    Hey guys,

    I know what a Rolleinar is. What is a Rolleipar?

    Older version of Rolleinar. It had three parts: Rolleipar x 2 and one Rolleiparkeil. You put one Rolleipar together with the Rolleiparkeil on the upper viewing lens and then a single Rolleipar on the lower (taking) lens.

    Yes, as indicated an early version with the diopter and parallax-correcting prism as separate pieces.

    No, the Rolleipar is the parallax compensating prism. also called Rolleiparkeil later. The close-up lenses are the Zeiss Proxars and the Rolleinars.
