I am quite pleased with the IQ of the Xenotar lens on the 3.5F. Same sharpness as my previous 2.8 Planar, but a different character. I probably would never meet a Rollei I did not like. Amazing what F----ing collectors have done to prices. I offered and paid $1300 for this camera and as far back as when I bought my 2.8F, about ten years ago, I paid $800 (and today 2.8 F's are going for $2000). It speaks to the mechanical and physical beauty of the camera, but also in a very real sense, to supply and demand. On the other hand, it is a good time to buy Hasselblad, as their prices have not gone skyward.
Was a nice weekend for shooting with good light and today, on Sunday, a dreaded day for inside chores and a bit more thorough cleaning of sorts. Benny is sunning himself next to the sliding glass door and giving the vacuum sitting next to him dirty looks for stealing the best spot in the sun.
Got a message that she was reading the same book as me. Made my heart sing with recollection...I didn't think the damn thing had a voice any longer.
