    Steve,

    I just wanted to add my 2 cents. Can't remember if I told you, but I got an R2A and a couple of lenses about three months ago. Couldn't be happier. It's a blast to use and the lenses are fantastic. Go shoot a few rolls in that Canonet and if it doesn't do anything for you, then don't worry about it. But if you like it, you'll like a Bessa even more.

    Ray, are you listening?

    LOL!
    I can respect that.
    Just make sure you get some film soon, and post some stuff when you can.

    I like your "The Number Three" series. The triplets was my favorite. Are they really triplets?
    I just saw your contact too. It looks like I am your first!
    Yes they really are triplets, or they wouldn't be there, they are the children of a friend from work.

    Hey Brian, what's the difference between the R2A and the R3A?

    Not much.
    The frame lines, the R2 has 35, 50, 75 and 90, while the R3 has 40, 50, 75 and 90.
    HOWEVER, the R3 has a 1:1 viewfinder, which is apparently the only RF ever to have such a such a viewfinder.

    Brian, I just noticed they now have an R4M out with built in parallax projected framelines for 21, 25, 28, 35, and 50mm lenses. See here. A tad more expensive, but looks promising.

    I know I'll never be able to afford a leica, but the R4M would be a nice affordable second choice.

    Interestingly enough, I just got a letter from a local school district wanting to hire me as a classified substitute employee. Hmm...just maybe with that extra money I'll be able to afford one!

    Ra,
    Yeah the R4 came out this past April.
    I am with you about not being to afford or justify a Leica, so I feel that the Bessa is great alternative.
    It sounds the teaching job has come at the right time!

    Go for it, Ray! I think eventually I'll get an R4 as a second body, but there are lots of other things that are higher on my list. The build quality of the Bessas is up to par with my Nikons, so I see no reason to shell out for a Leica...especially with wide angle lenses, where focus accuracy is not as critical.

    Here's a little write up/review of the R2A from Herbert Keppler from .
    http://www.popphoto.com/cameras/3600...lrs-page3.html
    If you look at the entire article, he compares and reviews the Leica M7 and the Zeiss Ikon too.
    I know I like mine!
    Frank seems to as well.
