    Found at a moving sale in excellent condition at a price I couldn't refuse.
    Bessa-R with Skopar 35mm f/2.5.

    Love that bright viewfinder!

    Now, of course, I'll have to get more lenses ...

    Very nice camera-but why more lenses? The 35mm is considered the rangefinder standard and look what H. Cartier-Bresson achieved with his Leica and one lens!
    I love going out with my old Nikon F3 and just a 50mm; it really makes me think.

    Yes, I like the 35mm, for sure. It's just that there are so many lenses
    around that will fit it (Leica screw mount).

    I hang out at camera shows and such (the few that are left in my area). So,
    I'm sure I will be finding other glass to try out. :wink:
