I’ve often looked at Rollei 35s thinking how nice it would be to have a pocketable camera to take everywhere. My enthusiasm is inevitably dampened by considering the seemingly poor ergonomics of the Rollei, the vexing question of batteries for the meter, and prices that stay in the premium range. Thankfully I’ve got this forum to inform my camera choices / feed my GAS. I believe Rick Drawbridge shared info about the Agfa Optima Sensor line of cameras, which impressed me. While the Optima 1535 remains pricey thanks to its couple rangefinder, the 535 is still readily available at prices lower than the shipping cost of the camera. So, I’ve ended up with an Optima 535 Sensor. These are the first shots from my camera. My quick take: Nice little lens, handy and accurate metering even with alkaline PX625 batteries, and the NICEST viewfinder I’ve used in a long while. Handsome industrial design is exactly to my taste and makes an easy-to-carry and operate camera.
