V-Bessa R2 Light meter issues
New member with first post so excuse me if this has been touched upon before. I didn't see anything regarding this specific issue after an initial look through the threads.
The light meter of my Bessa R2 is not responding and it's going to cost a couple of hundred to fix, if at all, as among other reasons, they are quite difficult to get parts for...or so I've been told.
Is this an "issue" with these specific cameras? Im wondering if its worth going through with this or even getting a new one? I really really like this camera.
I shoot colour in very fickle conditions so I would need a quick read, otherwise if it were predictable and stable I would probably go with a hand held and be done with it..which brings me to my second question - is it possible at all to attach an external light meter to the camera..for example via hot shoe? Sorry if that sounds ridiculous but I really have no idea.
And last, if I were NOT to continue with this camera, what would be a very similar one around the same price range? What I love about this is it's got no bells or whistles...Just a light meter and thats it. Im guessing there is a Leica equivalent that I can mount my 35 Skopar lens to? But I'm also looking at in alternatives other than Leica. (and in black)
