I believe there are now two "Rolleis": one selling rebadged P&S digital
cameras, and the original factory bought back by descendants of Franke
and Heidecke:

They make 3 TLR models as well as digital and film SLRs sold under their
own and other people's names.  (And a monorail camera I had not heard of
but just saw on their website.)
