    Buy a Bessa, put Leica glass on it (what I have done) and with the money you save, get some new LF lenses. Just get a Dyno labeller and stick Leica over the Bessa name. Everyone will think it's some new secret model you testing.

    Can support the Bessa idea, I use one, with both Leica and Viogtlander (Cossina) glass. Like it.

    Is that sort of like sticking a Harley-Davidson badge on a Yamaha? :P

    seriously though, the Bessa bodies that I've seen look mighty nice.

    Victor I had to sacrifice my M6 for an 8x10 setup. I'll definitely get one again or do as Eric stated...

    sean and eric, i can speak of bessa only great things, really. i have learned the rf photography on it and many of my best photos are done with bessa and noktons and skopars and ultrons, so i have a very special emotional relation with bessa. but if u have money for leica - leica is much much better in everything. the question is - can u justify the expenses of leica, do u need the quality of it and do u know how to push it, or just do u have extra $$$.
