Voigtlander Bessa L or Modern Leica A?

First Camera body of new Voigtlander System introduced 1999, Officially Discontinued 5/30/2003

The 1925 Leica A established not only Leica, but what would become 35mm photography.  The 1998 Cosina Voigtlander Bessa L (aka Cosina 107-SW), established today's Cosina Voigtlander rangefinder success story.  IF you take a close look, the similarities are remarkable.  

If you start with the Leica A design and add:

What Do Yah Got? The Cosina Voigtlander Bessa L !
