Subject: [Leica] Bessa R Bait and Switch
Date: Tue, 4 Apr 2000 09:31:55 -0400

This is the good old practice of bait and switch. Besides, AAA is well
known for this kind of shit. They tried to sell me a Rollei Prego for my
wife without batteries, case, strap for the same amount as camera world of
oregon would sell the complete kit. Somebody should sue these crooks.

AND   does Voigtlander produce TWO lens lines?  One for the Bessa-L and one
for the Bessa-R.???  AAA camera on the net offers the "Colour Heliar 75
f2.5" at $398, but when I called, they said the R version is $470 not the
listed $398.  What gives??  Do the Bessa-R lenses have a 'cam' or something
that couples with the rangefinder that the 75mm Colour Heliar for the
Bessa-L does not???!  What's up with that!??  Kent
