EPSN2225, originally uploaded by efroymson.

I have been having a lot of problems with my Epson RD-1. The focus is often wrong, the rangefinder patch is misaligned, the framing is off, and now occasionally I get a dark image, as if the shutter is sticking.

It seems however that with my 50 summicron the close focus works, so I can set the lens to minimum distance, and move in for focus. Effectively a 75mm lens, and thus hardly powerful macro, it is capable of some nice effects.

I wonder if the Leica digital will be able to do better. I hope it at least is more reliable.
