I like Cosina Bessa cameras, R4M is really easy to use for wide angle lenses.

The Voigtlanders are really great little RF's. I have a pair of Bessa L's and an R2m. I like the mechanical shutter. I have looked into the R4a. This is one camera I would like to have with AE. Since the rangefinder is optimized for wide angle lense it is a perfect street shooter. Aperture priority auto would be a really nice feature with this setup. Koji do you find the focus is pretty accurate with 28mm and wider while using large apertures?

I just got the R4M today from CQ, so can't tell you how accurate the range finder is.
You may have to wait till the next week. My Bessa-R has no focus problem so far.

Initially I was thinking to get R4A, but for wide angle lenses the meter is a bit trickier, so I decided to get R4M. It was a little surprise how the meter works, I like it since I get used to the three color LED indicators.
