    I have been reading this r2m is the latest of the bessa line. I am going to buy one because it also comes with a good lense. What size of lense filters must I get? Does b+w or hoya makes a rubber lense hood for it?

    If you're talking about the 50/2 Heliar that comes in a set with the R2M, then it takes 39mm filters. A metal lens hood comes with the set. I don't know about rubber lens hoods.

    LENS !

    the Bessa R2M and R3M come with the 50/2 Heliar lens.

    Cosina/Voigtlander make a nice lens hood for the 50/2 Heliar.

    The r2m comes with a lense hood? This makes me to need filters only.

    What is a lense?

    Do you mean lens?

    My R3M came with a lens hood

    "lense" must be the Canadian spelling for "lens", Tom. :wink:

    (Frank... go easy on Tom... his heart might not hold up to too much contravery over spelling.)

    Well Brian, I'm certainly contravery intolerant.

    Yes, yes, Andy... of course you spelled it correct and I didn't (twice). But don't you pronounce it the way I spelled it rather than the way it is really spelled? :D

    Here, too, though fewer and fewer people can spell.

    I made a nice roasted chicken on the Weber today. Use indirect heating.

    Not to create any controversy here but what kind of wine do you like with your roasted chicken?

    Dear Claire,

    For me, it's one of the few things a full-bodied oaked Chardonnay actually goes with. Generally I tend to be of the ABC school -- Anything But Chardonnay.

    Cheers,

    R.

    But what about white Burgundies? Wow! Drink a good one, and you'll scratch your head wondering what the California winemakers are doing to that poor grape.

    As to the original Frank question, my thought is : vapor-lock, sideways, and Tuesday morning, early.

    I'll drink to that -- but they're expensive. I've tried a fair amount of Chardonnay over the last 40 years (and as I recall it's one of the principal grapes in Champagnes) but the oaked ones are mostly awful with most things.

    Cheers,

    Roger

    I agree. In our household, we refer to most California Chards as 'Oak Bombs'. Sort of the same level of taste experience as a tub of whipped margarine.

    What do you mean "grape" ?? Bourgogne is a wine-producing area of France. You cannot produce a "Burgundy" (Bourgogne) elsewhere...

    On the other hand, I scratch my head and wonder what the California winemakers are doing anyway... :confused:

    The most usual grape for white Burgundy is the Chardonnay, with the Aligote regarded as a distinct second choice.

    Cheers,

    Making sure they don't put anything in a bottle that tastes like Retsina.

    I would agree that Retsina is an acquired taste, but I have acquired it.

    Sadly, the Retsina we can easily get around here is pretty wimpy. It used to be better, and there used to be more choice. It is surprising, because there is a large Greek contingent in and about our community, and a lot of choice in Greek food, some of which I am led to understand is quite authentic.

    All I know is that I like Greek food, and I like Retsina, and the two together are better than the sum of the parts (IMHO).

    Matt

    Let me help bring the discussion back to rangefinder cameras: My favorite rangefinder is a Kodak Retsina IIIc. Do you think that will help?
