My (free to me, years ago) Bronica SQ is a bit worse for wear; the finder is taped on, and spent a little time browsing online what orphaned MF systems are out there. Years ago when I worked in a camera shop I passed on the opportunity to pick up a Mamiya 645J, but my heart was in 6x6. found myself looking at Rollei's system cameras.
I had no idea that Rollei seemingly shrank their 6006 to 35mm, but so it was done. Here's a sales brochure.
What a fascinating setup, all the more so since 35mm system cameras seemingly died out with the Nikon F4. I've never been one for needing different focusing screens, or data backs, or all sorts of different motor drives, but interchangeable film backs? That's my favorite part of shooting MF.
And that lens lineup. I don't want to think about how heavy or pricey that 1000/5.5 was.
Did anyone have one of these? I'm curious on how it is to use, and how it fared in the market back when it was new. I can imagine that, back then, Canon/Nikon/Contax had a lot of these features in a more compact box, or one might just jump straight to MF for all the hassle.
