...and one of the most expensive too! But it's fun. Visoflex III and M9 now up on my site: http://www.rogerandfrances.com/subscription/worst%20dslr.html.

Now THAT is backwards compatibility!

There is something very pleasant and mellow in the rendering of that old Elmar lens on the M9. I like itl

I've used a Viso II box and III prism on my M8 with decent results. it's fun, it's different and it's cumbersome as hell. nothing lines up quite right with the shutter release arm, so I do all kind of little cheating (locking up the mirror to meter with the camera, etc.). I haven't bothered to mark the frame lines on the ground glass; I just estimate. It's an entirely goofy setup but I do enjoy having it. I've used a 90/4 elmar head on an OUAGO focus unit, as well as a J8, Canon 35/2, Canon 50/1.4 directly on Viso (moving the camera as coarse focus). Damaso showed everyone at the NYC get-together yesterday a rather stunningly beautiful image in the Leica Magazine of rabbit taken with a 800 telyt on a viso. Amazing sharp. Great color. Nice bokeh. Cute bunny.

Leica has a unique opportunity to build an EVF-based, mirror-less digital visoflex, providing FF compatibility to all kind of SLR lenses, including R. I wish they would consider it ....

a very apt analogy. I think I need to exactly that later today. and, of course, some vinyl, too.

...Yes, kind of like playing CDs through a tube amplifier.
