This Leica Brightline Finder M-18 is a viewfinder for 18mm M lenses. The finder provides a remarkably vibrant, high-contrast image.
The finder has parallax compensation markings for distances below 6.56' (2m) and also has markings for the slightly smaller image field of Leica M8 models. It can therefore be used for film and digital photography.
The optics are given a high-quality multi-layer coating to guarantee optimum viewing through the finder in all conditions. The high-quality metal body of the finder is designed in the popular retro look of the fifties and sixties, but is milled from solid brass according to the latest technologies and then given a silver-chrome finish. The eyepiece side is rubberized to protect eyeglasses.
