M9 65mm Elmar and Visoflex II

Doesn't the 4× rwr finder of the Visoflex II foul the top of the M9 body? I hope you are using the vertical 5× finder. If you code the rear flange of the Visoflex II body you will be stuck with that code for evermore! However, as far as I know no codes exist for Visoflex-only lenses.

I have the "chimney" finder as well as the Viso III eye-level finder, so no problems using the Viso...

The M9 works well with the codes turned off using the 135mm f/4 Elmar, 180mm f/2.8 Tele-Elmarit, 280mm f/4.8 Telyt, and the 400mm f/5 Telyt (MarkII). The M8 is also not affected by turning the codes off when using the 65mm f/3.5 Elmar, 90mm f/4 Elmar, 125mm f/2.5 Hektor or the 560mm f/6.8 Telyt with the trombone slide focusing; presumably these lenses will behave similarly on the M9.
