If your serious about visoflex I have just about all the info you might 
need to put a small system together.  I found it as easy to use as my Nikon 
FG and Micro nikkor set-up.  The 90mm F4 Macro may be the way to go, it 
gets down to 1:3 which is just about the same as using a viso with the 
first version 90 f2.8 or the famous Elmar 65 f3.5.  There is a big 
difference between Close-up and Macro, if your looking for macro then a 
bellows is needed.
