I 've been considering getting a Rollei 35 for some time now and I faced the usual dilemma: 35S or 35T? I'm a fan of Tessar designs, my 2.8/50 Tessar in M42 is one of my favorites for sharpness achieved (at a very low price too!). While considering the matter, a question formed in my mind: Are all CZJ Tessar lenses found in all those compact german cameras from the 50s - 60s equally competent (other than differences attributed to different coatings perhaps)? What I mean is, if camera size is not a concern, should one spend 100+ euros on a Rollei 35T, or would (for example) a Zeiss Ikon Contessa LKE provide the same results at 1/4 the price with the added benefit of RF focusing? Any ideas / suggestions on cheaper Tessar-equipped alternatives to the Rollei 35T?
