Want autoexposure on your Viso?!  Make your Nikon your Viso.

Novoflex BALCAST bellows - just about the strongest and best-made
bellows ever.  Has the Novoflex bayonet at the camera end (and Nikon
body adapter NIKA) and an M39 lens receptacle on the other.  You can
mount other cameras by replacing NIKA with another adapter.

This is the Cadillac (Mercedes?) of bellows - supremely solid, pivoting
camera mount, separate focusing rails and vernier (very exact),
everything with precision thumbwheels and locks.

This would be a fun way to (a) mount yout 100mm+ viso lens heads (viso
people know more about how these mount) on your Nikon body (tehehehe) or
(b) mount any 105mm+ enlarging lens (or Novoflex 105mm lens head) for
super macro capability (consider that 105mm enlarging lenses cost less
than anyone's 105mm macro camera lens - and they do the same thing).

I got it to mount my Componon=S 80/4, but it had too much draw (i.e.
wanted to focus verrry closeup).  Since my componon 105 is in 25mm
mount, I would need to buy a new one.

Questions, ask please.

Mint in box mit instruktions in Deutch.
$65 postpaid in U.S.  $75 abroad.  This is less than the price of the
NIKA alone.
