thanks to everyone who replied and contributed to this thread. 

i guess the ?300UK / $400US Rollei DK4010 is not really up to the task of
producing images suitbale for letter/A4 size print. the photopgraphy shop
insists the lens is good enough - which it may be - but at 4MP there will
not be enough pixels to spread over the printed glossy sheets.

Well, when it comes to ruling, Nikon is the way to go. Their lens since 
1950 have been good, very good, at prices that make sense. Digital is 
also the way to go presently. The Nikon D70 or the Canon Rebel XT are 
extreme values for good color photos with enough resolution to produce 
beautiful 13" by 19" prints and larger.

That's my two cents.
