    This is a Rolleiflex 2.8C (SN# 1425198) with the coveted Planar taking lens. The glass on the taking and viewing lens appear to be flawless. The camera had a CLA about a year ago so everything works just as it should. The cosmetics are fairly good for a camera of this age, with no damage and typical wear (please examine the photos and make sure you're happy). The only issue that I can really find is that the little arm that covers the flash jack when not in use is missing (purely cosmetic and inconsequential to use).

    This is a highly collectible camera which also produces breathtaking images.

    Sold as shown.

    Price: $700 plus insured shipping

    I'm not sure why, but the size of the 2.8 lenses didn't strike me until I looked at these pictures. That is simply a beautiful camera!

    If you don't mind, who did the CLA?

    Whilton Camera Pasadena. As to the above comment, yes the Planar is something special and it's a rather seriously large work of precision glass.
