I participated in my camera collector club's barn sale, full of eye candy in there. Everything from $1 bargains to wartime cameras to brass lenses. I noticed a newer Rollei case in one of the preview pictures and knew I wanted it if it was in good shape, as the newest one I had even seen or held is my K4B Automat. Going into the battlefield, I made the beeline to the shelves, scanning for that case. Fortunately it hadn't caught anybody's eye and my hands were the first on it. Opening up the cover, I first read '3.5 F'....then I took the front cover off to reveal this beauty. 3.5 F, Planar lens. Came with a barely used never-ready case, strap, focus knob cover, cap, and an accessory kit case with two filters, light yellow and red. All original Rollei stuff. A little sticker from Oceanside Camera Repair says this camera has been serviced by Harry Fleenor at one point in time, and my does it act like it. Works flawlessly, everything is smooth and effortless, optics are crystal. The light meter even works! Not bad for $300, eh? I cannot believe it, I'm so in love right now. I am concerned about using the original strap. It's in okay shape, still pliable, but has small cracking on the underside and it just isn't too comfortable on my neck with that heavy camera on it. I'll see about finding some used lugs to make a new strap, any recommendations on what is comfortable? And I'm also looking for a half case to fit the Rollei to protect against fingers and minor bumps. Yes yes, they are tough cameras. But I can't see beating this camera up, I want to keep it as nice as possible if I can. No full case, it will have a spot in my camera bag if it comes along. Not a lot of newer versions besides Luigi (waaay too rich for me) and I've also seen Mr. Zhou cases, which seem to be similar yet much cheaper. Anybody use one and was happy with it? Or perhaps another alternative? Tomorrow is a car show featuring vintage race cars, the perfect subjects. A roll or two of Kodak TX-400 and I cannot wait to bring her back to use.
