Wanting a Voigtländer Bessa 11.

What is my best lens choice for B&W work. Also the eyepiece looks terribly small, is it an issue as I have never had one of these cameras in my hands.

The Color heliar is the best lens choice in general. The Apo Lanthar would be nice but the prices are silly. The eyepiece is small, no doubt, but its' usable as long as it's clean. This is easily the best/most elegantly designed and built 6x9 folder, you can tell these were top of the line at the time (and still.) I've thought about selling mine but every time I use it I remember why I like it so much...

This fellow lives close to me and he's a real gent, with excellent gear. I've bought from him several times.
The above Bessa II with Color-Heliar did not sell last week...
