    I would recommend buying a system camera like Hasselblad+150mm lens instead. I can also recommend Rolleiflex SL66 but it will not be as suitable for flash work as the Hassy will be, unless you buy the special lenses with leaf shutter, which are only two (80+150mm). Mamiya should also be a good try, as is the Rollei 600* series, if you have nothing against batteries.
    The Mutar is not easy to find and overpriced IMHO. It is also recommend to use it with f5,6 or smaller to get acceptable image quality. Parallax compensation does only work for objects farther away than 4m and you have to compensate exposure for 1/2 f-stop.
    Best Regards, Benjamin

    They have these things called Rolleinars.

    Next time I'll be sure to use right model.
    So many links that go nowhere, while one that would go nowhere would have sufficed.
    (Your Flicker portfolio appears no to be public)

    You may like to use close-up lenses, and a short lens for 'tight' portraits.
    I don't like either; close-up lenses (even) less than a too short lens. Pay for a great lens, and then put those crappy lenses in front of them? Makes no sense to me.

    I rarely say something like this but
    you really don't have a clue what
    you're talking about on this one.

    There is nothing "crappy" about a
    Rolleinar. I have shot hundreds of
    close headshots with a Tele Rollei
    and a combination of Rolleinars. I
    defy you to improve on the results
    with any camera or lens.

    No: The Mutars do degrade image quality
    -- at least the 0.7x Mutar I have degrades
    the quality of what I get out of my 3.5E.
    If you want to shoot tight, and you do not
    like the perspective of the 75mm lens, and
    you want to shoot with a Rolleiflex, you
    will want a Tele Rolleiflex.

    Those links all work for me.

    People. Listen to Sanders. He knows what he's talking about.

    I love Rolleiflexes, but you can pick up a user 500C/M body, back and 150 for less than a Tele-Rolleiflex. Plus it gives the flexibility of different focal lengths and multiple backs.

    I found I wasn't using the 2 Rolleiflexes I had after I bought a Hasselblad outfit. Just sold them about a month ago.

    Mr. McNew, I might need your advice about the Rolleinars shortly. If I'm not mistaken, I'm going to be given a tele-Rolleiflex as a gift and it's a sure thing that I'd like to use it at portrait distances.

    I remember seeing a video of Richard Avedon doing heads and shoulders portraits with a Rollei. He had the camera on a tripod, focussed, then engaged the subject in conversation and such while shooting. From what I remember, it looked like a Rollei 75/80mm with Rolleinar -- or it could have been a Telerolleiflex.

    I think Mr. Avedon knew how to take portraits.
