A few days ago I decided that it was time to take the bull by the horns and get myself a Bessa R. I opted to go for the R for various reasons, one key factor being the LTM mount, as I have a couple of local sources where occasionally one can pick them up fairly cheaply.
Another factor (unsurprising as I am a student) was the price. I paid about £130 for it, which I think was a reasonable price (Did I get a good deal?). For that I recieved the Bessa R (looking almost new), a Jupiter 8 with lens hood, a Leica strap and a Neoprene case.
I need to scan the negs from the test roll, but so far my impressions are that I have got myself a cracking piece of kit. It is light, easy to use and looks damn lovely.
