    A company making money selling the left over inventory of a bankrupt company?
    Telling fibs, like Franke and Heidecke Mk II being the same company as the one founded in 1920? Failing to mention the still existing Rollei company (Rollei doesn't need rebirthing - The Danish company that has been the owner of Rollei for 'ages' now is doing well)?
    I could go on, and on, and on. But for now, let's wait and see.

    Eyes too?
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    Yes, eyes too.
    You'll have to try harder than that though. Try this

    I read something about a new rollei 35 but didn't know anything about it, now I understand it better.
    But, I think also the price of the rollei 35 was rather high...

    I do not understand how high-end camera companies who make commercial cameras, like SINAR, Rollei, and Hasselblad can expect to compete with their own used markets with the older-style cameras, e.g. Hassy 6x6 film camera, Rollei TLRs, SINAR F2s and P2s, etc. I understand the viability of the digital stuff, like the Hy6, the P3, the Hassy H system, etc., but I don't see how the other stuff can be profitable. Who, exactly, is buying enough of it to make it so? Who today buys a brand new $5,000 TLR if they want to shoot a TLR, as opposed to just buying and servicing a used one for a grand or two, tops? How about a SINAR P2? Who spends $8,000 on a body only, when you can get a used kit with many lenses and accessories for a few grand?

    The SL66 is from 1966 (just as is the Rollei 35, by the way), way before digital.

    You were perhaps thinking about the Hy6, which isn't a Rollei product.

    But good question.
