    I use one of the ex-Soviet turret finders, as well as the 15mm Voigtlander. It's not bad when zone focusing, a bit slow otherwise because of the need to switch eyes.

    I picked it up and tried it on a camera, and it worked better than it looked, and it doesn't add much weight to the camera, but you just get a smaller frameline if you set a longer focal length. Functionally, it's not much different from the old-style Linhof finder (which uses a mask instead of framelines), which I managed to get used to, but for the price, there are better options (like a handful of single focal length finders, for all the lenses you actually own, for instance).

    Many, if not most of the lenses I want to use on my RFDR cameras require an external viewfinder. I do not find it difficult to get accustomed to focusing on the camera then switching to the external finder for composing.
