New Walter Contrast Lens

Exclusive news from La Vida Leica! Walter Pretorius - the man behind the Walter Eyepiece, Walter M-Stedi, Walter M-Sleeve, Walter Nut Cracker and the Walter Leica Roll Bar has today unleashed his newest creation - the Walter Contrast Lens!

Based on our original and highly-regarded Walter Eyepiece design, this amazing eyepiece has a special gold color multicoating, which intensifies the contrast and reduces glare, resulting in easier, faster focusing. We've also improved the dimensions to provide an improved view through the finder and make it fully compatible with half cases. It's also available in three variations - custom prescription lenses as always, plus regular diopter or plain lenses so now everyone can benefit from the contrast enhanced optics! Special launch price: $180.00 (includes postage by registered airmail)

Update (8/4/14):

Funny how "exclusive news" means nothing when other websites shamelessly steal your thunder, reposting it without credit... Like Steve Huff and Petapixel. So if you're wondering... They all read it here first.
