Introduced in 1999, the Voigtländer Bessa L was the first camera model manufactured by Cosina Co., Ltd. under the Voigtländer brand name.
The Bessa L is a scale focus camera body with a screw thread mount and through-the-lens (TTL) metering. It was introduced with 15mm and 25mm Voigtländer 39mm screw lenses, but it is also compatible with other screw mount lenses.
