Anyone out there using a Rollei 4.0FW?

I have a used Rollei 4.0FW in quite remarkable condition on reserve at a local camera shop. But before finalising the purchase, I would like to know if anyone is currently using this camera and about their experience(s) with it. How does it compare with the older Rollei wide angle cameras as to build quality and so on? The dealer pointed out that since this is a newish camera and lens, it does not suffer from the separation issues that are allegedly common in the older wide angle lenses. Any comment? Is the vintage model still preferable from a user's rather than a collector's point of view? I already use a Rollei 2.8F and I would like to pair this wide angle camera with it.
