Ah, but Rollei did make a 6x6SLR!
And it uses the same Zeiss glass as Victor did.
Plus built in tilt/shift!
Plus you can mount the lenses back asswards for micromacro!! (forget about 
filters though).
Plus one back can shoot 120 or 220.
Plus the lenses are lighter because no leaf shutters.
Lots of plusses there for even greater bargain basement prices...

Not sure if this was whild Mr. Heidecke was alive, but it sure nudged up 
against the Hassy...

Great for eventual digital 6x6 too

I think Hassy's and Rollies are not adversarial

There's the famous picture of Victor Hasselblad with the camera with his
name on it and Paul Heidecke Mr. Rolleiflex.

Put a back on a Hasselblad and shoot medium format digital the old fashioned
way. I plan on doing it.
