    I'm looking for a good deal on a Bessa R2. I might be interested in a fast normal lens with it (an affordable one). I am looking for an R2 because I would like an M mount (so when I invest in lenses, I can go with M mounts if I want), and am on a budget :smile: I am new to rangefinders, and may consider other options that I haven't thought of. If you have something, please let me know!

    Pipyr, a Bessa R2 is going to be, on average, about the cheapest entry into M-mount rangefinders, and probably one of the best. I bought mine from KEH but I didn't see any currently available there, but keep looking on here and on rangefinderforum.com. Until I can afford a true M-mount lens, I'm using Russian LTM lenses with an adapter. Good times.

    Terry, that's exactly what I plan to do :smile: glad to hear it's working for you. There was a great deal on here a week or so ago, but I didn't realize I would have the $ at this point. Drats! Lol :smile:
