[Rollei] Visit to Rollei / 66 dual P questions

Ferdi et al.,

Thanks for the "Einblick" into the Rollei Production in Braunschweig. It
must be a nightmare to coordinate so many different items, maintain top
quality AND stay competitive in this market.  VERY interesting.
I was intrigued by the way certain pieces are produced at certain times of
the year, like the projectors.

Apropos projectors:

Will the dual format 66 dual P be produced in the forseeable future?
I am hoping to eventually replace my P11 with a dual P but retain my three
P11 lenses (110, 150 and 250) assuming they will work on the dual P just

Anyone on this list who is using the 66 dual P and can give a performance
assessment / comparison to P11?


 Except for TLRs, the assembly lines are modern.
