A 35SE is also on my shelf and goes with me if I wan't to travel light. The sonnar is really extraordinary and the main reason why I can hardly imagine to part with it. But by todays standards the Rollei 35 isn't small and certainly not light and feels like a small brick when you hold a mju II in your other hand. The lighmeter is also a bit dated with its low sensitivity and the interface is auto-nothing. Nevertheless, a very fine camera.
