    I don't know about the rollei but the Pentax has mirror lock up and all it does is pre release the mirror, but during the exposure the shutter has to move horizontally and causes some shake.

    Some say he shutter will and some say it won't, cause problems. I never had bad problems but Its there.


    Unlike the hasselblad that has a shutter in the lens that does not cause shake.

    Hasselblad 500CM / ELM + 150mm. Sonnar is all you need or 250mm. for tight head shots but the quality is so good from the 150mm. you could crop. Go Hasselblad. BTW, I am not against Rollei. I use a Rolleiflex 3.5f TLR.
    I'm into painting with light - NOT painting by numbers!

    Of course SL66 has a mirror lock up. As for the concerns regarding vibration due to the focal plane shutter: I can assure you that it is well dampened!

    Proud owner since 8 months of this elegant beast. Now saving(or rob a bank) for the 50 and 150mm. Everything you want from a camera is here; ok flash sucks, but you can use available light (as I did in the museum 1/30 no tripod) or/and tell those f...s to sit still happy search.

    Also check out Sanders McNew's work to see what he does with a Tele-Rollei and attachments.

    I bought my Mutars for 800€ (around $1000) both together some years ago . The M1,5 was in an excellent shape with sun shield and leather case. The M0,7 was in an optical good shape, but came without shield and case and has a partial broken front filter ring.

    Nice camera - I've had mine for about the same time and I love it. Sounds crazy, but it's my walk-around camera now! All the same, I don't like shooting below 1/125 handheld, and I have pretty steady hands. All depends on how large you want to print, of course. Ultimately, this is a great tripod camera. Should people buy one? My feeling is, if you think the tilt function is a gimmick, then the SL66 is probably not for you, and you need something simpler, like a Hasselblad.

    I am a professional photographer and have been using a Rolleiflex 6008 for more than 20 years. This is an extremely reliable camera (at some point it replaced Hasselblad in the NASA programs). It has Zeiss and Schneider equvalents to the major Hasselblad lenses and it is much more convenient to use. It has all the frills you can imagine (mirror lock-up; three types of measuring light, several types of automatic mode; etc). Also it is easier to load. But the most surprising point: the second hand you can find it much cheaper than Hasselblad or SL66.
