About the only thing magical about the RolleiMagic these days is their ability to become non-functional bricks. Because of the way they coupled the meter, and the nature of the meter itself, now, if the meter goes kaput (which happens far too frequently) you have an unusable (and unrepairable) camera. About the only thing they might be good for is cannibalizing parts to fix other non-metered Rolleis, and even then that's a crap shoot.
