The "Rolleiflex" name is most commonly used to refer to Rollei's premier line of medium format twin lens reflex (TLR) cameras. (A companion line intended for amateur photographers, Rolleicord, existed for several decades.) However, a variety of TLRs and SLRs in medium format, and zone focus, and SLR 35 mm, as well as digital formats have also been produced under the Rolleiflex label. The 120 roll film Rolleiflex series is marketed primarily to professional photographers. Rolleiflex cameras have used film formats 117 (Original Rolleiflex), 120 (Standard, Automat, Letter Models, 120 CameramediRollei-Magic, and T model), and 127 (Baby Rolleiflex).

Review for Rolleiflex 3.5A by Wongler:

"Build Quality of the Rolleiflex 3.5A is on par with other German machinery of the era, the 3.5A was produced in 1951-54 which is around the time as my Leica M3. To compare the two, I’d say that they are in the top of their markets. With everything considered it is still a fun camera and one that I think everyone should have or try at least a few times."
