Hi ,I have been using a M4 for more than 40 years. I am a glasses wearer. I have never have any problem using the view finder or the range finder. It does not have the same amount of eye releive as the modern DSLR. you should try it out yourself.
Great article!! Thanks. Am really looking for a full sensor canon EVIL with m- mount adaptor. For me this would be ideal. No huge payment for a M-9 body that will be outmoded by an improved model in the relative hear future (relative to the length of time I'd be owning the Leica or Zeiss or Voitlander lenses). I love the comments about simplicity and ease of transport of gear.
one person referred to the need to take off glasses while looking into the viewfinder of the M-9. I am in that category. My diopter is 2.5 right now. Pardon my ignorance of the rangefinders but...... if I were to be wearing the correct diopter glasses (or glasses that are over magnified like a diopter 3.0 to be used only when using the camera), wouldn't this auto correct the focusing problem allowing me to focus accurately using the rangefinder???
thanks to anyone with experience along these lines.
