Viewfinder/LCD panel  
Viewfinder Large, bright-line rangefinder with automatic parallax compensation, suitable for -0.5 dpt; optional
corrective lenses available: -3 to +3 dpt
Display Four-digit digital display with items show on the top and bottom,
Image field limiter: two lit frames: 35 mm + 135 mm, 28 mm + 90 mm, 50 mm + 75 mm (automatic switchover when lens is attached)
Parallax compensation The horizontal and vertical difference between viewfinder and lens is compensated automatically in line
with the relevant focus setting. Congruence of viewfinder and actual image.
The size of the bright-line frame matches the distance:
– at 2 m: the exact sensor size of approx. 23.9 x 35.8 mm
– at infinity: (depending on focal length) approx. 7.3% (28 mm) to 18% (135 mm)
– less than 2 m: less than sensor size
Viewfinder magnification x0.73 (all lenses)
Large-base rangefinder Split or superimposed image rangefinder shown as a bright field at the center of the viewfinder image

system-compatible flash units, remote controlled flash SF C1
Flash exposure compensation SF 40: ±2 EV in 1⁄2 EV increments
SF 60: ±2 EV in 1⁄3 EV increments
Other: ±3 EV in 1⁄3 EV increments
Displays in flash mode (in the viewfinder only) Flash icon: Connection of an external flash unit
