Subject: Re: [Leica] Bessa-T - reliability? longevity?

Okay, for the first time I now actually want a Bessa camera. I disagree with
Tom in that I think it is the perfect mount for the Leica super wides (21
and 24) in low light. I much too "shaky" to switch finders when using a 50/1
or 75/1.4. However my question is how good a camera is it mechanically? I
assume it is going to be similarly priced to the Bessa-R and you have to
keep in mind an user M can be purchased for not that much more (and that the
M will last almost indefinitely with periodic CLAs).

So all you Bessa users out there, how reliable has the camera been for you?
