Well, in return for taking care of a good friend of my family's cat while he went on vacation, he gave me his old Rollei 35, it's flash, collapsable lens hood, medium yellow filter, protective filter, and manual, as he no longer used it. It has the Zeiss Tessar 40mm f3.5 and it's serial is 3067585. The shutter sticks at all speeds below 30 but from 30 to 500 the speeds seem to work correctly. I just put a roll of E200 in it, so we'll just have to see how accurate it is. The light meter is spot on, I checked it with my L-508. My biggest problem is that the manual seems to be in French (wtf?) and I can't read French. It took a while to figure out, but by looking at the pictures I finally figured out how to retract the lens. :rolleyes: Sorry for the ramble, but can anyone tell me the age of this camera and any tips and tricks when using a camera such as this?
