Bessa R2 for the newbie
I'm new to rangefinders though my interest has been there for a long time. I've made comments to friends that if I inherited a large sum of money the first thing I'd buy would be a Leica M6 or Konica Hexar RF.
Now that ain't gonna happen anytime soon because I don't have that kind of money to throw down on a camera.
I have been eyeing the Bessa R2, and have a few questions for those who have the cameras and other (more expensive cameras) to compare it to.
(1) How does the camera compare to Leica M or Konica Hexar ?
(2) It looks like there are 2 distributors. Where do I send this thing for repair. I live in Portland, Oregon are there people in Portland or Seattle who can work on these cameras?
(3) I normal shoot with a 35mm f2. What is the most afforable option for me to shot in the lens length and speed?
I appreciate any and all assistance.
