    Focusing Question

    While doing research on the M9, I saw a link to Leica's site:

    http://m.leica-camera.com/messsucher_en.html

    where they illustrate how the camera focuses. I understood the mechanics before looking at the site but I had never seen the size relationship between the focusing patch and the frame lines.

    What I would like to know is how do you isolate specific subjects like tree branches with Summilux lenses and a patch that is so big?

    Quite simple. See the M9 manual page 134.

    After some communications with others, it seems that I misunderstood the focusing patch. I thought that the patch was the total area that was being focused as opposed to anything within that patch can be focused on. Big difference!
