Differences in SL66 SL66 E SL66 SE and SL X

Hello,
I am planning to buy an SL66 set and would like to know about the main differences of the SL bodies. I don't mean features, but reliability of them (considering the age of the SL 66, for ex&le), how user friendly they are, are there major changes through the line, ect.
I would use it only indoor, with handheld metering, on tripod (I have my Mamiya 6 RF for point-and-shoot photography).
Is it woth to buy a newer model ever I do not use the metering features, for ex&le?

Thanks, Attila


p.s. I am interested in the differences of the "RolleiMade RFT", the "Zeiss", Zeiss T *", ect. I have started a new thread in the lense section on that matter.

Hi Attila (hi again :))

Hi again (I have lots of time because I have a broken leg :)

I never owned a 66SL. I had 6008i with a bunch of lenses but never shooted seriously with it because it was so heavy and hard to shoot handheld (which I prefer). I then switched to Hasselblad (three bodies, two jams), then to Mamyia 6. And I'm happy with this system: light, very small (compared to other systems) and supersharp.

I do not know much about Rollei 66 but you should be careful not to get a pro's camera (that's what I have been advised). For my style it's too heavy, too.

Bye
Martin
