It is back in the film days of yesteryear with range finder camera. But the VF-1 never had the capability of those old range finder cameras vf's. It was design to be used only with the 17 2.8. Where it match the lens' view. But not go for any other lens.

yeah as Shoturtle says in the film rangefinder world they would often times sell the finder and lens as a combination as the finder was matched to give the same field of view as the lens it was sold with. Like these old Canon Serenar rangefinder lenses;
