Rollei 35 XF ajust Rangefinder

  1. Hi,
    I want to find information to how to ajust the rangefinder on my Rollei 35XF,
    because the double image never are the same.
  2. A common problem with the XF... fortunately it is pretty easy to adjust. Peel off the leatherette (covering) under the viewfinder, and you will find a small screw. Set the lens to oo (infinity), point at an object at least 50m (150 ft) away and turn the screw until both images match precisely. In most cases the covering is sticky enough so you do not need to reglue it. Otherwise, any household glue will do.
  3. Thanks for the tip, Winfried.
