Voigtlander Bessa-R is a compact and lightweight 35mm rangefinder camera with mechanical focal plane shutter with 1/2000s top speed, TTL exposure metering and LED finder readout. Bessa-L shares the same specifications but lacks the rangefinder and is therefore primarily intended for use with ultra-wide angle lenses.
