Selling Bessa R...

I've advertised this on the photography forum and just in case anyone here is interested I thought I'd post here too but offer it at a slightly cheaper price of 350 on strict understanding that it's for use and not to be split into a body and lens and sold on fleebay for profit.









And for the nerdy ones here    all shots taken with my Canon Eos 20D at ISO 800 with a Sigma 50mm f1.4 at f3.2.

It's a beauty, I hope it goes to a good home.

It is lovely and I've been playing with it today, but it's not a toy and I've not shot any film for months. I thought I'd use the Bessa but since getting the GF1 I haven't.

How are you getting along with the GF1? My G1 is great. I just got an adaptor to use it with my Sony/Minolta lenses. The fold out screen shod be good for macro shots using my Tamron 90mm macro. The small flange distance of the micro 4/3 system means adaptors are available for pretty much every lens type/system.

The GF1 is great. An optical view finder and better higher ISO performance would be nice as would in body IS but even without these things I think it's the best non SLR digital camera I've ever tried. It really can replace a quality film camera like a Bessa, Cononete etc...

I don't think that I'll bother with additional lenses. I just have the 20mm f1.7 and a fixed "standard" lens is all that many old film cameras had so keeping it simple fits in with my view that the GF1 is at it's best when viewed as a replacemant for a smallish camera with a prime lens.

I have thought about getting a G1 or whatever the current model is but I think that I probably have enough digital cameras now.

The electronic viewfinder in the g1 is great - better than an optical one in
low-light conditions as it brightens automatically. Mine came with a 14-45mm zoom lens but I bought the 20mm f1.7 which is a great lens. The 14-45 is way better than the kit lenses with other slrs at the same price. I love the wee 20mm though. I plan to get a 4/3 adaptor next year so I can borrow my step-dad's Panasonic/Leica f2.8 14-50.
