    I´m considering buying a flex. I´d prefer a 3.5 E F, or C (in order of preference). I might also consider a 2.8 C, D or E if the price is right. A late model T (III or IV) in pristine condition may get consideration(I already have a Tessar type TLR, so not first option).

    I´d like it to be in good condition, no functional or optical defects. Scratches to the body (not lenses) and general wear is to be expected, the less of it the better. It would be nice if it has been in regular use, and with a fairly recent CLA.

    Meter? No, not necessary. At least I don´t want to pay a premium for one. If it has a meter, it must work.

    Xenotar or Planar? Both work, the Xenotar if I could choose.

    Case would be nice, as would hood

    Budget? Depends - but would like keep it under four figures in USD.

    Good to see someone has done his research. Good luck.

    Got a 2.8E Xenotar in excellent condition that was serviced last year. Also has a Rollei fresnel on it. PM me and we can discuss it

    I ended up agreeing to take ownership of a 2.8E3 with Rolleinar closeup sets 1 and 2. A camera with a few issues, but with recent CLA and at a reasonable price. Thanks for all the help.
