Re: R-D1?

Have RD1 +21mm skopar and 50 1.5 nokton

will had a 35 nokton 1.4  the 2.5 skopar is a better normal alternative, if you want less distorsion and don't car about f 1.4 or f2

when i'll have the money, i will had the 15mm 

You should really enjoy this rangefinder, as no need to turn o the LCD at all, even for WB or exposure compensation, and it con be turned to desappear.It's really enjoyable to have that time between 2 pictures, when you cock the shutter..

the 1/1 finder is really fine to view with both eyees, so you are in the scene.

My second option was the M8 too, but I chose the RD1 for the reasons above, and a little cheaper
