That still happens to me even though I don't use SLRs any more, but it happened a lot when I was just switching over.  Now it seems to happen most whenever something really exciting happens in front of me, and I just have to get the shot *right now*.  Lift camera, shoot! Get film back - sigh.

Subject: [Leica] Rangefinder with SLR focus bias


I have recently switched back to my M2 after quite some time using

Too many of my M2 fotos are way out of focus.  I can think of only one
reason.  And that is because the rangefinder viewfinder is always in
focus I don't make any correction.  This must be it, because the out of
focus fotos are nearly always among the first on the roll.

This must happen to others especially to folk who carry more than one
camera but I have never seen it mentioned anywhere.
