    Well here's a snap of the 15th century Portuguese Caravel replica a guy made in his back yard, moored in Geelong a few weeks ago, from a roll of HP5+ I bought minutes earlier from an astonishingly well stocked (with Ilford materials) local photo store (Camera House Geelong). In good light, with ISO400 film - zone focusing is kind of easy, and even the cheaper tessar lens is so sharp...

    Very nice.
    Is it smaller than the XA?

    Turns out there is not much difference size-wise. They weigh about the same, and the Rollei is a smidge taller, and its lens sticks out perhaps a millimetre or two more in the folded position... What you lose in rangefinder 'certainty' you gain in manual control and a flash hotshoe, albeit on the bottom...

    Just got mine AFTER a 2 week trip through Thailand and Cambodia. I went the day before leaving, guy had like 6 of them and none of them worked, so he tried to Frankenstein one for me before leaving, said it'd be ready at 1pm (flight was at 9). It wasn't. He managed to mix parts from a bunch of them and get one working upon my return.

    Unfortunately, the lens is fungussed to hell (if that's a word, which I'm sure it isn't), and the meter needle arm doesn't work. I read about someone saying you can somehow take it apart and just wiggle it, sometimes they get stuck, but I'm not bold enough to try it. Rangefinder patch is incredibly dim, as well, but works enough to be semi-helpful in bright sunlight. Have like 4-5 pictures on the test roll -- maybe I'll try and finish it off and get it dev'd/scanned tomorrow...

    I'm not too optimistic about the lens, though

    Very interesting. Looks like you get a real iris too

    Pretty Cool. Can you get those Rollei's for $10-$30 like the XA?

    The prices vary wildly - whereupon the early German ones are wildly expensive, and the Singapore ones not so much. I paid about CHF100 for mine, which is on the expensive side - but in my defence, I was on holidays, and it was a really nice camera shop...
