Help needed with magnifier
May 21, 2013

Hello guys, I need some help here with my decision to buy a magnifier.

I currently have a M6 ttl (0.72x) and M-E (0.68x) that I use with a 50 Summicron type V. After some months using my new Leica gear I find I could benefit from a magnifier (I use prescription glasses).

I have done some research on the subject and there is something I don´t quite yet understand. Magnifiers are recommended for 50mm onwards but what about wider focal lengths such as 28mm? I know framelines are more difficult to see but my question goes beyond this. When using wide FL precision is not that important? or what is seen in the viewfinder is bigger and the magnifier less useful? Am I missing something here? Even though I only have a 50mm lens I might add a 28mm in the future.

The next decision I have to make is to buy Leica vs non-Leica and 1.25x vs 1.4x. Is the 1.4x usable with a 28mm lens?

Thanks for your input.

Regards,

Jaime
