    FS: Rolleiflex 2.8F Planar Type 2 K7F2 CLA'd + Tropical Case

    Rolleiflex 2.8F Planar Type 2 K7F2

    Note: The missing screw at the name-plate has been replaced.

    If you are looking for a top condition Rolleiflex, this might be it.

    Just back from a full CLA. Cleaned, Lubed & Adjusted by Schönherrs Foto AB right here in Stockholm, Sweden. Schönherrs Foto has more than 40 years experience in using, handling, cleaning and selling analog cameras.

    I can show a copy of CLA receipt if anyone is interested.

    Serviced worth $200 USD

    * Both taking & viewing lens perfect. Not a scratch. Mint & clean.
    * Body superb & beautiful condition.
    * Focus, perfect, like butter.
    * Hood folds up and down with no effort.
    * Aperture and shutter dials work perfectly
    -- Aperture dial is showing correct DoF scale on the light-meter readout.
    -- All shutter speeds accurate and correct.
    * Working light-meter.
    * Perfect & scratch free focusing screen. Removable of course.
    * ISO dial on the side very easy to adjust with confident clicks.
    * Inside, spotless.

    I think you get the idea, it had a full CLA.

    Comes with Original Rolleiflex lens-cap (you can see a picture of it at the tropical case photos) & remote shutter release.

    Price: $1950

    Rolleiflex Tropical Case

    This is a fascinating product. You might really really want this if you live in very humid environments.

    This is called a Tropical case, as the name suggest, it is specially adapted for tropical humid environments.

    The outer body is very hard, some sort of metal. The case is held together by a sturdy, almost over-engineerd hinge-grip (Photo #1)

    At the closed position the handle is down and grips the fittings on the side and closes, very snuggly, the case. When you pull the handle up from underneath, over the case, it opens.

    The inside edges of the case has rubber-sealing (Photo #2), so moisture is kept out as much as possible, and on the inside, what looks like a roll of film, is actually some sort of salt crystals that absorb moisture inside the case. (Photo #3)

    The camera gently snaps into the little platform that is seen next to the salt container. You simply slide the camera in with the little round base that Rolleiflex cameras have, it snaps into place, and stays put.

    Also, there are rubber cushions on the inside so that when the camera is folded in, and sits inside the case, it rests gently on them, and not the hard metal!

    Beautiful german engineering.

    Price: $200
