Answer to question 1: The waist-level finder has a flip-up magnifier built into it. Same with every Rollei TLR I've seen. The reason to use it is that it enables seeing the ground glass screen better and makes it easier to focus.

Answer to question2: If you'd rather buy or use a new camera then you should do that. But I, too, like both the performance and sound of the 501/CM rather than the heavier RB/RZ!
