Cinema......Congratulations on the purchase. I have 2 bodies and the 40 Distagon, 2 80's, and the 150. The stated caveats are well advised and with care it should not let you down. I've had one body for over 20 years and it's never been serviced. I occasionally check the shutter speeds on both bodies with my tester and they still are within 10% of dead on up to a 60th. I still have about 20 rolls of Verichrome left and will take one out for old times sake. The lenses are obviously sharp but give a "classic" look to prints. I also studied the "Edge of Darkness" by Barry Thornton. I highly recommend his book as he was probably one of the masters of the Rollei SL66. Amazon.com does have copies of it as I just checked their site. Pick one up, you'll be glad you did....................
