Combining the versatility of the Voigtlander rangefinder body with the
M-Bayonet lens mount, the Voigtlander Bessa R2 offers centre-weighted TTL
metering, fast lens interchange and a bright direct vision viewfinder.
The new Bessa R2 Body has a magnesium alloy top and bottom plate and back
door for a substantial classic camera feel. Further enhancements include brass
top deck fittings.
Finished in either black or olive green, the robust yet lightweight R2 is
able to withstand professional use in harsh conditions.
The camera is a totally manual operation 35mm camera with a double focal
plane metal shutter and built in centre weighted average TTL metering, with a
three LED 'traffic light' indicator system. It features a flash sync, of 1/125
sec and a top shutter speed of 1/2000th sec. The optional rapid trigger winder
gives continuous shooting without the need for battery power.
The built-in viewfinder is adjustable for 35mm, 50mm, 75mm and 90mm
Current Voigtlander users will still be able to use the R2 with Voigtlander L
range of screw lenses using its L-M bayonet adapter.
