    Zeiss 435/5 waist level finder for Leica M

    This Zeiss 435/5 prism finder was made for the Contax RF but works perfectly as a 50mm finder on the Leica M. I used it paired with a 35mm Summilux on my M8.

    It allows you to shoot from the hip but still get accurate framing. You can get down low without having to lie on the ground and you can flip it to shoot landscape or portrait mode. Very effective for discreet close in shooting at a lower angle. You can remain upright and just frame with the finder.

    Amazingly good condition considering it's age. Glass is perfect. I have had the functionally similar Leica AUFSU finder and this is far better. And does not have the seperation issues with the mirror the Leica's usually have.

    My vision is at the point now where I can't use the tiny 35mm sized finder. For those of you with younger eyes this is a terrific tool.

    Finder and original case: $175. + $10 for insured UPS to CONU.
    Payment by Paypal

    Jack:
    Recvd the Zeiss finder today. It is in great condition. Thanks for quick and smooth transaction. At about half the price of an AUFSU and 1/10th the price of a AYOOC or AHOOT this is a great finder.

    Regards
    Prabha
