Well its time to improve my participation here, I let you the only bessa that I have the opportunity to use for a couple of months. I love this camera, its simple, light and just beautiful. Didn´t buy one because I was looking for a stronger body, and for that I had go to Zeiss Ikon (that is kind of the same thing, but a little better). Maybe some day I could buy one for a second body.

Are these worth buying new? Considering an R4a or a used M3 and getting a voightlander lens, probably the 35 1.4.

R4a are hard to find used, but if everything checked out then Used is fine. R3A and M3's are very different so choose wisely.

Is one better than the other? Other than "One is a Leica, therefore it's inherently better"?

Helping revive the Bessaporn!



From last weekend's abandonment adventure.



Making the Voigtlanders kiss... with my minty Vito II (scale focus, albiet). I used the CV15 in Paris for a week without the fragile-looking viewfinder. It was a wonder to zone shoot.

It might be the ultimate in Bessa porn. A 1/2 frame Bessa R4M. Cosina made a couple of prototypes and I got one of them. It is a R4M with a frame set up oriented vertically, same 21 through to 50mm focal length as the regular Bessa R4M. Film gate is 18x24mm and the film counter goes to 72 frames.
Most likely not a production item as the market would be small.
With modern fine grain film image quality is not a problem and the vertical orientation of the finder makes it great for people shots. I have tried it with a variety of lenses, including Nokton 50mm f1.1 and Leica Summilux 50f1.4 Asph - but I use it mostly with the 28mm, either the Color Skopar 28mm f3.5 or the Ultron 28mm f2.0. Somehow the 28 seems to work well in this format - at least for me.
Ok, I know that the ocular is dusty - forgot to wipe it clean!

Sweet! Wouldn't mind shooting one of those.

Tom,

Glad I saw this post here. I follow you on Flickr and was thoroughly confused by the shutter counter when I saw this on Flickr. Makes sense now that I know the background.
