I started with a Bessa 66, also known as a Baby Bessa. Uncoated lenses shouldn't pose much of a problem if the light sources are controlled, even if controlling is a simple as holding up a hand to shade the lens.
A newly CLA'ed Perkeo II just arrived in the mail. I'm taking it wdown to Wiliamsburg VA this weekend and we'll see how it performs. The Bessa 66 is very affordable; the Perkeo II cost cost, and was also worth the extra money for the CLA.
It may be apparent that in MF, I'm more fascinated by the 6x6 square format.
