I came to the world of Rangefinder photography through an inheritance of equipment, my Leica M3 is a user but also has sentimental value that would cause me to freak if it got seriously damaged. That is the downside of having equipment that is also a family heirloom. I am starting a fund/war-chest for a second M-bayonet body I can take out into the wilds and not worry so much. So should it be a Voightlander Bessa R2a or an old Leica M body 2/3/4?
This purchase is not going to be made in the near term so I have time to weigh the pros and cons of both cameras. Your input would be greatly appreciated.
