>There is no new 15mm finder, only a new 12mm finder.
>>Finders are separate for the M mount lenses.... they were free with 
>>the older LTM lenses.....
>>One disadvantage of the M mounts... they are not 6 bit coded...... 
>>and I am not sure they CAN BE 6 bit coded.....
>>A reason to use older LTM technology, and get those coded LTM-M 
>>adapters.....and save a few bucks....
>>Now the UV/IR filters are a whole other problem.....
>>Vick..why get the Leica 18mm ?  Coded, filter available, price not 
>>all that bad...?
>>Leica Users Group.
>>See for more information
