The Bessa L is a scale focus Leica Screw mount camera with TTL metering, best suited for 35mm and wider lenses. It is ideal for the Voigtlander 12/5.6, 15/4.5, 21/4, 25/4, 28/3.5, and 35/2.5 lenses. Scale focusing means you turn the distance scale on the lens barrel to match the distance of your subject. IF scale focusing is a new idea for you, it's actually fast and easy to get excellent results when shooting wides. Rollei sold over a million Rollei 35 cameras with scale focus 40/2.8 lenses. A viewfinder is not included with the camera.
