[rollei_list] Re: OT Re: new Zeiss Ikon- a hollow construct?

Austin, it's obvious the Rolleiflex is a better camera than others to
me, otherwise I wouldn't be a Rollei user, but it's better for my
photography, for the way I see the photography as activity, there are
better cameras if you need to capture a lyon hunting in the Kalahari,
a SLR film or digital is the best tool for that task.

A Rollei 35 with a Sonnar 2.8 lens is as capable as any Leica to take
an excellent photograph and even an unreliable Rollei SL 35 with a
Planar Zeiss lens can take images from the highest quality if working
right, but it does not mean that the Leica is not a very good camera
