Tom, I also have an old Rolliecord 3.5 Xenar. I find it very dependable
and much lighter to pack around than my Pentax 67. I have a Rollei 35 3.5
Tessar and find it an excellent lens but agree that the camera is a bit
slow to use due to the collapsing lens and the light meter. Good opotics
on both these Rolleis though. I have a number of 35's and prefer to use a
Nikon Lite touch 28mm point & shoot for all the family and holiday shots.
I can get excellent 8X10 color and b&w from it as well as good 11X14's
now and then. Other good 35 rf cameras are the Canonet series, Konica 35s
and almost anything made by Olympus. The older cameras used mercury
batteries but most have a true manual mode too. I picked up a lifetime
supply of mercuries in U.K. last summer for 65p each at Jessops.
