Just practice. We did it in the past so you can do it as well. Now Visoflexes are what they are. No WYSIWYG with them, just a ground glass and a slapping mirror. See:

First macro with Visoflex 3, M8 and Elmarit 90mm f4.

ISO 1250, 1/45, F4:

 

It is the cover of the Elmarit 90mm f4 lens.
Yes, it is true, practice and practice is the best.

coming to this a little late, I have used M cameras for about 40 years. Never looked at them as cameras for macro photography. I would always go to a Canon or in the digital age Nikon. Last year I bought a CL and have been doing a lot of macro ever since. I am still using lenses I had, for copy work or copy stand or hand held I have a 40mm Macro Kilar, for outside work a 90-180 Vivitar Flat Field macro, a 2.5 lb beast of a lens but everything is well balanced, and the working distances are great. I alway was looking for a 65mm Elmar, but it doesn't have much more working distance than the Macro Kilar. The DNG files from the CL are great and don't require much work.

CL 90-180 Vivitar

Viso flex with M9 or 10 and appropiate 65 90 or 135.   Black 65 is newer formula,  90 2.8 Elmarit can be used with bellows or extension tubes,135 4.0 same as 90 2.8.

M8 is fine but viso is for full frame and you will get cut off edges.  Mark them off

M10 can use electronic viso or live view.  240 ??  I am not an expert.

I am sticking with paragraph one.
