Between a Rolleiflex MX-EVS, 2.8C, Minolta Autocord, and two Rolleicord V's, I'd have to honestly say I liked my last Rolleicord V best. Simplicity and Handling just suited me best.

I wasn't gonna say it, but Bill jumped in with it- TLR is less than ideal for active brats. But lest I complain too loud, it's miles and miles and miles better than my digital. My 31/2 year old is...
