    Well, you can NOT mount the Viso II with the prism that came with it on the M9. The prism for Viso III does work, both on a Viso II and III.

    I'd say, forget the Viso II and go for a Viso III; far more convenient to use (or rather, far less INconvenient . None of the Visos are really convenient).

    thanks Per and Greg, I already have the Viso II on my M4 & M3, just want some experts suggestion before try it on my M9. I do have both prisms. If I can find a Viso III at reasonable price, I would like to try it.

    If you have the pieces and parts why not give it a try? I happen to have the Visoflex III and it works even on my Olympus E-P1 although I have to mask the view finder to compensate for the format change. And I have to use two fingers to trip the shutter.... index for the mirror and trigger for the shutter button.
