I have always considered an Leica M + visoflex to be something of a kludge. I
really can't understand why my father bought that back in the 1960s rather than
say a Nikon F.

I think using the Leica rangefinder, with its relatively short base line, with a 200mm
lens is not going to be that accurate.
FWIW, the only reason I have the 180mm f/2.8 Nikkor is that due to the cosmetic
damage the camera shop was selling it for less than a 200mm f/4 Nikkor which is
what I actually went to buy. Since I don't take action shots, I didn't need the extra
speed, but it might be useful. And it will do what I want (pick out details on buildings,

Sure. It's a great pity this happened.
