    Old-school rangefinding

    I've put together a mini review of the Leitz Fokos rangefinder which I've used some time in my landscape photography:

    Leitz Fokos rangefinder mini review

    It's not a Leica Disto D5, but if you don't use the rangefinder for focusing (ie you use live view or ground glass + loupe) and only use it to make depth of field judgements together with tables or DoF apps I find it to have adequate precision.

    As I like fine mechanical instruments and don't like to carry a lot of weight or battery-powered things, this rangefinder together with a laminated DoF table card is my tool of choice.

    Very nice. Just to add to this, I did a review of a bunch of rangefinders you mention in your review:
