    Rolleiflex MX-EVS


    Body - I would say it is a 8/10

    Leatherette - 8/10 - Front leatherette was removed to clean shutter & lenses. It cold not be re-attached.

    Lenses - 75mm f2.8 Heidosmat viewing lens, 75mm f3.5 Zeiss Tessar taking lens. Both were carefully cleaned and dust removed although there is a speck on the inside of the viewing lens still. Both have some small cleaning marks but nothing that should reduce contrast or otherwise affect images.

    Shutter - Was slow to respond, shutter was cleaned and is now snappy and responsive. I don't have a shutter tested but all sound appropriate except the 1 sec seems a tiny bit long, but that may be just me.

    Aperture - Dry and smooth

    Focus - Smooth

    Magnifying Hood - Works well, is clean. I cleaned the interior mirror and GG as well. The GG has a 10mm grid.

    Inside & Other - Clean inside, film counter works properly and a take up spool and short cable release is included with the camera. This camera has a 3/8 tripod socket so an adapter will most likely be needed. I do not have a hood or caps for it, sorry.

    Here is your chance to get a super sharp camera in great working condition. Has a few bit of paint loss on the hood and needs new leather on the front but these are only cosmetic and you can recover it what ever color you desire. www.cameraleather.com has kits for the camera as low as $14.50.

    I would keep the camera but my new Mamiya Super 23 is needing a 6X9 back and a finder for the 65mm lens so the Rolleiflex is on the chopping block.

    $250 OBO plus shipping (USPS at cost) Please feel free to make an offer, I have checked closed auctions on eBay and my price is at the low end of the spectrum.
