The Bessa R4 models take currently an island position in the market with its finder which is integrated with a 21mm illuminated frame and so it appeals to wide angle lovers. The Bessa R4M is a real goody for all fans of puristical range finder cameras. Here, the shutter speed (1 – 1/2000s) will be educated absolutely mechanical.

The photographer takes the settings of time and aperture, though an LED scale in the finder helps him. A high robust wide angle tool for exciting pictures in finest Voigtländer quality.

Lenses with M39 mount dol need an adequate adapter.
