I just saw a listing for a Bessa R and also a voigtlander Nokton 50mm f1.5 (ltm) and while the Nokton sounds great I'm a little weary of the Bessa R.

I've looked all over the Internet and the reviews regarding long term are mixed at best. But I wanted to get a second opinion from fellow APUGers here to see if the Bessa R is an okay camera in the long term.

The reason why the Bessa R and not a Leica is affordability. If the Bessa R isn't that great I will just continue building up my SLR line.

Thoughts on a buying a used Bessa R?
