It's got the Heliar. Would've been a miracle to get the Apo-Lanthar, but for $25, I can't complain. From my research, it appears that the two are very close in performance anyways - the desirability of the A-L probably has more to do with it's rarity. I actually passed this one over, when I first looked at it, then drove three hours home, went on the net, and found out what an idiot I was for not buying it. Drove three hours back to get it, the next day, and then home again. Did the same thing with the Pentax S. Didn't know what it was, left it at the thrift store (it was Saturday at 5 p.m.), drove an hour home and went back Monday at 8:45. For the Rollei 35, I stood in line for a couple of hours to get it - I'd seen it in the window, and they were putting it up for sale on Saturday. People had to queue up to get in. I figured it was worth it, for $14.

If I can get some film, and figure out a cost-effective way to develop and print it (they want $4 per shot at the only place I found), I'd love to do some urban landscape stuff with it. 6x9 looks to be an excellent format for that kind of thing.

What about the Auto 110? Do they even sell film for it anymore? How about developing and printing?
