    Interesting. I could swear that I've noticed it at further distances. I can line something up in the viewfinder, say the top of a pole at four feet and a door opening in the background. In the image, the pole seems tighter to the top of the opening than I remember in the framing. Of course, this is both a small difference, and more precision than I expect from a TLR. It could also simply be my memory playing games- well that shot isn't as nice as I thought, I know! it must be parallax, not my poor composition!!

    While not technically a Rolleiflex, my Art Deco 'Cord from the mid-'30's has parallax compensation.
