Personally I would rather see the Rollei TLRs end forever, than have production
moved to China and be tainted by an association with the quality many of that

Very sad news indeed. I was also hoping there would at least be some
solid Chinese bid for the whole lot, which would then be put
dismantled and put back together in China.
This thing purportedly happened with whole steel works when they
closed in my home region (Westphalia) 25 years ago.
Too bad I did not make it to Braunschweig to visit the factory before

I take numerous of photos which I will display later on.
Best regards, and God bless some people from former DHW which still want
