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.
So, Adobe aren’t supporting desktop, pay-once for your license Lightroom anymore. I’ve been using Lightroom since 2007. So my first reaction was to panic. I want supported software. I don’t want to pay a subscription.
What do I use instead? I tried the two most promising alternatives, and the new Lightroom.
