Item Description
I know this is a long shot on Pentaxforums, but I'm selling a Voigtlander Bessa-R 35mm film rangefinder camera (ltm, or m39, mount) + Industar-61 50mm f/2.8 lens + Voigtlander Side Grip + Nikon -4 Diopter. I liked this great little camera so much I got myself the newer version with M-mount, but can't keep both.

The camera is great - everything is in excellent condition, except for 2 things - rub mark at the thumb resting bump (can see from the picture) and the pressure plate on the film door is partially held by tape from the rear (apparently the previous owner broke one of the two little pins holding the plate, so I just put a piece of tape in between the pressure plate and film door to hold it - works perfectly and you won't be able to tell there's a problem unless you pull the plate up).

The lens is in good condition - the glass is clear, the focusing is smooth (I relubed it after I purchased it). Focusing is rangefinder-coupled.

The side grip is in great condition - some scratches on the bottom, otherwise nothing wrong with it.

Finally, also included are the body cap (not original) and the Nikon -4 diopter (fits on the viewfinder perfectly, of course). It effectively provides -3 correction, so it is great if you are nearsighted like me.

Batteries included, everything works, and metering is accurate.


















This is just a pic I took for fun with industar-61, held in front of my digital camera.

Another just for fun picture, a thickness comparison K-7 vs Bessa-R, obviously not a "fair" comparison but gives you an idea of how small this camera is.

what version of the Bessa did you get? the Cosina-Voigtländer Bessas are excellent cameras, with really great viewfinders, and the Bessa-R is no exception.

I got Bessa R2A - same viewfinder as R, but with bayonet mount and aperture priority.
