Subject: [Leica] Canon 135/3.5 lens/finders

Frequently, the Canon and Nikon 135's come with their finders.  If they
have the leather case, the finder will be in a small compartment above
the lid.  I have found the Canon finder to be quite serviceable.

The Zeiss Turret finder designed for the Contax system will cause
parallax problems as the finder sits off the lens axis.  Some of these
are made for Leica's and the turret is directly over the lens.  You can
tell which is which as the Leica versions have the turret to the left of
the eyepiece as you look through the viewfinder.  There is a parallax
compensation on these.  If you look on the turret, there is adjustment
that lets you set the focus point distance from infinity to 1.5 meters.

Thanks, Jim..  every little bit of info helps me make a decision.

And, I've got to say, the responses I've gotten, as a Leica newbie, from
the folks on this list have been outstanding.
