Question Bessa R2S NHS version with 50mm f3.5.

What do you other RFF members think of this set?
Bought one last year but haven't used it yet. (I have two Bessa Rs, plus Canon LTMs).
Almost afraid to take it out on the street.
Been in it's case ever since.
And would anyone like to post photos taken by this lens, or the 35mm f2.5 for the R2S?
Thank you.
Seán

Hello maitani.
Thanks for replying.
There's a set on ebay with a buy-it-now price of over £800 sterling,
but this seller always has his items overpriced (in my opinion).
I only paid a little over e500 for mine from a seller in Greece.

The R2S is now sold out at Cameraquest, but some Heliar 50/3.5's should remain according to the site.

I bought the NHS version in 2011, and it is my favourite camera for sure. I'm not sure the NHS-version will get that much of a bigger collector price in the future considering the extremely minor differences between it and the regular version, and thus I have used mine extensively. I've always had the Bessa leather case bottom part on to protect the film door and bottom of the camera, and just recently I have found the first wearing of paint (on the back of the flash shoe).

Some shots taken with it and the Helair 50/3.5 can be found on my Flickr, as well with the Nikkor 35/3.5, 85/2 and Prominent Nokton 50/1.5: http://www.flickr.com/photos/tveljus...7627147298029/

I think that it is a fabulous combination, great for shooting and better afterwards as well. I posted a few examples here:

but can't figure out how to post the photos again here.
Shoot and enjoy.
