Ok, last one for a while..I promise! Something about a Rollei, any Rollei, that just makes you want to pick them up and shoot some film. The things are just so darn nice, nothing oozes quality like a good Rolleiflex...or Rolleicord for that matter. Like all hopeless collectors I have many Rolleis, some new, some really old...all take great pictures.The 2.8 Series are at the top of the heap, well price wise anyway, and come with either the Zeiss Planar or like mine...the Schneider Xenotar. Many aficionados claim that the Planar is superior to the Xenotar...it's not, end of story. A lot of 2.8's and 3.5's that come with a Xenotar seemed to have gone to the US, don't know why, might just have been the policy of the importer...maybe slightly cheaper..not that I'm saying that Americans are cheap The original owner of my 2.8E was cheap though, he opted for the meter-less version to save a few bucks, can't understand why, because they were not much cheaper on a camera that cost a fortune in it's day. Doesn't matter to me as these meters have mostly passed on by now, and that clear meter window on the side is nearly always cracked. Anyway, here is the camera and a few pics.
