    Hey everyone,

    another question. I am interested in getting an A16 back for my 501C with PM5 prism finder. I notice that some of them listed at keh.com have masks included. I assume that this is to allow correct framing of the 6x4.5 view. Can the mask be used in conjunction with a PM5 finder? I.e. does it sit between the finder and the focus screen? Or am I completely out to lunch?

    Regards,

    M

    You are ok. The mask just lies on top of the screen. The prism slides in just fine. Enjoy!
