Great Rangefinder

redbeard753, Ebay
7 September 2010
  • Summary: While not as austere or burly as a Leica rangefinder, the voigtlander Bessa line is hands down one of the best deals in 35mm film cameras. The body is very sturdy and leaves no doubt as to its rigidity or longevity. All functions and film advance are nice and smooth, the shutter may not be the best in class but is still quite unpronounced compared to any SLR shutter. The meter is accurate as long as you remember it is center weighted.

Your Budget Leica M7

luketrash, Ebay
25 February 2008
  • Summary: If you are looking at these cameras, you probably already know what they are. I bought my R2A to replace my R3A that had some issues. These cameras are built well externally. Glass and metal everywhere. No hints of the cheapie plastic of modern cameras. The internals are another story. The quality is fine, but it's like looking into a 1980s SLR camera. Parts are plastic and you quickly realize that it's not a Leica. The viewfinders on these cameras are excellent.
