I used a Bessa and then got an M4-P. Problem with the Bessa is that it never hangs straight unless you put a heavy lens on it. The viewfinder is great and at least as bright as the one on my M. For both, ltm and M you can get a Voigtländer Color Skopar 35mm 2.5. It's one of the cheapest lenses around and produces very good results (image related, shot wide open).>>3342973
The only problem I have with the Ikon, as well as M6/7 is the electronics. Is it possible to get an Ikon repaired at a reasonable price?
