Well, I just received my Topcon Super RE, (a.k.a Super D Serial # starting with #46) in the mail and it is just stunning... I don't mean in looks the category, I mean in the "smoothest" transport category. We just recently had a "lively" thread posted where Tony Lockerbie asked about the "best advance", and many candidates popped up. But with out a doubt, the "smoothest" advance is a Topcon #46 Super D or RE. (Motor or winder driven cameras don't count) I'm telling you, this is the King!; something to behold and there's nothing out there like it. (Ball bearing smooth) Picture contains the 4 cameras that got the most mentions; IMHO, arranged in order of smoothness, but the Topcon should be way out in front ! Marc Rochkind who owns many cameras, just aquired an outfit & I'm so envious - Let's see if he chimes in for a vote now that he has one to.
