    Thanks a lot for the advice and examples.

    I saw a portrait at the min focus without Rolleinar's and I'd definitely want/need atleast the weaker one, maybe both to fully utilize the camera. About the Mamiya. I owned a C220 and I just didn't like it, so I sold it for a Rolleiflex which I prefer. But it's a heck of a lot cheaper, that's for sure!

    I haven't been looking at the prices but I'm sure that I can't afford one now... but maybe in the future. I'm surely fancing that idea.

    I remember getting mine for $950 or so a few years ago and thinking I got a bargain. Seeing what the Rolleinar sets are going for now is sadly ridiculous too.

    $950 sounds very good. I figured that I'd need atleast 2k-3k for a good one and rolleinars.

    A nice camera to use once you get over the annoying bit of adding the Rolleinars - I have a spare set of Rolleinar 0.7, the hinged one, if anyone needs them, just not very cheap

    However, in reality, a cheaper option could be a Hbd 500CM with 120/150mm lens and a couple of tubes - But having both I can confirm the TR is much nicer and quieter, too many bits of metal flying around in a Hbd

    I too vote for a C2 or C3 series in lieu of the Rollei unless you are really a serious photographer needing that difference in quality, regardless of how minor. Just too much for the teleRollies for steady use. Basically, they are in the price range of a collector's shelf.
