Ffordes appear to have done it again!
A beautiful black Rollei 35 arrived well-packed and presented this morning. If anything their description is a bit pessimistic; E++ and it's immaculate with a tiny, tiny ding in one side (if you didn't know it was there you'd be hard pressed to find it). All controls smooth, lens clean and clear, meter about a stop optimistic (compared with my WestonMaster) which I reckon is down to voltage discrepency (I'll just change the ISO setting from 400 to 200).
Loading film was a little odd. The flip down pressure plate nearly fooled me (not difficult) and I won't be too surprised if I haven't threaded it correctly (ah, the fun of learning new kit!).
Looking forward to using this little gem in anger!
EDIT (after putting half a roll through) - Lovely to use, great little viewfinder, everything silky smooth and feeling good. I just wish I'd brought that little rangefinder in today to check my distance guesses!
