To add to the good advice above:

1. Don't be cheap and think that you can always get away without having the camera professionally serviced if you want a reliable camera
2. Get and use a lens hood
3. Seriously consider a monopod and a Rolleifix quick release.

I have many years with a Rolleicord and find the Vb, especially, to be a simple and easy camera to use for capture of exceptional imagery.
