Leica D-Lux 4 and Voigtlander 28mm Viewfinder

Can someone please tell me if the Voigtlander 28mm viewfinder will allow the flash to work on the Leica D-Lux 4? If so, do you have a picture I can see. I'd like to order one from CameraQuest but Stephen Gandy doesn't know if the flash will clear the viewfinder. Thanks.

The flash will clear.

Keep in mind this is the Voigtlander 28/35mm viewfinder. Not as wide but you can see outside lines a bit and takes some practice for good approximation. Very good size for D-Lux 4.

I also use the 28/35 mini-finder. I think it was pretty obvious the flash will clear with the Dlux-4 picture, but here's another with the finder attached to the LX3.

Actually on CameraQuest site, there is the new "28 Metal Brightline Finder -- Superb 28mm VF" (not squarish). You can search for this here:

Will this one clear? Thanks.

I was wonderring if 21mm worked better than 28 for dlux4! Anyone has 21mm for dlux4?
Thanks for your output,
Louis

I just bought a second hand Leica 28mm viewfinder and a Petri viewfinder which doesn't indicate the scope, but has Wide and Telephoto frame lines. I picked up both for les than US$50.00, and the Leica works great with the lens at the 24mm setting--it covers practically the same field of vision. The petri works well using the wide frame lines when the lens is zoomed all the way to 60mm, so go figure!

Both viewfinders allow the flash to pop up fully.

I suggest you look in your used equipment camera shops for a used scope.

Regards,
Tony
