    Speaking of the CV Bessa cameras, I have each of the first four models! I use the Bessa-L (silver) with a SW Heliar 15/4.5, the Bessa-R (silver) with a Color-Skopar 35/2.5 and the Bessa R2 (olive) with a CZ Biogon 35/2. The R and R2 get the most use, while the L is more of a special purpose set. I have yet to use the Bessa-T (black).

    I had a used Bessa R3, but the shutter jammed twice. Bought a Leica M6. I like the CV lenses. I might try another Bessa R when one comes available used.

    Bessa-L and a Bessa-T - the L has a problem with the film advance which is a real pity, it's a very nice little camera especially with the ultrawide lenses it's made for. I use 15 and 21mm on that, and mostly a Jupiter-9 85/2 lens on the T.

    Oh - and a "real" Bessa, a folding 6x9 one.

    I use a Bessa 6x9 made in 1937. Does that count?

    I ,too, have a Bessa 1 folder. I bought it in 1951 or 1952. I works very well.Nice and light and very compact. It produces 21/4 x 31/4 negative. I used it in high school and college. It is now on my shelf retired but in working order.

    That's a "real" Bessa, as Ole said.

    I have a Bessa R2S, the Nikon lens mount version of the Bessa R2. I use it with the 135mm F3.5 Nikkor and the 50/3.5, 50/1.5, 35/2.5, and 28/3.5 Voigtlander Nikon rangefinder mount lenses. It's a fabulous and fairly rare camera. This camera and the lenses work well are top-notch!
