LeicaLeica Viewfinder M magnifier : Leica Camera AG, Solms has added practical accessories to its rangefinder system to fit the new M lenses and cameras. Besides two compact brilliant viewfinders for the short focal lengths 21 mm and 24 mm, a new viewfinder magnifier is also available. Screwed on to the eyepiece of Leica M cameras, it magnifies the viewfinder image by 1.4x. The new viewfinders for 21 mm and 24 mm M lenses provide a remarkably vibrant, high-contrast image. Due to a concave mirror in the optics (hence the term ‘mirror viewfinder’) part of the incoming light is used to illuminate the picture outline as a bright frame - in the same way as in the viewfinder of Leica M cameras.

High quality Leica Brilliant Viewfinder M
The two finders have parallax compensation markings for distances below 2 m and also markings for the slightly smaller image field of Leica M8 models. They can therefore be used just as well for film photography (24x36 mm) as for digital photography (18x27 mm). The entire optics are given a high-quality multi-layer coating to guarantee optimum viewing through the finder in all conditions. The high-quality metal body of the finders is designed in the popular retro look of the fifties and sixties, but are milled from solid brass according to the latest technologies and then given a silver-chrome or black paint finish to match the cameras. The eyepiece side is rubberized to protect eyeglasses. The Leica Brilliant Viewfinders M will be on sale at Leica stockists‘ from November 2008.

Leica Viewfinder Magnifier M 1.4x
The Leica Viewfinder Magnifier M 1.4x is an accessory that considerably facilitates picture composition when using focal lengths above 50 mm and improves focusing accuracy with very fast M lenses. It is compatible with all Leica M models and enlarges the central area of the viewfinder image by two fifths. Roughly 70% of the original viewfinder image can still be seen. For example, a 0.72x camera viewfinder (M8 models: 0.68x) becomes a 1x viewfinder (0,95x); this combination also allows comfortable viewing of the subject with both eyes. Particularly with the Leica M-system 75 to 135 mm telephoto lenses, the clearly larger viewfinder image offers significantly better recognition of subject details inside the field frame. At the same time, the 40% increase in the effective measuring base results in a corresponding increase in focusing accuracy. This is an advantage for all very fast Leica M lenses when the full aperture of the lens is used to apply the shallow field depth to a specific detail of the subject.

Leica Viewfinder Magnifier 1.4x availability
To secure the Leica Viewfinder Magnifier M 1.4x against loss, it is supplied with a black chrome brass retaining chain that can be attached to the carrying strap eyelet. The viewfinder magnifier is supplied in a leather case with a loop that allows the magnifier to be stored on the camera’s carrying strap, protected and ready for use. The rubberized eyepiece protects eyeglasses from being scratched and enables correction lenses M to be used. The Leica Viewfinder Magnifier M 1.4x complements the viewfinder magnifier 1.25x already in Leica’s product range and will be on sale at Leica stockists’ from October 2008
