    Leica Visoflex (Typ 020) reviews

    Visoflex (Typ 020) Electronic Viewfinder is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 25.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from bright sun In bright sun it is difficult to use the the screen on the camera to compose a photograph...goes without saying.� Therefore I purchased the Visoflex.� I have found it to be next to useless in the same bright sun.� I called Leica support and they suggested increasing the brightness of the screen, but to no avail.� Oddly, if I initially compose with the camera horizontal, although anticipating a vertical shot, it will occasionally work, but not consistently.� The message is that in bright sun the Visoflex� functions inconsistently.� I have discussed this problem with another professional photographer and he has the same problem.� Indoors it functions fine.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost There For the way I use a camera, this was an essential component for use of the Leica T. I just can't seem to get used to using the touch-screen. The image seen through this EVF is incredible! It is so much better than the EVF on my Sony a7Rii! I can easily achieve critical focus manually without focus peaking, or focus magnification. However, there is some sort of lag. I can't tell if it's the refresh rate in the Visoflex, or some sort of input lag in the connection between the Leica T and the Visoflex. All I know, is that the picture I get is not what I saw when I pressed the shutter. This is even for fairly still subjects. I had three other photographers try it, and they all agreed. It is also pretty delicate for the price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from An Indispensable Accessory On my Leica M10, the Visoflex EVF (Type 020) is almost indispensable, especially with longer lenses like the 135/3.4 APO-Telyt. This lens is almost impossible to achieve sharp focus by using the optical rangefinder. With the Visoflex EVF you see what the sensor sees and with the aid of the focus peaking feature on the M10, you can get tack-sharp focus on any lens and even the telephoto lenses like the 90 and 135 which have historically been a challenge for viewfinder cameras. It is rather expensive for such a small item, but if it allows me to use my longer lenses with confidence that the focus will be right on, it’s worth it to me. The fact that it has GPS is a nice bonus, but I’m not sure I’ll ever use it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Adequate EVF with little drawbacks I am a X Typ 113 user and this evf does work well with my X. The screen is clear and it is much better than previous leica evf for other leica digitals. I can do manual focus more easily and fast ! However, the cons are: Slow start response Not fast enough to trace fast moving object GPS does not work with X Typ 113 Leica shall have better implementation and I hope Leica will release major firmwares for both X Typ 113 and Visoflex Typ 020 after the X-U is officially launched to the market.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from An essential adjunct to the Leica T The ability to flip up for waist and ground level shots is a joy to use. Wish it would swivel horizontally.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very useful and, in some applications, invaluable. This is extremely useful for tripod-borne technical and product photography because, while the LV function will indicate focus on the back screen, for truly critical focus (e.g. with shallow DoF) the camera must be immobile. I do most of that sort of work with my DSLR, but I'm glad to have the more portable Leica in tandem with that. For wider lenses, and to use other exposure mode functions and collect GPS data, this device is invaluable, too, albeit with a little lag if the framing is changed while viewing. Two problems, which are why I give only four stars: the battery drain is substantial in LV mode; and the GPS must apparently be turned on in a menu every time the Visoflex is attached to the body (I can't guarantee this is true, I've made a mental note to research it further).

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great addition Works very well. Easy to view, and good quality. Previously used the electronic viewfinder on the Sony RX1, but found it very poor quality and flickered a lot. Different experience with the Leica view finder for the Leica T. If using manual focus M lenses I'd say this is a must. I like the GPS feature too. Took one star away because it's way over priced and feels a little delicate and cheap compared the the Leica T.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great EVF--slow GPS This works very well for focusing. However, it is not needed on the M-10, the rangefinder is very good. It is necessary when using adapter lenses. I have tried with a few sony lens and focus is great. The GPS takes a long time to get a location. Battery life with GPS is good. However, battery life suffers using the EVF ( I have tried only using the EVF without live view and battery life is still poor. I have gotten two extra batteries and usually use two during an afternoon of street shooting
