I just got back into Rollei 35s myself.

In the 90s, I had a 35 S (similar to your Classic) that I shot with. I think it was dropped one too many times though, as the results were never up to the standard of the Sonnar lens.

Now, I have a Singapore 35, with the Tessar lens. This one is awesome.

I bought a B 35 for sentimental reasons; my grandpa had one when I was a kid. The selenium light meter is on its last leg, though. I'm on the fence as to whether I should resell this or buy a separate light meter. (it's already enough work, shooting with a Rollei 35, right?!)

Here are a few images from my 35. The film was Tri-X, processed at home with D-76 and "scanned" with the Nikon ES-2 digitizer outfit on my OM-D E-M10 II adapted to my Panasonic 12-60 f/3.5-5.6 lens with a step-up ring. (58-62 mm)

Let me try to embed one here. (full size are at the link above)

I'm just amazed by the sharpness, when I do my part.
