No one at all has stated that the Visoflex was necessary with the extension
tube.  What HAS been stated, in detail, is that there are TWO series of
Telyt lenses, one intended for use on the PLOOT and Viso I, and the second
series for use on the Viso II/IIa/III.  The optical registration on these
units is different and, hence, the bare tube will not work to accomodate
the 22.5mm-longer Viso II/IIa/III lenses directly on the cameras and to
maintain infinity focus.  A custom adapter, of course, could be made.
