The Voigtländer Bessa-T is one of the earlier models in Cosina’s revivalist lineup of handsomely designed rangefinder cameras.  Produced soon after the Bessa-L and the Bessa-R, the T sported a slightly stronger retro-classic aesthetic than the other two models in addition to being the first of the modern Voigtländers to use the Leica M mount […]
