I've read there are focus screen issues with the Visoflex, and wonder about your experience with that. Have you upgraded your screen?

I don't think anyone's answered the above - I've used the stock standard Visoflex III for macro work using a Nikkor attached to the Visoflex via an adapter, and found no major focussing issues (you can check on my flickr - see 'visoflex' tag) so there ought to be no issues for telephoto work either. However I did find the standard ground glass feeling a bit basic (i.e. no split-screen). You can get a version of the Visoflex with slot-in glass and I believe you can get a split-screen/prism effect with one, but it's rare. You may be able to get one custom-ground from DAG.

Good luck.
