Cheap 15mm external VF
« on: February 26, 2021, 01:35:55 am »

Hello. I need a 15mm external vf for a voigtlander super wide 15 V1 that Iím considering buying. Anyone know of cheap external VFs? Or anyone have one for sale? I found one for the Nikonos underwater lens but I think the VF will, like the lens, be only for UW. Anyone know about this?

I may have the original 15mm Voigtlander VF somewhere as I use Sony (although there's a possibility it might be the 12mm).  I'll see if I can dig it out.  Really not sure where it might be.

PM me and we'll see.

Pretty sure you are correct about the 15mm UW Nikkor that it's optimized for underwater...

I'd take a look on eBay and hope you find one unbundled from one of the several 15mm versions and doing a quick search out of curiosity, there are several Voiglander and Ziess besides the UW Nikkor for sales from around $100.

An alternative would be to buy a combo lens/viewfinder and sell the lens. Otherwise, you may be able to hack one from mounting board and duct tape like I once used to do, akin to a sports finder. It may look ugly but does the job!

I have looked around and cannot find the VF I used to have.  Probably discarded when I cleared out boxes some time ago.
