I bought two "silver anniversary" Rollei 35S cameras in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia in 1988 for about $125 each -- I wanted to use the pair of them for stereo photographs. Sadly, I managed to leave one in the glove box of a Hertz rental, and of course they guys there had no idea where it was when I went back 15 minutes later to retrieve it. Still got the other one, though, and as we all agree the lens is wonderful. Guesstimation focusing is a skill that can be developed, I've found. Great camera.
