I've questioned statements of Prochnow's on a number of occasions. I think
he is right on most stuff, particularly the overall history, but sometimes
wrong on technical details.
I don't have all of his books, just the one on TLR, the one on Rollei 35,
and the one on SLX/6000.
Now I'll have to find and buy an XF35 just to see if my memory of the
innards is correct.
