    I had a Rollei and a Mamiya TLR for a while. Honestly, they never did anything for me and they sat on the shelf. Ended up going getting rid of both of them and then upgrading my Hassy and Mamiya 7 kits. For me, both of them to be a lot more versatile and user friendly than any TLR..

    Honestly, it all boils down to what works best for you.

    He might have given you one Sanders, but twenty odd years ago they were very expensive and far beyond my pocket.

    I never left my Tele Rolleiflex with its 135/4 Zeiss Sonnar.

    And I never left any of my other Rolleiflexes, either.

    I have always been on an extremely limited budget and all my Rolleiflexes have been stop gaps or stepping stones to another better one later when I have some money to spend on one. Luckily every Rolleiflex I ever sold, I sold for a profit. Now I have the best, the top of the heap in 80mm. A late 2.8F and a new 2.8FX. I keep a Pentax 67 around for the wide angle and the telephoto, but I am starting to wonder if I would be happier if I sold my Pentax 67 and lenses and acquired either a Rolleiwide or a Tele Rollei. The Tele would make more sense in the way my vision works, but a wide is more logical in terms of capability since you can crop the 80mm image to a tele proportion but there is no cropping that will turn a normal into a wide. I think the Tele would win out due largely to Sanders' image quality.

    My thoughts exactly. While I have more than enough cameras, I do like my Rollei 3.5 and my Durst 606. Great combination!

    Not at all, I like my Rolleiflex alot, but I just use it for handheld photography, my favourite is my Hasselblad system, I like to have alot of possibilities at my disposal (Optics, magazines, finders, etc etc etc), and sorry Rollei lovers, Rolleis are limited cameras in that sense.
