    I still have one that I purchased for my own personal use. Don't get me wrong, I am not unhappy with it. I was asking about the Zone VI because it is a lighter camera.

    Hey I was not saying that they are not good cameras, only that considering the age and use that many (but not all of course) have had, one would need to be very careful in buying, especially over e-bay where you do not have a chance to wiggle bits for slack etc! I very much enjoy my 1950s rolleicord VA, but personally like to keep the vintage kit for occassional optional use rather than as the mainstay. Its a personal thing and it is what gives us confidence that matters. I am certainly inclined towards older lenses, one of my favourites being a razor sharp 203 ektar in prontor SVS shutter, but then again another favourite is my 90mm f8 nikkor.....

    On the subject of manipulating the front standard, I have tilted the standard back and then returned the lens panel to vertical and I am still not close to 8cm.....
