TLRs......, you can't beat 'em. Never owned a Rollei, so I can't comment. But I own (and have owned) Mamiya TLRs, namely the C330f. Very quiet and with a shutter release handgrip attached, very stable. Focussing is on a par with other MF systems in terms of viewfinder brightness, but should you need one, then Beatttie do an 'Intenscreen'. The lenses are pretty good too, with (IMO) the 55mm being the best of the bunch. They might very well appeal to one's sense of nostalgia, but then again not everything modern represents progress. BLIGHTY.
