A couple questions on the Bessa R2 build quality...
I recently got myself an R2 (used but in very good condition). I like the camera - simple, light and fairly substantial in feel. But I have two queries that those who use/have used the camera can help to clear-up.
The wind-on lever has quite a bit of vertical play. Is this the build quality I should expect?
The rangefinder patch is wonky - isn't parallel to the horizontal frame lines. The double image is fine both horizontally and vertically as are the frame lines. I took a few pictures framing the horizontal using the patch and they've came out slanted.
Have any of you experienced this before and can it be straightened? Or is this the limits of the build quality for this Bessa?
