I don't really know how the current prices for used equipment are in Germany (I left the home country some ten years ago ). But aren't Rollei's not more common in Europe? Maybe they would be another alternative for your entry into the world of 6x6 SLR cameras.
To each their own I guess . I could never stand the bullet hole versions, and am actually much faster loading the newer backs (years of assisting in a commercial studio hones the skills ).Originally Posted by mikebarger
