Aging Camera, kinda like Aging Relatives................
There are similarities between the "aging" process for both cameras and people, how do you keep them vital and relevant as they age. In your financial analysis, think of what you might sink into the Rollei as a pre-payment on another 40 years of usage. Right now it is probably 60 years or so old, so the CLA and repairs are like a visit to the "fountain of Youth" for the Rollei.
