The Bessa R3A is one of the consistent further developments of Bessa R2.

The determining advantage is the aperture priority. You choose the requested aperture and the camera shows you automatically in the view-finder LED the adapted shutter speed. The Bessa R3A with its 1:1 finder is particularly suitable for bright telephoto lenses. The camera affords more precision for portrait photography and everywhere, where large focal distance can be used, because of the increase of effective baseline for distance measuring. You can use at this body lenses of the rightward listing. Any other Classic Collection Lense must use an adapter.

Lenses with M39 mount do need an adequate adapter.
