    If you were really pimped out with Rolleis then you would have a normal focal length Rollei, a wide angle Rollei and a tele-Rollei hanging around your neck. Now THAT would be pimped out in Rolleis!

    Good point.. That would be a beautiful piece of neck jewelry.

Parts and service easily and cheerfully available? With a modern Fuji EBC coated lens that is so sharp the photos will make your eyes bleed? And a killer accurate electronic shutter? That is so quiet it's impossible to even hear from six inches away? And the whole tomato can be slipped into an oversized coat pocket?

    Geez, only a few years ago who would have thought such a thing would even be available ever again? Me thinks the 'cool' factor needle has been pinned. Gads, in a pinch the thing is even a serviceable chick magnet that doesn't require puppy food...

    Well, it is a nice camera. But it's been a long, cold winter for everyone. Just trying to write something a little more entertaining to read than the standard fare. I try to do that a lot around here. Not always sure how well it flies...

    They're beautifully designed too, same guy who designed the first Saab concept car did the 500 series. There are similarities between the two if you compare them.

    Rolleiflexen of all sorts...

    There's loads more, but that gets rid of the easiest ones.
    Sure,both are a babe magnet.the real reason for me to go into photography.

    Ralph is right, any Hasselblad from the 500 series must be the coolest medium format ever.

    In my honest opinion I've yet to see anything that looks cooler than an RB67 or RZ67, just find me another MF camera with as many buttons, switches, levers, knobs, and other assorted doodads. Except maybe the GX680, but it's battery dependent which is not my cup of tea.

    I have an old beat up Rollei Automat that gets its fair share of comments when I use it, but I recently fell in love with the Kowa 6. I just got one and developed the negatives. Really lives up to the "Japanese Hasselblad" moniker that gets tossed around. Maybe not so much mechanically (soft gearing and jam prone from time to time, but the glass in my opinion is top notch.

    I fail to understand the mentality of a person whose vocabulary is limited in terms of approbation to "cool".
