If you want to use lenses on your Kiev (or whatever) other than the 50mm, you simply MUST get one of these finders. Not only do they work and, if you get one from Yuri, are totally clean and functional, they add authenticity to the feeling of the vintage camera you use it with.
Parallax is a problem for the rangefinder camera, but this finder goes at least halfway to solving the problem. You will still need to learn about the "Kentucky windage" and aim off needed for expert results, but it is well worth taking the time and trouble to perfect this skill.
The finder comes in a well thought out bakelite case to protect the finder and other gear in the camera bag.Rating: [5 of 5 Stars!]
