I'm fond of finders.
Might be why my 40 is my favorite lens.
I get to use the finder with it.
Or have to, supposedly, when I remember.
I never met a finder I didn't like. I have them for about every focal length
except 135. It may be I'll be in the category of "collecting" them as they
come from all different sources and vary so much. And go back to the 20's.
A lot of my shots if its normal or wider I never look though the camera at
