  • Viewfinder
  • Viewfinder

    Large, bright-line rangefinder with automatic parallax compensation, suitable for -0.5 dpt; optional corrective lenses available: -3 to +3 dpt


    Four-digit digital display with items show on the top and bottom,

    Image field limiter: two lit frames: 35 mm + 135 mm, 28 mm + 90 mm, 50 mm + 75 mm (automatic switchover when lens is attached)

    Parallax compensation

    The horizontal and vertical difference between viewfinder and lens is compensated automatically in line

    with the relevant focus setting. Congruence of viewfinder and actual image.

    The size of the bright-line frame matches the distance:

    – at 2 m: the exact sensor size of approx. 23.9 x 35.8 mm

    – at infinity: (depending on focal length) approx. 7.3% (28 mm) to 18% (135 mm)

    – less than 2 m: less than sensor size
