Looks just like the one I just purchased Steve.  I think I bought a
Visoflex II though it was advertised in the paper as a Visoflex III.
But it is not a III if Brian Bower's photographs and labels in "Leica
M Photography" are correct.

I have a silver 65mm lens on mine instead of the black lens pictured.
I assume that the "middle attachment" is the 16466M unit and after
that comes the lens.

To tell you the truth I do not think Brian has it all correct on page
80 and 81 of his book.  For instance I do not think I have the 16464
and 16471 units that he says goes between the Visoflex and my 65mm

Somewhere in Leica-land there must be some straight dope on all of
this Visoflex stuff.  I took some very very close photographs today
with mine.  At least I think I did.  The water droplets hanging on a
twig were not as clear as I expected/desire them to be when looking
through the unit.          Dale
