Not cheap, but this wasn't more expensive than a P67 with a couple of lenses. Here she is.

I don't think you can get anything more compact than that for 6x7. And you get a viewfinder from hell! Totally brilliant. Up there with the best Leica M finders, in my opinion, which is NOT the case with Fujica/Fujifilm rangefinders.
Looks sweet. Is that a fixed lens?

Yup, an 80/3.5. A good choice for smallness and decent speed, in my opinion.

looks like the Bessa uses that damn annoying winding knob instead of a lever which is annoying from a ergonomic point of view. I will also point out that the mamiya 67II also has a superb viewfinder.

That doesn't bother me at all, and of course it makes the camera smaller and more durable. One less thing that can fail.
