Rangefinder have lines in their viewfinder showing the approximate FOV captured by the lens used. These can change according to the lens attached, and to correct for parallax when focusing. But the viewfinder itself stays the same, so a longer focal-length only has a smaller box denoting the FOV, and more space around it.

Like so, here with 50mm, 90mm and 135mm lines:

Very cool. I never realized that. Nobody I know has a proper rangefinder, and I don't know of any local shops that have one either.

I notice that along the bottom of the image it has A900 and GH1. Are these just options for a simulation program, or actual rangefinder viewer images for the A900 and GH1?
