Problem: Wobbly Lens on Rollei 35 S

  1. There is a little wobble in the lens barrel and when I shutter fires I noticed the lens moves horizontally either to the right or to the left. I tested it after this problem and found out serious shakes on 1/250s shutter speed and lower.

    Anyone experienced this problem with their rollei? Any idea how to fix it?

    Many thanks!
  2. Its been a while since I've used a Rollei 35 and this may be a silly answer but did you twist the barrel to lock it in place? Other wise I have no answer for you other than to take it to a camera repairman.
  3. Yeah, it's extended and locked. No problem with this part. The only issue is the it's not stiff, it moves when the shutter fires causing a slight shake.
