Apologies if this has been covered on this forum in the past, but I can't find any direct references to it.

I'm thinking of buying a Bessa R4M, because of its compact size, and would be a good camera to take on travels with just a 35mm or 28mm lens. However, I've read in a couple of reviews that because of the short rangefinder distance, accurate focusing with 35mm-50mm lenses isnt possible, or is at least very difficult. Can anyone share their personal experiences of this, and is it really much of a problem? Or is it just reviewers trying to think of something negative to say just to balance their reviews up?
