    2.8F PLANAR ROLLEIFLEX TLR CAMERA WITH CARL ZEISS 80MM LENS

    CLASSIC ROLLEIFLEX TLR

    Offered here for sale is a simply marvelous camera that is truly just about the best ever made. This Rolleiflex 2.8F has been used very sparingly over its lifetime. I've owned it for about 15 or more years and only used it once or twice for some portraits. For most all that time it was stored in a humidity controlled container.
    This variation is known as the 2.8F type 2 in the Rollei User's Manual by Ian Parker. The serial number is 2437608. The Parker Manual is included.

    Mechanically the camera has been checked, and is absolutely fully functional. The self timer, and the shutter speeds are working well and accurately, including the slow ones. Aperture wheel, shutter wheel, focusing knob, and the film advance are smooth. The aperture blades are clean, dry, oil-free.

    Cosmetically the body is in great condition for its age, shows minimum evidence of use over the years. No dents or dings or visible scratches, some very slight marks in the paint. There are some small cracks in the plastic cover over the meter dial (see the photos). The leatherette is beautiful, and intact!!!!! One very minor wear place in the leatherette insert on the side button for inserting the film. There is no waist level finder, only the eye level prism finder. The metal on the finder has 2 very small dings, which may not be visible in the photos, and the finder paint shows some aging fade. The apparently original leather case has been adapted to accept the prism finder, and the case is in good condition with normal signs of wear.

    Optically the glass of both taking and viewing lenses are clean and clear, no scratches, no haze, no dust, no fungus, no cleaning marks. The focusing screen is clean and clear.

    Please note all photos were original from jpeg file and NO correction or modification has been made.

    Taking lens is a Carl Zeiss Planar 1: 2.8 / 80mm serial number 3939253.

    Finder lens is a Heidosmat 1: 2.8 / 80mm serial number 891681.

    Shutter Synchro Compur, 1/500 sec., B + X-sync., self timer,

    No strap and no lens caps.

    Film use 120 film for 12 Exp. (6x6).
