What do you do to account for the 1.3 multiplication factor on the M8? I had 
to put some black tape on the ground glass to get the proper framing...
Wondering if you have a better way or if you just visualize it.

Yes, it hit the fan here!? I bought the Visoflex so I wouldn't have 
to haul around an SLR when I hike 11,000 feet up a mountain.? The M8 
does a fine job with close-ups and I don't feel the lack of an SLR at 
all.? The Visoflex is a marvel to me:
