New Member, New Bessa T!

Hello folks, I thought I'd start a thread to relate my thoughts about the Voigtlander Bessa T, which is currently on its way to me from Japan. I have been watching M and M39 mount rangefinders for quite a while and finally caved for one of the Heliar 101 kits. I honestly don't know that I will keep the 50mm f3.5, but I am really itching to at least try it out. Same goes for the T, I want to see how easily I can use the rangefinder in concert with the VF.

I have shot digital and film for quite a while, but sort of took a long hiatus from film after every development option in my area became a wait of at least a couple weeks (plus I live half an hour from the nearest location, so it's an extra trip included for both drop-off and pick-up). Recently, however, I decided to jump back in with B&W film and do the developing myself - at this point, I've just been using Cinestill's DF96 Monobath, super easy to use, but am enjoying my results without getting any more complicated. I use an Epson V550 to scan the negatives. It's not a bad system, and minimal in the amount of equipment and space required. Mainly I am using the Ricoh 500G fixed-lens rangefinder for my latest film stuff.

I'll check back in with my impressions of the T! Nice to find a forum dedicated to RF use!
