    Yes they dropped that Auto-mat function. Which I am glad of. I feel much more confident the FX is going to stop at frame #1 after I line up the arrows than I do with the feeler roll which has blasted right through whole rolls enough to make me worry every time.

    Remember that the Tessar in the T was recomputed at the same time as that in the Contaflex. It is an excellent lens with a different signature to both the previous Tessars and the Planars.

    Own a Rolleiflex T and cannot complain about it, itīs small and lightweight. I think itīs the best Rollei you can get for small money.
    Its exp-time-aperture-coupling is something one should get used to, indeed. The Rolleicord isnīt worse but itīs shutter isnīt
    coupled with the film transport, so you have to think of setting both before taking pictures. I didnīt buy it back then because
    I was shure I would forget either

    I believe that interchangeable screens can be fitted to the cameras with removable hoods, which are all the F's plus the E2 and E3.

    I don't know what model Rolleiflex I have, but it has a Tessar lens. I can honestly not tell a difference in image quality between it and my 80mm Planar that's on my Hasselblad. Sanders is right, they are all truly excellent cameras and all of them have excellent lenses.

    That was a feature that I LOVED about my Rollei T! I used a Gossen Luna Pro meter, and it was just so simple to read the exposure index from the meter, set it on the camera, then choose a shutter speed/aperture combination that was most appropriate for the circumstances. It helped me learn about exposure.

    I was disappointed when I later bought a 2.8F and learned that it had the two wheels instead.

    I had the Rollei T for a number of years... not sure why I sold it since it was a great camera.
    Now I use the GX.... very happy but they're not giving them away.
