    i've had work done by both, they are both very good+honest repair shop.
    i agree with what has been said above, estimates are free and it is hard to get
    an estimate for anything over the phone without the camera in-hand.

    Is the 3.5F better than the Automat? I seriously doubt you will be able to tell the difference between the photos.
    The 3.5F is a wonderful camera, and I have one, but would be equally happy with a working Automat.
    It's not the camera, it's the lens - and Rolleiflex lenses are all good.

    Jump in, the water is great!

    I just had a work camera repaired by Midstate, free estimate and work done in a week. He now has my Spotmatic for a new meter and overhaul.

    Operation success! Rollei repaired! I have the camera back from Mid-State as of this morning and I haven't shot with it yet but I am pretty pleased with the job...except the fact that one of the screws for the WLF is now missing. It almost makes me wonder what else they could have missed inside of the camera....For a $195 job that was in the shop for three days, I would hope this kind of thing would not be missed but I guess I could have worse things to complain about.

    Call him back, and ask about it, what's wrong with that? Maybe it was never there to begin with, or he has a bucket full of them and he can mail you one.
    Now for a roll of film!

    The latest is that the shutter button sticks in when depressed and the self timer makes the whole camera lock up. I think I'm done with Midstate.

    Unfortunately , maybe the lower price (outfit) was becasue it wasn't really repaired or rebuilt. Still, giving them a chance to stand behind their work might be something to consider. Or a refund. Your entitled to one or the other.
