    I got the 635 out today and ran two rolls through it. I must say, this thing rocks my world!! It handles so nicely! Now I know why Rollei lovers love Rolleis! A TLR this size, with even BETTER lenses...what a dream! Can't wait to develop these rolls tonight!

    Better than a Rollei.

    Sounds like a Troll to me.

    Glad you are happy with your 635. Let me know if you ever want a 127 Yashika TLR. Nice camera but... why?

    No, I meant a TLR with better lenses, as in the Rollei. In other words, if I love the Yashica like I do, I can only imagine how much I would enjoy a Rollei!

    Check out this photo of a photo of my still wet and hanging to dry negatives! I can't WAIT to print these. 635 + TMAX 100.

    Fair enough. Could be read both ways.

    Good luck with the 635.

    Chris, it might surprise you that in some ways I'd rather use my Yashicamat 124 than my Rolleifle with it's Xenotar. It's because the Yashicamat lens is very capable when used stopped down and the value is considerably less so I'm much happier carrying the camera anywhere and I don't need to treat it as preciously.

    The most important thing is to have fun using the camera, when you've worn it out then get a Rolleiflex

    It's very rare that I feel this way about ANY camera that I buy... But right now this 635 makes me feel like a kid who wants to sleep with a new toy under his pillow!!

    I wouldn't suggest that with a TLR - you are bound to wake up with a sore neck!
