    That's because the Bessa is best--best bang for the buck and then some. I sold my Leica CL but I shall never sell my 2 Bessas!

    One thing I've noticed in random scouting on prices is that very few people who buy Bessa seem to ever, ever, sell them.

    He is. And he still hasn't changed the issue ? Eery.

    This is the Voigtlander Rangefinder forum, is it not?

    Yes, Frank, it is.

    But we are generally a much kinder and gentler site than the one you are used to.

    Also, please keep in mind that the overriding ethos of this site is the preservation and advancement of film. We respect each other's choices in film format (the LF guys are a major factor here and I've learned a lot from them) and our preferred choice of gear (so long as its film-based).

    Welcome - the expanded RF section will be interesting to watch.

    Yes , Frank, the right forum but the title has a smell of provocation anyway.
    Depends on who reads it, it won't be read by CV users only .
    I personally can agree, for me the CV stuff IS he best RF solution too, but i would never title a thread this way .

    Don't get me wrong, I do not appreciate at all the imperial attitude of JT at RFF and the partly dumb totalitarian way of moderating they practise there, and I have left this forum exactly for these reasons , but that you got fired there was a bit your fault too, and it had something to do with this sorta statements, which can be easily interpreted as a provocation.

    My suggestion would be to mark it as a personal opinion at least, but best switch over to something REALLY interesting. Don't count on me when some of the bottom loaders open fire on you

    Oh, it's you---my German buddy---my 1st language since my mom is from Berlin. I did have a Holsten today---coming out of it right about now.

    Bertram, I didn't know you stopped posting over there. Since this board is bassed in NZ, maybe good ol' Desmo will find it.

    I may move to the dark side this evening or tomorrow, depending when the seller contacts me from Burnaby. Nope. Not digital. It will be my last SLR (for the TTL flash thingy).

    I was thinking of a R3M but I'm going to wait for the auto shutter model. (Fingers crossed.)

    The "M" in R3M means MANUAL.
