As long as the seller doesn't want an exorbitant price, I would go for it. Basically a cheaper and better Compur Leica. Before we lost the Wirgin company, its designer put together one last totally new camera which he tried to sell to Kodak and Leitz, but became the Rollei 35. If it had become a LeIca, people would be paying $2000 for used black bodies with brassing. If it had becoMe a Kodak, they would be all over Craigslist. Since it was Rollei, it was a brilliant start, became too expensive to manufacture in Germany So moved to. Singapore and still bankrupted the company. You can fiNd them for $30 if you try hard. Most German or Japanese cameras made before the canon AE1 are worth having. Just for fun.
