    Birthday GAS, plz help, Bessa content

    Today is my birthday and since my GF got me boots instead of a camera I'm stuck with a case of GAS .....

    Really really really want a Bessa R4A/M with a 25mm 4/P

    Someone talk me out of it!

    (btw, the boots are really nice and I needed them for stomping around in the mud photographing, so I'm just using her for an excuse )

    1. The power of GAS is infinite.
    2. You cannot resist the power of GAS.
    3. You have spent your adult life working to earn money for things others needed or wanted. Now is the time to do something for yourself. You deserve to have it. Buy it NOW!
    4. If you will get enjoyment owning and using it, buy it.

    This advice is freely given. Enjoy!!

    I find it funny that the A/M's are the same price ... asked Stephen G about it and he said "that's the set pricing, but if it makes you happy I can charge you more for an A" hehe

    Happy birthday-- enjoy the new Bessa, whichever one you get. BTW, if you get one and feel guilty about it, send it to me(my b'day was Friday)and wish me a happy b'day.

    I find this one works well for me, at least until I've overused it--then I have to let it rest for a while.

    Congrats to the OP on the new Bessa (assuming you've already rationalized it and placed the order)! I've been looking at one of those (I've been looking at one of everything).

    Well, after Saturday afternoon's storm, you should have plenty of mud to stomp around in.

    Happy belated birthday.

    Yes the storm here was bad ... couple of my neighbors had some large trees come down.

    And no, I haven't ordered it.

    Yet.

    Enjoy the Bessa. FWIW...based on personal experience: you are experiencing the 1st of many RF GAS episodes. A fat wallet or high credit limit seems to be the best cure.

    Best regards & happy bd,
