|Just checking if someone here has tried this - using a mirrorless body like a Nex with the old Visoflex system or others of its imitators.
The idea is that of adding an SLR-like reflex optical viewing system to a mirrorless digital, just like one could use on rangefinder cameras of old.
Old Visoflex systems aren't very expensive and some of the imitators like Accura and Kilfitt are even cheaper.
One should be able to mount these on a Nex with a standard Leica adapter, and mount some tele lenses at least, or bellows.
Since mirrorless cams aren't very good for telephoto work, this may be a workaround.
I like Pentax DSLR's, Exaktas, M42 bodies of all kinds, strange and cheap Japanese lenses, and am dabbling in medium format/Speed Graphic work.
