Voigtlander Bessa-R 35mm Leica M39 Mount Rangefinder Camera Body - FP SHUTTER

You are viewing a used Voigtlander Bessa-R 35mm Rangefinder Camera with a Leica M39 mount. This camera has been well used, the body shows signs of heavy use but no abuse or damage. The meter and shutter work perfectly, as does the film advance and self-timer. The Bessa R, introduced in 2000, is a rangefinder camera with a projected frame finder and a Leica M39 screw mount. Although considerably cheaper than any working Leica M series camera, it’s viewfinder is comparable in function and feel. It features manually selectable frames for 35mm/90mm, 50mm, and 75mm lenses. The body, made of polycarbonates, is not comparable to that of a Leica but is durable and doesn’t dent like metal bodies do. All in all it’s an inexpensive, all-manual rangefinder with TTL metering at a significantly lower price than a comparably equipped Leica. If you have been longing to try rangefinder photography, this is a great way to reduce the admission price.
