Problems of the 6008

Well - this photo shouldn't mean anything. I wanted to test something and my probably worst fear came true. It didn't come true actually, I just figured out that it was and is true. The medium format camera "Rolleiflex 6008" has a terrible back-focusing problem. After all - it is no problem for landscape photographies, since I use apertures like 8 or higher. But for photo shot wide open - this is crap.
