Few years ago, I found a brand new Rollei 6003 professional at a bargain price. I had the warranty signed in front of me. It is a camera relatively young, not in the same league of the old Rolleiflex and with a lot of automatic features. But it shares the same problems: find an excellent lab for developing and then scanning in high quality. In Italy is starts to be difficult to get perfect developments of color 6x6 negatives.... So today I use it together with the digital arsenal, I do the same shots (when on a tripod) with both cameras. I pre-scan the negs myself with an Epson V750. Not perfect quality but still ok... But the 3dimensional look of the images is very hard to reproduce even with excellent L graded Canon arsenal... And hey: two shots out of the Rollei made execellent result at the Prix of Photography in Paris this year...
