The difference is in the viewfinder magnification. The rangefinder base is the same as the other Rs.

That is short rangefinder base problem I was told.
That's an adjustment issue that's not related to how wide the rangefinder base is. It's fairly common for the Bessas to get bumped out of alignment. Do a search here for info on a DIY fix. http://www.rangefinderforum.com/foru...splay.php?f=28
