    People seem to think the same thing about my Rolleicord Va. I really don't get it.

    Nikon F... Just got to love the sexy, clean lines of an F with the nonmeter prism...

    Or perhaps my Annie Speed Graphic;

    That Annie Speed is really cool!. My pre-Anny Speed, held together with Gaffer's tape and a prayer is a show stopper. I love the looks of people when they ask if it is real. I also get the looks when I have my IIIf or my M2.

    Back in the '90s I used to go to these photo expos in the UK (Focus on Imaging?) and I'd always check out the gold plated, diamond encrusted Rollei 35s. They'd be behind thick glass with some burly security guard standing close by. God knows how much they cost, probably bought by 3rd world tinpot tyrants looking for stuff in sink their cash into. Anyway, I suppose they were 'bling'.

    Correction- "Probably bought by third world tyrants looking for stuff to sink our aid cash into.

    Yes, quite right. And if not our cash, then the Soviet Union's.
