    I remember looking at your site when it first opened and thinking "these guys don't know what they're doing and won't last." Boy was I wrong on both counts!Nice looking products and I think you're doing a great service to the LF community.

    It does look great and very similar to my mint/mint- condition Voigtlander Rangefinder also measured in feet.

    Hmm, isn't it a bit silly that they have two different models, one in meters and one in feet, when both could easily be indicated on one dial? Oh well, it looks like a nice thing.

    Bravo! You have now surpassed ALPA in usability. I hope a mount will be built into your upcoming 6x9.

    Ciao!

    Only silly for those who still have younger eyes. If we put both scales on the distance ring the print would be very small.

    Could you add a clip-on, eye-safe laser pointer? My interest is for "Dambusters" focussing of portraits, but I'm sure there are those who could use it like the old focusspot attachment for night-time focussing of speed graphics.

    It's great to see products like this being made again.

    Having said that, I saw the price and gulped! A few months ago I picked up a virtually identical item (about 40 years old but in excellent condition and very accurate) on eBay for about GBP 6. Like this one, it was also capable of easy recalibration.

    I wonder if there will be a market for an item like this at this price point.
    The destination is important, but so is the journey
