    Visoflex III Mint Eye level prism $300

    I ended up buying a couple of Visoflex III's to be able to use the 400 and 560 Telyt lenses on my M8.
    I am going to keep one and sell this one. It is truly Mint, with almost no signs of use. It works perfectly.

    Visoflex's are hard to come by since they have a new "lease on life" with the advent of the M8. Telephoto and Macro work are possible and fun on the M8.

    $300

    thanks

    It will work with any M. The Viso converts the rangefinder body into an SLR body. In that way you can use lenses made for the Visoflex to do close up, or telephoto work.
    these links explain the Visolfex

    Correction:

    I am not sure about the M5. I think it needs a different length arm.

    can this be used with the 90 asph or 50 lux asp without any adapters?

    No, you will need to detach lensheads from special visoflexlenses and further you will need so-called shortmounts. The shortmount has to be switched with the standard or long mount. The shortmount in conjunction with the lenshead can be put to work on normal focal length on the visoflex.
