just go back from Photokina and wanted to share some of my findings. Neither Nikon or Canon had any film cameras on display. Fuji showed the GF 670 80mm and GF 670W 50 mm rangefinder cameras in a locked display box, with some enlargements nearby which were poor quality (even admitted by the Fuji rep). The 80mm version is being sold by Voigtlander in Germany for 1999. euros (about $2600. at todays currency rates); both will be available in the U.S. before the end of the year. The 80mm with the lens retracted is more compact than the Mamiya 711 with its lens attached hardly advantageous otherwise. Rollie medium format is still being manufactured by Franke & Heidecke Gmbh and distributed by dhw Fototechnik in Braunschweig. On offer is the new Rolleiflex Hy6 which is a great improvement over the 6008. Both are autofocus but the system is greatly improved on the Hy6 with many other functions. Prices are not for the faint hearted: 8300 euros for the latter camera with the 80mm AF lens. All medium format lenses from 1988 work on both cameras, not necessarily in AF. Also available are 3 TLR cameras in 50/80/135mm form priced from 4200 to 4800 euros. Also available: fancy versions of the 35S The 6008 AF body is 1200 euros
