Viewfinder

Chris' new 35mm Voigtlander Bessa R2A rangefinder camera with a Cosina Voigtlander 35/1.2 lens

 

the patch in the center is the "rangefinder patch"... you focus by bringing the image inside of that to overlap the image regularly seen in the viewfinder. The viewfinder doesnt move, and the rangefinder patch doesnt move, but the image inside of the rangefinder patch moves left and right as you adjust the focus. You can see that the page to the right of the patch and the fold in the patch arent lined up.
