Yeah, save that pocket laser for aligning rangefinders on old Leicas, the idea of staring into a laser doesn't appeal to me. The bright LEDs are obnoxious enough, but at least they won't fry spots on your retinae.

You could use the above mentioned brass tubing to make a small piece that screws onto the RF, containing a couple button cells and having a pushbutton on the end. Press the button, focus, click. Maybe I'll make one for my Linhof... and I have an old box of Royal-X in the freezer!
