RE: [Rollei] Screen

Sure, but ALL modern screens do this (even the Rollei 6000 series
screens) so the choice is a darker harder to focus screen or a newer
brighter one that has the fresnel on top. Just don't rub a sharp object
on the screen and they both work fine. Vulnerable indeed!

Just as Austin and I thought.

Having the Fresnel on top makes the screen more vulnerable.
