LEICA Viewfinder Magnifier M 1.4x

Hello Internet,

my latest Leica purchase is the Viewfinder Magnifier M 1.4x. I hesitated a bit buying it but finally am very happy to have it now. Its a bit pricy – comes in for about € 250,–. Also I have not been sure if you see the 50mm frame lines, but after using it for some time I can tell you see them if you push your eye close enough to the viewfinder.

From the point of usability it is a thumbs up from my side. The rangefinder patch is much better to see and focusing speeded up.

If you can’t decide to get the 1.25x or 1.4x for a 50mm in my opinion get the 1.4x.

You get along with the magnifier a little leather case for storage as well a little chain.

Just to highlight: bought @ Digitalstore Vienna – my trusty Leica dealer!

Greetings,
Picki

Here some kind of unboxing pictures I took with my new X-Pro1 and the 35mm 1.4. (Click to enlarge)

  1. How do you find using the magnifier? I have always been hesitant as I feel it protrudes too far off the back of the body for carrying around the streets.

    1. I have been using it now for a while. I my opinion it does not protrude too far. The only thing is that you have to look a bit down to see the meter reading.
