While not quite Leica premium, Rolleiflex is a premium brand. Which means you pay a lot (sometimes too much) for what you get. Any Rollei with a fast lens (2.8 is fast in the medium format world) is expensive. Any recent Rollei is expensive. Rare or collectable Rolleis are stupid expensive.
But older, slower-lensed Rolleis are in the Yashica and Mamiya TLR price range (around £250), so you can experience Rolleiflex joy (and there is joy to be had) at a reasonable price.
I wrote about my Canon SLR collection recently, mentioning that I’d like a T50.
Now, thanks to a camera swap with the very excellent Frank Lehnen, I’ve got one. (Frank got a not-very-compact Ricoh zoom compact. A nice camera… but I think I got the best end of the swap. Hope Frank doesn’t mind.)
