simplify my shooting experience if possible?

Thanks for any insight you can give.
