I've never owned an F series Rollei, but I still have a 3.5 E and a 2.8 D. I prefer the 3.5 version for hand held work because the 2.8 feels front heavy in my hands and I need a higher shutter speed to really hold it steady. Since it is only about 2/3 of a stop slower and I rarely use a Rollei at full aperture the 3.5 has gotten a lot more use. The meter at this point isn't working, but I used these mostly in a studio with flash, so that isn't much of a loss. Good luck with your 3.5F--it is a marvelous camera.
