Here is NikonD200 's Sony NEX DSLR with the use of the Leica Visoflex I from 1956. The Visoflex is attached to the NEX-3 using a Leica M to E-mount lens adapter.

Below shows how a Leica bellows can be used for macro shots using the NEX and the Visoflex.

The focusing and composing is done through the Leica Visoflex viewfinder. A lever flips up the mirror and then hits the shutter release button.
