Luis Why don't you get a MP viewfinder for your M6 and spend the rest of the money for new lenses? Leica's offering to put the MP7 vf in all M6, M6-TTL and early M7 cameras (AFAIK the newer M7 have the MP vf anyway). On the message board of www.leicainfo.de I've read this costs less than 300 Euro. For a 21mm lens, as a good alternative there's the Voigtlander 4.0/21mm. Didier > >Thanks for your opinion.
