I'm sure I read that new optical finders for 28mm and 35mm were coming out of China. The 7Artisans costing about $60. I cant find them anywhere. can someone help?

Thanks

are these 28mm and 21mm full frame finders? Samples shown on ttartisan web site only show them on crop frame cameras.

28mm and 21mm is the length of the finder, not the lens. Leica M9 is a full frame camera.

I'm not sure what 'length of the finder' means. I know a M9 is full frame. I need to know of these finders will cover a 28mm and a 21mm lens on a full frame film camera, there is no information about that anywhere and ttArtisan are in no hurry to reply.

The finders are relatively cheap and well made, I'd buy both of them but don't want to have them sent from China and find out that they only cover 21mm & 28mm lenses on crop (equal to 42mm and 31.5mm).

Ads say they are suitable for M3 M4 M5 M6 M7 M8 M9 and Ricoh a mix of crop and full frame.

View through the finder is same as with that focal length lens on FF camera. 28mm finder shows same view through FF camera with 28mm lens. 21mm shows same view as 31.5-33.6mm lens on crop camera.

These would be most useful with lens set parfocal; not for focusing!

I am pretty sure they will cover 21mm & 28mm full frame as they make these for their own Leica M mount lenses. You can buy later when reviews are out.

thank you for your answers, I heard no reply from TTArtisans, but found someone with a 28 and he confirmed it's full frame
