    What is the lens of your Rolleicord , If it is triotar , it sees the lines like cut with a scissor , that excellent.
    Old cameras creates good habits as someone said , Rolleicord is the Leica of MF. You will never be able to get same quality from 67. I have an other Rollei , Rollei 35s and I saw flickr galleries and it is super with Ektachrome 100 vs. Zeiss is always more light gathering , more sunny lens and saturation and darker pictures tame the highlights and give extraordinary images. Some say Leica is digital amp but Zeiss is a tube amp. Its like swedish art glass , light is flowing in the picture.

    Rolleicord V is equipped with a Zeiss Xenar which is a 4 element Tessar type of lens. It's really really sharp stopped down and also very nice for portraits at f/3.5. It's the one camera I'll take with me for the Xmas holidays.

    My Rolleicord V is the camera I would keep if I could only have one.

    My father used to use a Rolleicord and a Rolleiflex for weddings in the 1970s. As I stated earlier I have a Rolleicord V but there is also a Rolleiflex in my father's collection which I have inherited (although the collection is in display cabinets in my mother's house) so technically I have one of each too. The Rolleiflex shutter is a bit sticky at the slower settings so I need to have that looked at.

    That would not be a lens made by Zeiss, but by Schneider.

    I agree - they're great! I've had at least ten. These days, I am using a Rolleiflex, an old Sekonic and some Plus-X. Slowing down and "being there" is a good exercise for the eyes and the brain.

    Schneider-Kreutznach of course. My mistake, I'm sorry. Tessar is Zeiss and Xenar is Schneider-K's implementation of the same lens. Both are great lenses.

    If i wanted to be completely anal about this, i could point out that it is "Kreuznach" (no "t"). But i don't, so i won't.
