    Hi All,

    I just bought a Bessa-T, to complement my two R's and two L's. How do you find the camera works in practice (I bought it to use with high-speed lenses).
    How is the Trigger Winder, many consider it a necessity with heavier lenses.
    Thanks for your replies!

    I like it just fine! I didn't get the trigger winder, though. I've managed to use the winding knob on an old FED-2, so the "modern" winder is advanced enough for me.

    I bought the T as a supplement to the L and partial replacement for the FED, since I have a few longer lenses I'd like to use. Focus is very easy, and very precise. Even with the 135mm f:4 Hektor wide open.

    Like mine a lot, only niggle - no meter switch - easy to fire shutter accidentally.
