Subject: Re: [Leica] Minilux alternative, the Rollei QZ

If, but for the price, you're interested in a Rollei QZ, perhaps you could
check into ordering it directly from Germany. I found the following camera
store on the web, and they have a new Rollei listed for $1400, which is 
cheaper than the $1800 that places like B&H seem to be asking.


With the dollar as strong as it is these days, your credit card would probably
give you a great exchange rate. I don't know what issues are involved with
ordering something from another country, but it's an idea.
