    I got my Rollei 6008i today. Quite a deal for $2000, I think. Package included:

    6008i
    side grip
    waist level finder
    45 degree finder
    film back
    80mm f2 PQ lens + hood
    180mm f2.8 PQ lens + hood
    1.4x Longar (extender)
    charger and two batteries
    5 filters
    padded case

    Only real issue is that the batteries seem to be playing up but I can replace the cells inside for about $20 per battery.

    It's so nice to have a real viewfinder again (which takes me back to the Blad days), but this time with sophisticated metering and modes. Lovely!

    All I need now is a decent wide. Looking for a 40/3.5 or 50/2.8

    Congratulations, with the lenses & TC, that is an excellent deal. I use the Maha charger -do a google on Maha & Rollei- and find that I get much longer battery life overall and more rolls from each charge than with the Rollei charger. (Note to the anti-battery crowd: performance with the regular charger is stlll very good)
